Birthday Party

Hard to believe it's been 13 months since I've purposefully taken pictures of people. I am definitely a bit rusty, but it felt good to get behind the camera, really focus on my technique and think about the results while I was doing it.

That attitude wasn't present went I did all my shooting while on vacation in Europe, but I suppose that's how it should be. I want to work more in the portrait realm, so this was good practice and a welcome change from all the landscape and history pictures I've been editing.

I have to be honest and say using Nikon's 50 mm prime lens almost feels like cheating. You still have to know what you're doing with it, but I'm far from a professional and I think I get semi-pro results. I need to make better use the lens, hone in on a style and polish my craft.
