Day 1

I'm practicing shooting in manual mode on my very simple point and shoot camera. I've got the ISO all the way up to 1600 (my camera's max) I hate all the noise that the picture has, but I'll be using some editing software soon. I think Lightroom will be my choice.

I picked this picture for my first post of the new year because this is the direction our world is moving. It is crazy that she can maneuver her way around the Internet better than I can. I especially love that I was able to snap this quick pick without her even turning to look my way. She was totally engrossed.
Edited using Lightroom 3. I reduced the noise and auto corrected the white balance.

I think i actually prefer the first of the two! Just shows what I (dont) know about photography :) Either way I love the fact that she is so focused as well! Wish I could afford lightroom! I love it. Looking forward to following along!
