These are some practice pictures of my daughter.
I had the privilege of taking some first communion pictures for a friend a few weeks ago. It was a lot of fun and I actually used my off camera flash. I was a little nervous, but I won’t learn unless I practice. Here are a few of my favorite images.
I got to practice on a very precious baby girl and her big brothers. I had a lot of fun, but it was a lot of work. I learned a lot and looking forward to do doing it again soon. Here are a few of my favorites.
I figured out how to create a watermark using Photoshop Elements so I had some fun today. I also learned how to download fonts to my mac and PSE, which gives me a ton more options. I went to http://www.dafont.com and they had tons of great fonts and they were very easy to download.
Here’s Nate trying out his new binoculars at the Riparian Preserve. He was distracted so I was able to get some shots of him. He didn’t complain too much. 🙂
I was experimenting with macro shots last night. I read an article about turning your 50mm lens around and using as a macro lens and, of course, I had to give it a try. Here’s my first attempt. It was awkward at first because I had to manually focus and hold the lens on. I am fascinated by macro photography, but can’t afford a new lens. This might be a great alternative. I’ve also learned that you can get an adapter to hold the lens on the camera, which would be cheaper than a macro lens. Here is a picture of a lantana plant in our backyard.
My son’s third grade class did a wax museum on famous Americans today and my son was Charles Schulz. I was able to take a break from my conferences to go see him in action. He did excellent and made me proud. Here is a picture of him in his costume. The image with Snoopy was his prop. In order for him to talk, someone had to touch it.
