Practice = annoyed kids

The last few days I've been working on the basics. I've been working on shooting manual (again... I got lazy and stopped) and I'm getting pretty confident in getting a decent exposure that way. (read... decent, not perfect) I've also been practicing getting a good focus. I want nice crisp eyes. Not getting there just yet. And I think I need new victims to practice on.

There is road construction a block from our house. We HAD to go check it out. The boys were able to tell me the name of every machine and what it did.

My friend Megan is due with her baby boy any day now and she graciously let me photograph her beautiful belly! Here are a few of my favorites.

Timing is everything

I'm still trying to get a shot of Wyatt's cute toothless, chubby cheeked grin. So today when he woke from his nap in a happy mood I grabbed my camera. I captured this instead.... the look he gets as he is farting. Perfect timing!

I love the police car on his cute (but stinky) behind!

Spray Park

I'm learning Photoshop. These photos, unlike my previous ones have been enhanced (hopefully for the better) I even took out a foot in the one with Eliza in the sand and a water drop on Matthew's face. It's not perfect, but it's a start.

Craft Day

I got the chance today to play with my camera at craft day. The kids had fun and I took pictures while dodging water guns AND holding my baby. You learn how to multitask when you're a mom!

4th of July

It was a rainy beginning to our 4th of July. I took the boys out to splash in puddles and take pictures this morning.

Wyatt is 3 months old today!

Wyatt is 3 months old today. He is getting big way to fast. I wanted to get some shots of his cute, chubby cheeked smile, but he was not very smiley today. So, I took some with my new 50mm f/1.8 lens while he slept. He looks so peaceful.

New Journey

Yesterday I got my new camera! A Canon 50D and as Will, my 4-1/2 year old son, stated it is "awesome". The purpose of this blog is not to write. I'm not a good writer, thought I know I can become a good photographer. My goal is to post a picture (or two) a day. Not just any picture, but picture with a soul. A picture that can be stared at for hours. One worthy to be hung on the wall. I hope that though this practice I can call myself a photographer. A photographer capturing life's simple moments.
