Jan Week 1 Photos

I decided it was a little impractical to post a picture every day, both because that’s a lot of posts, and because I probably don’t have time every day to be posting a picture.

Instead, I’ll be doing a weekly post that displays my favorite pictures of the week.  That said, here are  a few more from the past week. A couple are from the Hogle Zoo and Living Planet Aquarium. Those trips were good for practicing, because the light was constantly changing as we went in and out of different rooms and buildings, so I had to keep on readjusting for new lighting situations.

Jan. 2 Photo

My dad, my brother, and my husband went shooting on Saturday and I got this pretty picture of my brother shooting. I love the blue sky!

Whenever I shoot outside, I often forget to switch the white balance to daylight, but it makes a huge difference! It allows for the nice sunny, golden tones to warm up the picture.
