Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

Family Holiday Photos

Holiday family photos are not easy to shoot but such a beautiful moment when they turn out perfect.

Checking the light, the location, exposure (especially shutter speed), arranging a natural pose, then evoking some emotion are the basic steps to putting together a memorable shot.

Pro Tip: High ISO is fine with top cameras like the D4s, it keeps the shutter speed up to 1/250, critical when shooting kids, etc.
