Wow! I never realized how fun AND frustrating photography could be! PHEW! Good thing I am loving the fun part more right now! LOL! Once I get this manual thing down I know it will get much easier for me.
These pictures were all taken in manual mode meaning that I adjusted the Aperture (f stop), Shutter Speed, & ISO. As you can see, all of the pictures turned out different. I wish I could tell you the settings for each but I didn't write anything down. Oops! I was in picture taking mode and just went with the flow.
Story behind the pictures: My son (who is 6 years old) just learned how to ride a bike without the training wheels this week. I wanted to capture some of this with my new skills. Notice that his training wheels are still attached but pulled up to the side?? They will be completely removed tomorrow. One of the wheels fell off on a family bike ride a few weeks ago. He kind of had no choice on learning to ride without training wheels. LOL!
I love how the picture below turned out. The Shutter Speed was super high. He was going super fast and I was able to capture him suspended in space & time. :)
Isn't his toothless smile adorable??
Not really sure what he was looking at but I was able to capture it on film. :)
Comments: These are 5 of my favorite pics from this photo session. I probably took over 25-30 pictures and trashed almost half of them. Some were out of focus, dark, etc. I am learning that I need to practice, practice, practice...... and even with that there are going to be a lot of mistakes!
P.S. Yes, he had a helmet on earlier but took it off right before I came out with my camera. I guess I was so much in the picture taking mode I didn't realize he didn't have it on. Now that I am looking at the pictures I am realizing!!
