I know these aren't perfect with the focus a little off, but he looked too cute. So, I have to share. I don't usually take photos outdoors, and when I do, I am not used to using manual mode (it's typically the middle of the day when it's so bright and I can't see the screen, so I use Av mode). I really wanted to try manual, though, so he was my little model.
I need to remember to do his hair before I take pics...
EDITED TO ADD: I think there might be something wrong with my lens because my focal point was on his face, not the wall. But it looks like it's on the wall. Lately I've been having a hard time getting it to do what I'm asking it to do. Frustrating!! I thought it was me, but now I'm thinking it's the lens. I was just reading about other people having similar issues.
It kind of seems like he should be holding something more than a tiny piece of grass in his hand, but he's not! I still liked it.
Now I need to learn how to meter properly, get the white balance correct, and something else. But I can't remember what it was because I need to go to bed! So, good night!
