Summer Photography Series at 5 Minutes for Mom

5 Minutes for Mom is hosting a Summer Photography Series to help other bloggers learn more about how to take great photos. I signed up for the weekly email alerts so that I can follow along. You can read more about it here.

The focus this week is on getting to know your camera and utilizing Aperture Priority mode. Here's the simplified definition from our hostess Lolli: By controlling the aperture, you can control how much of your photo is in focus (among other things!). If you have a camera with AV or A priority mode, switch to that and try some test shots using different apertures. If your camera does not have AV priority, use the Portrait mode (which looks like a lady’s head profile).

To find out more read her full post here.

We had visitors last week and my mother-in-law asked me to take some portraits of her pampered-pooch, Daffy, so that she could display them in her office. She was a great model ;)

Here are a few of my shots. All were taken with my Nikon D5000 and a 55-300 mm lens, ISO 400, f/5 and 1/200 shutter speed.

I'm enjoying the Summer Photography Series. I hope you'll join in and show us your shots!

Stopping by and following from Me, You, and Creamed Corn ...thank-you for your comment on my haven of rest :o)

This post is so precious and I'm sure you kissed little Daffy's face off (I sure would have with every chance). You're right ...what an absolute perfect model she was!

I'd love to have you follow us at "Creamed Corn" if you'd like!
