My Dad tweeted my last blog post to his gazillion Twitter followers and they helped me figure out what I was doing wrong with my new camera lens!
I still have a lot to learn but I've managed to get my pictures to not be so washed out and bright.
I took my new lens to Isabelle's spring music concert, it worked amazing! It's very heavy, which I'm not excited about, and takes a lot of energy to get it out and ready, but the quality of the pictures I am able to get is worth the weight! I don't understand anything in the 'manual' setting so the only way I can get pictures at all is to use 'auto,' which I've heard makes photographers cringe.
Brew makes the best test subject. He loves the attention! And he's the most handsomest guy ever!
