A few weeks ago I read a blog post over on Look What Mom Found... And Dad Too! about DSLR for dummies and how to start taking photos in manual mode. This post also talked about playing with the aperture settings. I've had my Canon DSLR camera for over a year and half and I have always just used it on manual. Learning how to truly use it just seems so overwhelming. But I decided to give it a go and I was pleasantly surprised with my results.

OK so right now you may be thinking - so what? How are these pictures any different or any better than pictures you have posted in the past? I will let you see for yourself with a comparison of this week's WW pictures to some WW pictures from earlier this summer. The older photos were taken with my iPhone 4.
It is amazing what a good camera can do. I'm anxious to keep experimenting and to get better so I can eventually take great pictures of my kids!
