This is what having a snow day is all about! Not going outside and getting all cold, noooooo......! But staying in my jammies ALL DAY and cuddling with my monkeys and shooting with my super fun toys. (d3 + 85 1.4 combo switched up with the 14-24 2.8) What's not to love about that scenario?
Of course they were more than game to play, and were so excited for Mommy to not have to work and to actually say yes to jumping on my bed!
I was working though, just a little. I had learned a while back from Mike Colon about how he programs his back auto focus button to do all of the focus and his shutter release is only that, for the shutter. Makes total sense to me NOW, back then I just didn't grasp the concept for some reason but now it is an amazing new way to shoot and hold focus and not lose the moment at all. So of course I want to get as much shooting in doing this as possible while also working a brand new camera body. There are a lot of similarities to the D200 (my main work horses last year) and the D3 but there are just enough differences where I want to know my gear like the back of my hand. Last year I had it down, and could switch stuff up intuitively without really even thinking about it.
So I will be a shooting fool, as much as I can do whenever, where ever WHO ever! Be prepared for it!
On a side note- last night's PUG meeting at Greg Weed's house in Monroe was outstanding! Greg & his wife Dana were such gracious hosts, provided such delicious food and we had a ton of new people in attendance!
