Hourray, a sunny day! A perfect time to try out the camera on my new phone. It’s nice to have an alternative for when I don’t feel like carrying my DSLR around (or can’t).

We started making our biomes today. The kids seemed to have a lot of fun organizing and planting their ecosystems. We only have one ecosystem that has consumers in it (the rest only have producers), but hopefully, we’ll be adding more next week!

This month’s focus was auto-focus. I felt that it was good for when I had moving subjects, but that when my subjects were still, I much preferred manual focus. I suppose that it’s a good thing, but I felt like I was cheating whenever I switched over to manual. I’m not sure how much I improved – if at all – on focusing with auto-focus!

March’s focus is ISO. I’ve realized that I’ve depended so much on auto ISO – I usually remember to alter shutter speed and depth of field, but not ISO. I’ve also realized that I’m not personally a fan of grainy pictures! Hopefully, this focus will help me improve this part of my photography.
