Week 3

My sweetie and I have been practicing with the manual settings on our camera for this weeks lesson in Maggie Holmes photography class.  No more Auto-Mode for me!!!!  I love being in control of my camera!!!  I have learned so much, but the best part is not being afraid to play with the settings!!!  I am an overcomer!!!  Whoo hoo, it's a great feeling!!

The first 2 pictures are of Benny who I am having to take as many photos of as I can before he leaves for Basic Training....sniff, sniff!!!  We are practicing for those all important Senior photos that we are going to be taking ourselves.  
Camera: Canon 10 D
Lens: 50 mm f/1.8
Shutter: 1/750
Aperture: f/4.5
ISO: 400

The second picture I changed the ISO.
Shutter: 1/350
Aperture: f/4.5
IS0: 200

The indoor shots were a little more tricky.  Charley was pretty sleepy, so he made a fine subject today!!!  The first one is a little lighter than the second one.  In the first picture you can see just how tired he is.
Shutter:  1/250
Aperture: f/1.8
ISO: 400
Awww....sweet puppy!!  It's a little darker, but I just love that face!!
Shutter: 1/45
Aperture:  f/5.6
ISO: 400
I am so loving this class!!!  Now that school is out, I will have lots more time to play with my camera!!!!  Whoo hoo!!

Thanks for stopping by!! 
I will be posting again in the morning with my Scrapping the Music layout!!!
