Vickey’s son Bert turned one last week. He’s such a cutie – there is such pleasure in seeing children of my friends – who knew we could all become such competent parents?
Vickey asked me to take photos at the party which I was happy to do, I always like hiding a little bit behind a camera especially at a party where I don’t know very many people. Vickey has a nicer camera than mine and she has wider lenses, so I used hers. My camera is perfectly serviceable but it is more than 5 years old and I’m reluctant to replace it because it’s still working fine and I’m loathe to spend the money – her camera has a million more buttons and settings and so many more focus points, I can get a little overwhelmed. I think I should have dropped the ISO down to 400 and fully opened the aperture. You lose a little more control in having the photo in focus, but in return you get less noisy photos and better bokah.
