Just Soaking in every ounce of this weather before we wake up to triple digits again. Notice I had to put a cardigan on Mila because it was THAT breezy. Ok--- it was sort of like a crazy wind-tunnel, but if that means cool temps, we'll take it.
And then we ran into some friends with one of the cutest little two-year-olds I've ever seen... so obviously I couldn't help myself. I mean look at that face. This was a bit after sunset, it was nearly dark out. I think I had the ISO on my new camera cranked to like 6000. Do you see any grain? I don't. Oh did I mention I got the new Canon 5D Mark 2? You photo-friends will appreciate that. But I've been afraid to mention it since I DO NOT feel comfortable with it yet and DO NOT feel like all my pictures are turning out magical or anything. I'd gotten used to shooting in aperture mode on my Nikon D40, and that just doesn't seem to be working on this one. The prime lens I got for it is the 85mm f/1.8, so maybe it's because I'm used to having those extra stops (plural? not sure) on my 30mm. But this one I feel like I have to shoot in manual. And I feel like I'm CONSTANTLY adjusting my settings for a little more light, little less light, little more, little less... and then should I use my shutter speed, my aperture, or my ISO to get it???? Nothing a little practice can't fix right? I'm still absolutely thrilled about this camera. It can do amazing things... but I've got some catching up to do to deserve it.
Can you imagine how nuts Mila went when she couldn't hold this dog quite like her friend? I think we just might have to get one some day.
