Hi again, I'm Erika, I have been mostly lurking for the past 2 years, posted only a few times. Finally I'm starting to understand how things work a bit more so I'm taking more photos. Not a great timing since my daughter is 19 months now and she won't stop moving, she is too young to bribe her. I'm almost 20 weeks pregnant with my second one and I'm very excited because I will be able to take some photos of a baby that stays in one spot for longer than 2 seconds.
I met this wonderful lady at one of my daughter's gym classes, she has a 22 month old and she is a pro photographer, she just started a few years ago herself. She has been giving me tips and explaining me how things work, I picked up most of my knowlege from you ladies on this forum but it is nice to have someone explain it and show it in person too.
She told me I should get a different lens, I had a great lens before but the F went only to min. 3.5, so I got 50mm 1.8. It takes some getting used to because my old one had a zoom, but since I can take better photos I'm very happy.
I have a Nikon D100 camera.
I will try to post a lot more on here now, not sure how much I will be able to CC because I still have a lot to learn, but I will do my best.
Here are some photos for CC that I took in the past few days, I didnt have great light in the house because it has been raining outdoors so I was using F1.8 a lot. I adjusted contrast, some color because her hair looked reddish from the ceiling lights and i had a green tint from the walls and her outfit, adjusted curves and levels too in some, I'm not very good at fixing the photos yet either, I use PS7.
Sorry I'm posting so many pics for CC, not sure what size I should post them, dont want them to be too big.
