Practicing for Baby Daigle's First Photo Session

by CajunKate

So today I spent a while practicing with the manual settings on my camera. I read a quote that really motivated me: "If you leave your dSLR on auto, you have essentially purchased an expensive and large point-and-shoot camera. For shame." Now, I know my camera is not a dSLR, but I still feel like I should make better use of its features than I do.

I want to be ready for my first photo session with BDaigle and Sista's new baby. He or she (the whole not knowing thing is so exciting!) is due September 2. Could I BE more excited that in less than 9 days, give or take, I will have niece or nephew # 10? That's rhetorical, of course. The answer is an emphatic, "NO! I could not!" Hot diggity! A brand new one to spoil rotten!

Anyway, here are a few practice shots from today:

Hmmmm...judging from these shots it's clear that I want the baby to be born green and covered in dew. Interesting.
