I am new to photgraphy and love it but it doesn't seem to love me. I have taken a few local classes on exposure, compensation and a few other basic things and it seems all peachy keen on paper but my ability to apply is not so good! I have a Nikon d90 and a 50mm f1.8 and a speedlight 600. But I have been unsucessful as of now to get a crisp picture. I shoot indoors 99% of the time and only of my kids. My goal is to capture my children's childhood. I have a daughter with bright blue eyes and you'd never know from my pics! I don't do any post processing yet, I want to master the camera first. I shoot on s,m, and A but I am ever so tempted to shoot in Auto! Here is an example of my constant struggle. I think shutter speed is a huge issue with my kids who never sit still and I have my white balance on auto which I am not sure if I should. I am totally looking to learn so don't be nice, I have thick skin.
