    Hi everyone,

    I tried a few shots this evening around sunset of my daughter in the playground. I was trying to use more moderate shutter & ISO for clean shots (Not too fast or high respectively) while she was on swings and roundabouts.

    As such I used f1.4 1/250th ISO800 (Yeah not making focus easy on myself considering the light, movement and shallow depth of field)

    Probably only 20% were keepers, and I thought I'd share a couple. The last one she was not moving fast at all, so the settings were different.
