In keeping with our photo challenge, here are some photos from the first event I ever covered. It was a birthday party where all the kids got to go horse-back riding! It was a lot of fun, but super hot out (of course). I was using this to get more familiar with my camera, as I didn’t have much experience taking photos of people. Adjusting my exposure and figuring out which aperture was best – all while trying to keep up with fast-moving kids – was great practice. I did get a couple good, portrait-like shots that were very encouraging to me after all my quick fumbling with camera settings!
