Having two incredibly photogenic and entertaining kids mean that I am taking a lot of pictures. A month ago we travelled down to California and I ended up having a conversation with my husband’s uncle who is interested in photography. He was helping me to understand some of the functions on our camera that I hadn’t taken the time to play with. Since then I have been playing with aperture settings and focal length. Last night we had a potluck (delicious!) and two of our friends brought us some gorgeous bouquets. I love taking picture of flowers and today decided to practice with various settings using the flowers as my subjects.
