I took my loaner DSLR out today, to the nearby wetlands. My goal was to try getting used to a DSLR, rather than to get the perfect photo, so the kids are dressed for cold weather and play, not photos. And the poses and composition on these aren't top-notch by any means... but I'm psyched anyway, just for the sheer joy of seeing lovely depth of field on these! This camera feels awkward to me and there's a lot to get used to, but it's a fun start. CC always welcome, but not necessary!
Settings were f3.2 and f3.5 on all except the one on the rock, which was f2.5. I got a bit chicken about going too wide open and not nailing focus. SS was 1/600 or higher, and ISO was 200.
