Jen, you are the real deal, my friend. I am so glad we met. Thank you for taking the time to share your readers with me!
Now on to the pictures.
As I have now shared several times, improving my photography was one of the main reasons I started this blog. I have always loved taking pictures, but in a point and shoot way. I got my Rebel a couple years ago, and my interest has grown steadily since then. Almost exactly a year ago, my sister-in-law asked me to take photo's of her sweet baby granddaughter in her Halloween costume. I said yes, with the condition that their expectations be very low! That first photo "session" sparked a much deeper interest, and photography has become a pretty big part of my life these days.
My two older boys are gone from home, so that only leaves me with one victim to beg, plead and cajole. Sometimes he's willing, and some times, not so much.
It's easy to take lots and lots of pictures with a digital camera. With this little charmer, my ratio of good to bad photo's seems to be about 1 to 100 or so.
For every one of these.....
I get a LOT of these.....
A few cooperative moments....
Hello? Mama's trying to accomplish something here! I took 38 pictures in this spot and not one was good.
I want to hurt him, but I'm laughing too hard.
