Starting to get out to shoot again.

Now that my son is just over one year old. I am able to go out with my family more and start to shoot for practice. Over the July 25th weekend I managed to get out and shoot at the zoo and a nearby county fair.

I think this is the first time (since May) I’ve been out shooting with something other than my AE-1 Film camera or mobile phone. It felt good to get out and take time to shoot both places.

You can see the shots on my Flickr account here:

Took this quick snap of my sister at the family XMas gathering.

Feeling that I’m still a super-noob with composition and lighting I was really surprised on how well it came out with my on camera speed flash bouncing off the wood ceiling in and attempt to soften the hard evening light coming in the window from the left of the frame.

I’m still learning to use my flash better but this shot shows I’m heading in the right direction.

Now if only I was better at post processing to soften the image up a little…. :p
