Photography as Yoga Pants

A blog friend, Sara @ Running from the Law has been hosting an *awesome* series called Photography for Moms, and today I'm over there posting about getting out of auto and into Av mode.

Sara and I have been following each other's blogs for quite some time, and she and I are both big fans of Av mode when we're just hanging out at home taking photos of our kids. On today's post, Sara said "[AV Mode is] quick and easy and comfortable, like a really expensive pair of yoga pants - fancier than normal, but still not full-on getting dressed and perfect to wear around the house."

YES. I totally agree.

If you have a dslr camera, but are shooting in auto (the green box) most of the time, and haven't been ending up with the kind of photos you were hoping for when you purchased a dslr, please go read this post.

On the other hand, if you're trying to shoot in manual 100% of the time and are so frustrated that you're just not picking up your camera at all...please go read this post!

'Cause I'm a firm believer that there's a time and a place for yoga pants and Av mode alike!


  1. Loved your post this's SO helpful for tons of mamas! :)

  2. Also...You should totally post more of your photoshoots on your blog...I love your work!! :)

  3. Loved your post and I whole heartedly agree that there is a time and place for Av mode!

  4. Your post was AWESOME. I am guilty of shooting in Auto, but I will defintiely be making the switch to Av now!
