Photo Practice

I really want to get better at taking photos.  How to not use the flash and the auto button, haha.  I spent an hour or so tonight trying to figure out how to set my ISO, shutter speed, white balance and aperture.  These things would work best in outdoor light or with good lighting in general.  But I'm in Alaska in the winter.  Uggg. 
  
AND I have photography mental blocks.  I want to do well, but it sure doesn't come easy for me. This is one of those "If at first (or time 20) you don't succeed, try, try again."
  
Anyway, I wanted to show a couple pics I took of Lydia.  I played with the color on them for fun.  They're not great, but they're cute.

This is the only candid I got.  Once she knows I'm taking pics, she waits until I'm ready again and smiles for me.

"Oops, I missed my cue" 

"Me? A rascal?" (ignore the grainy nature of this one, I just love her expression and hair!)


Off I go to try and learn some more
