photography practice – playing around with shutter speed

So my lesson on shutter speed also included some tips on focusing and movement. We have a Nikon camera, so these tips are Nikon specific. For activities like the ones in my Girls TALK program (movement in an orderly fashion), the setting should be d9. For movement like soccer games, the setting should be d21. For unpredictable movement, like birds flying, the setting should be d39 or higher.

Today we got yet another round of wintery weather…. Good Lord, when will it all end???? Yesterday it was sunny and in the 70s! But, we were home early and the birds were searching for food in the back yard. I tiptoed out and got these pics. What do you think? Getting better, huh?
