I Clicked it up a Notch "September"

I tried a lot of new things with my photography this month.  I really stepped out of my comfort zone with this one.  I love the results and this ended up being my very first Flickr photo that made the Explore page!

Coffee anyone?

September Top 5 Quarterly Link Up

1. This is a photo I took while I was trying out the "Golden hour" for the first time! Can I just say that I LOVE the golden hour!

2. I love this photo of my daughter. She is always running so it was nice to capture her standing still for a brief moment!

3. I live in Minnesota, so getting a good Halloween picture on Halloween is almost impossible. The kids are always bundled in winter coats by then. I was hoping the sun would have been out for this one but you've gotta make do with what you have!

4. I rarely use my camera in doors because my house has terrible lighting and my camera doesn't have the best ISO performance. However, I couldn't resist this sweet father-daughter moment!

5. I just got a new lens last week, a Tokina 100mm 2.8 macro. I wanted to take it out try some portraits with it. I love the bokeh I get with it compared to my only other lens, a 35mm!
