Hands On Photography

Canadian Scrapbooker magazine has a column by Sue Sykes called Hands On Photography which gives you tips and techniques for better photographs. For March/April, there is a little blog contest going on over HERE, but really, it's not for the prize that I'm doing it, it's for the lessons! When you submit your photos, you have to indicate the variables like this - f/3.5, 1/20 sec, and ISO 800. I don't have a clue how to use these settings to their full potential, and it's about time I learned how to use my camera! Truthfully, I didn't even know how to retrieve that info and had to put the card back into my camera and press "info" to find it.

Here is my picture to showcase front lighting, with my daughter positioned to face the window.
And here is my picture to showcase side lighting. My daughter was positioned beside the window, with the light coming in from the right side of her. Isn't she a wonderful model!

Are you up for the challenge?
