I've really been buckling down on trying to use my DSLR in manual mode. When we researched what camera to buy, I knew I didn't want to buy an entry level one hearing that others grew out of theirs so we went with the Canon EOS 60d. I love it. I wish I had all the time in the world to take a photography classes, read tutorials and practice but free time comes few and far between. Most nights I don't get home until 7p and the natural lighting stinks and I want to eat ice cream on the couch :-). My girlfriend Mary just had her 2nd baby boy about a month ago and I volunteered to take some photos of him to help my practice. My big sis and I have already planned a few baby shoots when my niece arrives in October. Hoping I can get my hands on a few more babies before then to practice! I am no professional, nor do I plan on it, just for fun!
I just had to share some pictures of sweet baby Ty (total photo dump)

I cannot tell you how precious it is to pose a newborn and try to soothe him back to sleep. Ty was the most well behaved baby I've ever been around. I was with him for 8 hours the whole day (not all picture taking) and I never heard him cry. He slept and cooed and sat quietly in his bouncer. God please give me babies like him!
Also, I wanted to mention the beautiful sign with Ty's name on it. Mary's sister makes custom signs from salvaged wood, they are incredible. Check out her etsy shop, Anchor and Dasiy.
