I want to be a photographer. Not so badly that I hire a babysitter to go out and practice… Not so much that I carry my camera every where so that I can practice taking amazing pictures… But, since I wanted to take blow-up-able pictures of Ella (and other stuff), Jeff got me a Canon just over two years ago. I love it. And early on, I could take time to sit around and play with it.
Now, finding moments to “play” with it are much harder. With two kids to keep alive I don’t get as many “good” shots as I’d like.
But, I’ve gotten a few that I’m extra proud of…
Like this one from November 27, 2011:
Sure, it isn’t totally in focus (taken on automatic), but at least I got them in action. And do you see Ella’s curls?
Or this one taken the next day:
Seriously – that might be one of my favorites. And I was manually focusing… blew my own mind.
Since having Joe…
How about this…
Seriously – I couldn’t have planned that if I tried.
This past Spring I nailed this shot thanks to an old lady squatting behind me…
And most recently this one:
It was on automatic, but I managed to get a fantastic picture of both of my kids – something that this blog post has proven since I have so few of both of them where they are in focus, not moving, looking at the camera, etc.
For Christmas this year, Jeff has given me lessons with my camera. I need to sign up for the class… it is in February!
And then this popped up on my facebook page (thanks to Jen Jacobowitz):
So I’m participating. I haven’t taken today’s photo, “A Space In Your House”… not sure what space to take a picture of and Jen has already posted one of her sofa.
Here is my “Fresh” (01/06/14):
And here is my “Cold” (01/07/14):
I love taking pictures and hope that I get time to perfect my hobby this year.
