    Ooh, that is a great piture. Her teeth freak me out though, but that isnt your fault. How do you decide which exposure setting to use? I see you used aperture priority there? Just curious if that is what you like best or if it was best for that particular shot?

    My guess is that I shoot aperture priority 95% of the time. My main concern is getting all of what I want in in focus and since the aperture controls the DOF, I want to be able to control that directly.

    Thanks. I will try and use that setting a lot next time I practice... which will be today! My friend wants me to take pictures of her three month old baby, I'm kinda nervous cause she is relying on me to get good ones as the baby will be christened this weekend! Any tips for me? The lighting in her house is excellent so they may turn out better than you see when I take them at mine.
