Project 365 Days 1-4

So here I am in the New Year making the very brave decision to really start pushing myself when it comes to photography. It is possibly one of the few hobbies I have really stuck with over the years. I always get teased that I take SO many pictures but then everyone is really pleased that someone has marked the occasion. Granted that usually means I am not in any of the photos but that is another worry really. Hubby bought me a remote and I really need to use it more. So I have decided to join the 365 project over at The Boy and Me. While this project will be a lot about capturing all the small moments and enjoying my son grow and learn I really want to use this project to start turning the dial of the camera and getting out of my comfort zones. Last year I realised flash is not always a bad thing and this year I am hoping to learn a lot more about TV and white balance. So here goes...





Day 1: A New Year walk with the Nonni at Borghetto in Italy.
Day 2: Puzzles with Nonna.
Day 3: Always got lots of cuddles for Nonna. We stopped for lunch at Rifugio Malga Malera during a walk from San Giorgio when we went in search of snow.
Day 4: My wee man has discovered the joys of Pandoro! A famous Italian dessert at Christmas time. The excitement on his face when we bring it out is indescribable. the best bit of course is adding the sugar and shaking it up in the bag and then dipping your finger onto the top when it's opened.

    1. I agree I'm not into the dried fruit! Yep I used natural light...hiked up the ISO and hence the blur. I need to work on using light and white balance! Lots to learn.
