Flash Back Friday

In the summer of 2007 I was learning how to use my new Nikon camera.
It was a D80.  I was relearning how to shoot on manual.  My Minolta sat dormant for many, many years due to a broken light meter.  My Minolta was full manual, including the focus.  yikes.


I noted that this was shot at f/1.8


This was shot at f/16

Katie was not enjoying the harsh sun.


Three days later I shot her in the open shade at the pool.
I learned that day.
Open shade is the best.

Shooting in the bright sun is best from a distance.


I took my camera on walks.


I learned about bokeh.


My love of photography had come back to me.


So much joy.

I have watched this speech twice.
I hope you enjoy it and that it encourages you like it did me.

Encourage one another,
