So I took the kids and my parents and headed up to Beaver Lake in order to try out my new camera. I took 327 shots, and managed to delete at least 200 of them. These are what I consider the best of the lot, and I would LOVE a critique of both my composition and technical stuff.
I'm going for a depth of field look as much as possible, however I'm not sure that I am quite achieving it. I tend to use the AV (Aperature Priority mode) and I like to leave it at 2.8. I think that works best when I'm right up in people's faces, correct? The camera determines the shutter speed and I sometimes fiddle with ISO to brighten things up, but I'm a bit paranoid about doing that this early in the game. So I have done some after photo editing to brighten things up a bit. It feels like cheating, though. Is it cheating? Or is that the name of the game in DSLR land?
