This year I decided to participate in Project 365 as a chance to practice my photography skills and try to capture more of those everyday moments with my children. They are growing up so fast and I want to remember this fun and crazy stage of our lives!
I will be posting here every Friday (well almost…I already missed one) with a few favorite photos from the week and anything I learned while shooting. If you have constructive criticism please feel free to share! I’m here to learn 🙂
My specific goals:
- Nail Focus
- Improve indoor photography skills
- Work on my creative eye
An assortment from weeks 1 and 2 (all shot with my 35 mm lens)
ISO 800 f/2.2 SS 1/50
If I could take this again I definitely would’ve used a faster shutter speed and cranked up the ISO to compensate. Focus is also slightly off but I love it anyway
ISO 1600 f/4 ss 1/30
In his dimly lit room I used a super slow shutter speed to let in as much light as possible
ISO 1600 f/2 ss 1/160
ISO 1600 f/2 ss 1/125
ISO 1600 f/2 SS 1/160
ISO 400 f/2 SS 1/160
On this shot I also used my external flash and bounced it off the ceiling so with the added light I was able to use a much lower ISO. Lower ISO….less grain 🙂
ISO 1600 f/2.5 SS 1/50
In the dark bathroom this would’ve been a good time to get out the external flash. Then I could’ve used a faster SS and narrowed my depth of field making it easier to get both boys sharply in focus. Sometimes though you just have to take advantage of the moment real quickly and I’m happy with what I managed to get 🙂
I hope this inspires you to pick up your camera and start shooting!
