There are lots of goals I have set for myself this year. Some are business related, some personal. One that I am working on to make me a better photographer is back button focus. If you don’t know about this, it is using a button in the back of your camera to focus giving you more control over your focal points. To read more about it, here is an article on back button focusing. I absolutely LOVE it and really feel like it is taking my photography to another level. Another thing I am working on mastering, is shooting with the aperture at 1.2. 1.2 has many distinct advantages. It is the widest aperture and will allow the most light into the camera, so is ideal for tricky lighting situations. But it is a finicky focal length and if you are not very careful you will find that you have only focused on one small point in the photo and the rest is blurred. So I am practicing this with two of my favorite subjects…Morgan and Truman! Here are some photos from our shoot in the back yard the other night…all of these are at 1.2…love the look!

Morgan & Truman…Love these kids!
Morgan says this is what I always look like, all the time! 🙂
These two are so fun…when they get along! 🙂
And one last thing to leave you with…I hear all the time how much Morgan and I look exactly alike, but she is 1000 time more gorgeous and stylish than I will ever be…for proof, this is me at the same age…
