{January} 10 on 10

Since one of my resolutions was to take better photos, I figured it would be nice to take on a photo challenge. I've seen a bunch of monthly challenges that have a daily theme, but I figured I might have trouble keeping up daily. When I saw the simple things 10 on 10 challenge, it sounded totally doable!  On the 10th day of each month post 10 photos that were taken over the course of one day during that month.

So here's my first 10 on 10 challenge.

10 on 10

I'm kind of cheating a little because these pictures are actually from New Year's eve. It was a beautiful day out, so we took full advantage.

These were all taken with my new Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Standard AutoFocus Lens. I'm still trying to get the hang of it and making sure my focal points are right, and the lighting looks off in some of these, but so far I'm really liking the lens. Maybe I should try adjusting my white balance? I've always used auto before and lighting outside has always looked pretty good. If you have any links to any good tutorials, especially for this lens, I'd love to know about them!


  1. Becky all the photos are just wonderful and it looks like you had such a fun family day! My 50mm was my first lens and I loved it! I always use auto white balance (for the most part) myself, but often tweak the WB in post processing. Not sure what program you use for PP but Lightroom is so easy for tweaking WB. Thanks for taking part of the challenge and I can't wait to see your next 10 on 10! Carly

  2. Looks like such a nice family day! Your little girl is too cute! Thanks for sharing your pictures at Carly's blog! I'm having fun with this challenge too.

  3. What great photos!! Moments like these with my family are the best, aren't they? Thanks for sharing them with us!!
