Photographic Challenge #41 - Polka Dots

Polka dots are so fun. Thanks Kristie and Melissa for this week's challenge. I can't wait to see what you do next. Great pictures you two.
I had to dig into my archives to find some polka dots since my granddaughter doesn't live close. Here is my little polka dot girl.

I threw in this other photo just to make you all laugh at her sharing her chips. Enjoy!

Kristen Duke's "Say No To Auto" Revised

I have really enjoyed the first edition of her e-book. It has helped me understand how the manual settings really work. I always wondered how to get the shadow of of people's faces. Lighting and settings are so important. This e-book really is a must have for those of us who are novices and trying to learn. I'm glad I got mine however I still need to practice. That's the fun of Photography . . . always learning, always experimenting. Check out Kristen's blog here.
