Since I started my blog with one of my more recent photographs, I thought it might be fun to go back to one of my first photos.  This was taken with my new used camera (Canon 10D), completely clueless on all the knobs and dials and with a 28-80mm kit lens that came with it.  My big dreams of being a great photographer all started here, Thanksgiving 2005.
Jersey || Canon EOS 10D/28.0-80.0 mm | 1/10 | f/3.5 | ISO 100 | Handheld
Ha!  Crooked photo and blurry!  At least I had a stellar subject.  This must have been my first attempt at shooting in RAW mode, so I shot program mode with no flash, and was definitely too dark.  At least I've progressed a little bit since then right? 🙂

    My untrained eye only sees an adorable little boy with his uncle’s jersey on in front of a table soon to be filled with family to celebrate Thanksgiving. I agree that you’ve gotten better… but I’ll always love this photo!

    I too just saw how cute the little boy was! Wow, how grown up he already is getting!! I will say I thought the focused subject with the faded background looked good though. I know you’ve learned a ton since then. Just when you thought the sun was gone and couldn’t possibly shine in your eyes and make them water… Ha Ha! You’re great!! 3 years and counting:) yeah!!
