DJ and I decided these were the two we liked of all the pictures I took today. I discovered the joys of ISO settings this morning while playing with my camera using my sleeping cat as a subject. Between that and shutter speed, I can adjust the pictures nicely without a flash. ISO is tricky though as it can make a picture too grainy if set to high. Clearly that was not a problem in these pictures.
Also, I have taken my camera off auto-focus. I have been doing that when I take stills, but realized I have been lazy of of late. I think it really made a difference today as I could make sure the focus was right where I wanted it to be.
