I had a most lovely week end. I went to Indianapolis to do 2 photo shoots and both were great. I have been taking online photog classes and learning how to shoot in manual. So when I did my shoots this week end I had decided that shooting in manual would take to much time (especially with little ones). And - did you know??? I could not shoot in Auto. It was weird - I just could not do it. So - both sessions were in manual. That's a huge and big step for me. I could not achieve the looks I was trying to get in AUTO. Now - I am still new to the manual thing and ti took me a bit longer in the sessions but - I did it. And I am proud of myself.

I am posting a few photos from session #1.

I don't see where to comment on your 'smirk' - but I love it! :) Glasses are cool.

So I love the smirk and I love your photo session. I remember thinking that I could go back to AV mode after shooting manual and I couldn't do it either. Once you have full control over your camera, you won't go back. You're doing great though! Have a great week.
