Jonas: Embracing the gifts given by fall.
Joshua: Surrounded by hues of autumn.
Jessica: An inquisitive look.
Thank you Jodi for hosting this series.
While Jessica's birthday was a success, I am devastated that it ended with a crash - literally. My camera fell and my lens (as in my favorite, I don't use any other lens) broke. I took it into the shop immediately and was even more heart broken at the price tag to fix it and the six weeks it will be gone. I've decided to experiment and embrace with what I do have in my camera bag. My 50mm was quite dusty after not being used for so long and it is a nice change (not really, but I'll just say it is) to switch up the view point of my photos.
As an anniversary gift, in addition to fixing my lens, Jon surprised me with a flash. I'm pretty excited because I have never ventured down this road. While I prefer natural light in photography, I know that at times a flash is necessary and I would like to learn those techniques.
Do you have any tips for using a flash? I would love to hear them!
