Home Love

85mm, f/1.4, ISO 1600, 1/2500

Today, I wanted to share a few photos from a recent trip back home along with my camera settings. I love this dangling rosemary that my Mom planted on her patio along with the aged pot. This was shot right at dusk about 30 minutes before sun set.

This is a photograph of my little sister – some might say younger sister, but since she is both younger and little, I prefer little sister. Most of my editing involves simple use of the curve tool and the burn tool.

Even though I shoot 99% manual, I usually don’t spend too much time thinking about my camera settings when I am taking a photograph. I select my desire aperture and then roll my ISO and shutter speed until my in camera meter is on target, which is usually exposed for a half stop over because I love bright pictures. When I put my camera down, I usually start shooting with whatever settings I had last – TERRIBLE habit that I need to get better at!

One thing that I realized when putting in my .exif data into this post is that I am often using a very high ISO which requires me to use a fast shutter speed. In a perfect world, I like to keep my ISO as low as possible, for better clarity.

Anyway, just a few photos that I wanted to share because I love visiting home to re-charge the batteries and these just remind me of the time spent at such a loving place. Plus, I had to give my Mom’s new milk bottles a little love because they are pretty much the neatest thing around!
