My family and I spent the 4th of July week in South Carolina. We spent a few days in Charleston and a few days in Folly Beach. On our looooong drive home (18 hours), we stopped at the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina.
About a week before leaving, my mom and I took a photography class with the amazing Donna Boucher. We learned so much and were really excited to apply our newly-learned skills to our vacation pictures. Right after the class we went straight to the Camera Company where I got my new 50 f/1.8 lens that I absolutely love. I am proud to say that I shot 99% of my vacation pictures on Manual mode.
