These were the first photos I took with my DSLR, and I can’t wait to take more now that I’ve been refreshing my knowledge on shutter speed and aperture. I love how peonies become so huge once they open up. They are a fluffy flower, no doubt about it.
I took these pictures using flash, as I hadn’t had a chance to play around yet. More recently I did some series with my little kitten muse to test out light and speed.
I overexposed a bit, but I like the look. Then I really began to document the lighting near the window in my apartment. You’ll notice the increase in light as the pictures progress.
He’s such a darling little muse that I just had to take a few more. I love the delicate cat hairs around their ears!
Of course, right now he is pawing at the pile of files I am working through. Better go and try to tame the beast!
