Words cannot express how much I LOVE this picture I took of Natalie on Christmas day. To me, this is the photo of the year! The bright, smiling little face with the perfect glowing Christmas tree unfocused in the background. . . Amazingness!!!
Guess how much Santa loves me? He gave me this beauty. . . my new Nikon D-90! I'm SO excited to learn how to use it!
I took that photo of Natalie with my new camera, and we actually used my cousin's really awesome lens to get that picture in the low lighting with no flash. That's the first thing I want to learn how to master. . . getting really good pictures indoors, with not much natural light but using NO flash. I despise the way the flash looks on indoor shots! Yet when I try to take indoor photos using no flash, 95 percent of the shots turn out blurry. This is especially a problem when I'm photographing my kids, because we all know that kids are constantly moving! So how do you solve the low light/kids moving/wanting no flash quandary? I would love advice!
