This is going to be a great week. My husband, who travels for his job, just got back from his last long trip for a while. It will be great to have him home for more than a couple of days in a row. I’m ready to settle back into our routine and get our lives back to normal. I’m even looking forward to all day college football on Saturdays. When he’s gone, I don’t cook nearly as much so now I can start recipe testing again and baking some fall goodies. All is right with the world.
At the end of August, I decided to upgrade my camera to a Canon 60D. It’s a step up from the Canon Rebel XSi that I had before but still simple enough for an amateur to use but “simple” is a relative term. While I’m not completely starting over, there’s definitely a steep learning curve. I figure the best way to learn how to use my new camera’s bells and whistles is to shoot regularly, and not just the things in my comfort zone. I want to start doing some photo walks around town to practice on different things. My biggest challenge right now is low light situations when a flash isn’t appropriate. Boy it’s a struggle. I have more dark blurry pictures than I can count. Saturday I went to downtown Nolensville TN and took some shots at Three French Hens and The Roost, which are two of the cutest shops in town and I wanted to share a few of them with you. If there are any photographers reading this, I would love some suggestions on how to work with low light, no flash, and no tripod.
