OK, let's begin with fireworks. We've all seen fireworks shots that blow these away, but I'm sharing just a couple because I took them with my new camera, and I was amazed at its ability to shoot at such a high ISO. Since we didn't go to a big fireworks show, I didn't want to be the dork with a tripod on my driveway. I handheld these shots, and they were taken between an 8,000-12,800 ISO. No noise reduction in post. I was just walking around aiming at the sky. (I'm not knocking tripods, by the way. If we went to a big fireworks production, I would have totally taken my tripod!) :-)
We've also been doing a bit of this...
And a LOT of this.
Are you watching the light changing in these photos? (all taken at the same game) Yes, that happens when double headers last from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. It gets dark.
And then there was the photo session that never got blogged (aka 'the photo session where you'd swear I'd never used a camera before in my life...') Anything I could have done wrong technically, I did! Geez.
Don't blink!! You might miss this rare sighting by brother #2... everyone wave hi to Drew's back! :-)
The whole point of this little trip to the park was for Livia to model the new headband I made her. Stay tuned for a headband re-do.
I have posted (and subsequently deleted) a million more photos for this post, but I'm guessing you're experiencing a bit of an overload. So I will end here. Hope you all have a wonderful week! xo
