Things I am doing differently this time:
- I am not going to share it here. The pressure actually made it harder for me.
- I am going to use instagram like no one's business.
- Much fewer posed photos, many more "lifestyle" photos. Like yesterday's photo.
I'm going to use this year to experiment with different camera techniques I have been wanting to try. This morning I wanted to take a quick shot of the toothpaste Alex had smeared all over his face but he mostly got it off by the time I got the camera. My camera was already set to f1.8 so I kept it there for a quick shot. MISTAKE.
Doesn't this look like some terrible school picture gone horribly wrong?
On the upside, I totally nailed the focus at f1.8 while standing super close to him.
