A Challenge...

Like I don't have enough to do already! I received a challenge from a dear friend of mine, Gina, who suggested for this week I shoot only in AV mode...no auto focus, no flash...just trying to find the right light and the ability to stay very still and hoping the subjects do as well.

While I have to admit I thought she was crazy for attempting to challenge me with something I thought that maybe it was a good idea. I have several friends that read this blog that are REALLY, REALLY, REALLY good at photography...so each week, I'll accept a new challenge.

Think of some ladies.

A few of today's shots during our play doh fun time...

I really like this shot of Peanut below...

Another rather cool shot...I love it...

Not really sure what was going on here:

And lastly...the waiting for Vegas to come home crew...

So, from this point on...until like sometime this weekend I'll be shooting with the Nifty 50 in AV mode...bare with the pictures!

And, for all you really good photographers...suggestions on how to make the photos above (or the ones yet to take) better...and other ideas for challenges like next week would be fabulous!
