I just wanted to say thanks for the great advice! Yesterday I was taking snaps at my Mom's for Thanksgiving and she has much better light, so I was able to get my ss up to 1/125 and what a difference it made! All of my pictures were so much sharper and clearer! I don't want to post any cause they were just random snaps, but I hope to take DD's Christmas pics at my mom's house now.
By the way is a white background really hard to work with? I don't know what color I want to use for DD's Christmas pics. I don't think I want to use black or gray. What do you ladies suggest? I will be using natural lighting since I don't have a speedlight or anything.
