As you can tell from the blog pic, we have new family portraits. They were very spur of the moment -- I wasn't planning on looking like that for my posterity. But I had packed my minitripod for this very purpose: we had a little time on our hands and some great backgrounds to work with. It was right before we went to the fair -- so no I hadn't done my hair -- I think I just took it out of the ponytail for the actual pics. And many people have asked and/or commented about my BW/green shots ~ my camera just has a setting where you can choose only one color to show up. It's nearly my favorite thing about the whole camera! Anyway I took LOTS of shots. The posed ones didn't work out nearly so well (especially of just D&I -- yuck! I'm not posting those!!) as it was all self-photography with a timer . . . but when I was behind the camera and just let the kids do as they willed -- that's when I thought it worked out pretty well.
p.s. forgive the plethora of shots, but in my blog book I want each kid to have their own page with about 5-6 shots each, so just bear with me, please!!
p.p.s. I am working on learning photoshop so I could layer them all together before posting. You'll know when I've reached that point.
p.p.p.s. I love photography! I wish I would have majored in that at Ricks!! I feel I'm getting better as I keep practicing . . . yet I desperately need more help in portraiture!
