Photography fun

Two weekends ago I attended Camp Mamarazzi, a photography workshop geared towards moms who want to learn how to capture great pictures of their children. I purchased my first DSLR camera a couple of months ago for this express purpose but I hadn't really gotten very far in learning how to use the camera on any other setting than automatic. Thanks to Andrea's tips and instructions, I've been able to shoot on manual and I'm really liking the results. She even showed me how to use the awesome speed light that Captain Husband got me for my birthday, which produces a really nice, natural looking light in low-light situations. Here's one of my first attempts with the speed light:

It's a good thing Sammy's still mostly immobile at this point--I'm not quite ready to take photos of objects in motion just yet, but I'm working on it. Fortunately for me Sammy's a willing model.
