Saturday in the park

Yesterday I recruited our friends for my first outside photo shoot with a new camera. Although it was a little bit dark already (at 3 PM it’s already getting dark, so annoying), I managed to snatch a few pretty shots.

This is what I learned as a new SLR owner during this packed with useful experience shoot:

1) Don’t be a smartass: stick to the pre-programmed settings and you’ll be golden

2) Put everybody against a contrasting background

3) If the model is cute – it sure helps a lot!

4) Use continuous shooting mode like there is no tomorrow

5) Best models are children and adults when they act silly

6) And at the end there is always Photoshop
