Project 365 - Day 186. Having Fun! | Racine Event Photography

Ok...I must admit that I'm not great at taking photos of my family when we go to events because, as I describe it to my hubby, I have trouble actually taking photos while still being in the moment.   I don't have a point and shoot camera so even my version of snapshots are RAW images shot in Manual Mode.  I have to think about the light and my settings every time I press that shutter (except for my occasional iPhone shots!).  

This weekend (with the exception of the fireworks), I've taken my "old" camera.   It's a DSLR (a Nikon D70) and I was always very happy with it.  It's not as fancy or as high quality as my D700 but I recommend it to people all the's a GREAT camera!  I consider it my "back up" now though and rarely use it but because we were going on the boat the other day and then to a busy parade today, I opted to go for it.  I also have a less high quality but very versatile lens on it which make it easier for on the go.  Well, I really loved using it again.  There's something about it to me that I actually like more and I'm going to have to figure out exactly what that is but regardless I found myself having fun taking these pictures AND staying in the moment!   You may just be seeing more from this camera on 365....
