Especially for momtographers with young children who don’t always last until that beautiful “golden hour,” overcast days are our best friend. In fact, finding the right light is a big deal. It’s an even bigger deal when our available light is less than ideal.
If you’ve been following our “Getting to Know Your Camera” series, then you’ve already been exploring two of three components of the “Exposure Triangle.” You’ll recall that aperture measures how wide the opening is that allows light into the camera; shutter speed then measures how long the shutter stays open to allow light in.

Are you craving some good old-fashioned family fun? Well pack up the video games, turn off the TV and look no further than your backyard. As the weather warms up, so does the desire to be outside. Family game night is a wonderful tradition to have with your kids and one that they will remember as they grow up and have their own little broods. It is a wonderful opportunity to build and connect with one another without the distractions of our technology-centred world. These nights can help kids learn important social skills as well, like problem solving, taking turns and the importance of learning how to win and lose appropriately (think: no temper tantrums because big brother won the game and not them). Since the weather is getting nicer, why don’t you consider moving your game night outside?
