This photo is one of the ‘Oops! Sad it didn’t work’ photos.

My settings were f/5.6, 1/60 sec, ISO 100. And because I didn’t turn up my shutter speed, I wasn’t able to freeze Bennett swinging and he is blurry. It was also hard to tell just looking at the back of my camera so every photo with the swing was a bust. 😦



I decided to go ahead and use a few of the shots from the Fox family session for this week. Due to a lot of work travel, I’m a bit behind on picking up the camera and posting.

For their session, we went to Shelley Lake in Raleigh. I’ve always gone to the lake to walk the trails but it was a great suggestion from another friend. The trees were beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange around the lake.

I love this shot of this family of 3.  It took a few tries and letting Bennett throw a stick to get a smile out of him. And I am so glad I was able to capture it.

My settings for this shot on the 50mm were f/4.5, 1/200 sec and ISO 100.


I know I’m a little behind on posts but since coming back from our trip, it’s been a little hectic. This week I am going to focus on shooting manual the whole time. I typically shoot in aperture priority but I want to start shooting manual as much as I can.

Saturday morning I had the privilege of shooting the Fox family. It was so much fun!

For their session I used the Canon 50mm lens. And my settings were f/4.5, 1/200 sec and ISO 100.

Isn’t he so cute?! 🙂
