Easter Egg Hunt (on Mother’s Day)

Taken:  May 8, 2011 (okay camera says May 7, but I know for a FACT that it was on Mother’s Day)

We had my mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law over for Mother’s Day lunch.  We also never got around to the Easter Egg Hunt, so we did it that day to have GiGi and ‘Great GreatGramma’ enjoy seeing the kids hunt for eggs.  (By the way, Great Grandma is only one great, but Charlotte has added a second great, so we go with it.   I like to think she’s just saying that’s my really awesome great grandma.)

These were also taken with my 85mm, but on aperture priority.  I figured the kids would be moving really fast (I was right) and I didn’t want to fiddle with my settings as they moved from shade to sun.  What I forgot to do was change my metering mode to matrix, instead of using spot so that my camera would pick a more reasonable setting for the entire scene.  The other thing I need to learn on my camera is own to do exposure lock which would help when using aperture mode.
