We're Juicers!


Ever since I read MckMama's post about her husband's new addiction to juicing, I haven't been able to quit thinking about it.

And when I mentioned my new juicing fantasy, Amy piped up and told me she had a juicer just sitting in her cabinet.

She brought it to playgroup on Tuesday and we have made our own juice everyday since!

So far our favorite is Carrot, Kiwi, and Apple!

Last night Josie asked for a treat after dinner and when I asked what she wanted she she yelled, "CARROT JUICE!!"

Of course we happily obliged to her request!

So, anyone have any juice combos they would like to share?

Yep! White balance is completely separate from any of the other settings on your camera :)

I don't know what mode you're shooting in...I'm assuming if you like to set your aperture, you're shooting in aperture priority (Av)?? If you're serious about getting really good pictures, I would suggest shooting in manual. That lets you set both the aperture and the shutter speed--when you're in manual, you can pick the aperture first, then hold down your shutter button about halfway and look through your viewfinder. You'll see a set of numbers that goes from -2 {..} -1 {..} 0 {..} +1 {..} +2 (usually it doesn't actually say '0' but it's a symbol). That sets your exposure...so once your aperture is set, you'll see the line underneath that set of numbers flashing. Move your shutter speed until it gets under the 0--that's going to give you the correct exposure. I hope that's not too confusing!

If it is, you'll still get good pictures shooting through aperture priority mode. Basically, the smaller your aperture number, the blurrier the background will be and vice versa.

Back to white balance--on your camera, next to the screen--there's a button that has 'WB' next to it (mine also has a blue symbol above it but that's something different)...when you're ready to take a picture, click on that WB button...there's auto, daylight, shade, cloudy, tungsten light, white flourescent light, flash and custom. Just set it to whatever situation you're in and you're good to go! It took me a little while to get used to it...but if you just play around with it, you'll start seeing the difference!

Sorry for the novel...I hope that's helpful!
