Yesterday we headed to the zoo on Sam’s last vacation day. I took my 18-55mm telephoto lens in hopes of getting some practice in with a whole different setting. Bella loved seeing all of her animals, and it was gorgeous out. Sunny, which was strangely harder to take pictures in than the dark cavern setting.
With a toddler, it’s difficult to remember to get all the manual modes set, the lighting right, hit their face, get a blur, and find a great angle while still getting the shot quick enough. Sometimes it comes out a bit blurry or bright, but the only way I’m going to get better is practice.
Right? So here’s our day:
I’d love to hear places you go to take interesting shots and practice. Give me some ideas besides my house and the park. Or maybe in them – just things I’ve never thought of.
