I always mean to participate in weekly – You Capture. Some weeks I just don’t pick up my camera… (which is why I don’t post any here very often) But this week’s assignment was Easter / Pastels. And well… my kids had matching outfits. Of course there are pictures!
My kids prior to any sugar! She likes silly poses and he likes to imitate her! 🙂
And because I assumed my camera was in manual mode, I’m sharing this picture from my sister-in-law’s camera.
It’s been a while since I participated, but I got outside for my Photography class this weekend and thought these pictures definitely go with the this week’s theme of You Capture – Cold.
I am taking a photography class through Community Ed to learn to use our digital SLR. It is 3 weeks long and so far the first session was great. I have an idea now how I can maybe go about taking some pictures using natural light without my flash going off!
Our assignment for the first week is to take a portrait at a window. This would be a lot easier if my subjects would sit still! I am going to attempt more tomorrow, but here is my favorite. Note though that I adjusted the color on this as I had the white balance set wrong and he was sort of a shade of blue in the original.
All my Photography Class assignments here.
Finally getting around to getting pictures off the camera.
And I missed a couple weeks, but I love the challenge of using my camera to get different things. This week’s theme. In The Kitchen. Where we spend most of our time AND where Charlie started “traveling” to this week!
I’ve been sitting on the sidelines watching the “You Capture” challenge for a while… Finally decided I should participate.
Here is my first week: Black & White
Love the seriousness of my little ones’ faces.
Maria’s 3 year portraits and Charlie’s 3 month. Seems so strange that it’s easier to get a cute picture of a 3 month old than a 3 year old!
Chad and I are finally seriously getting in the Flickr game and upgrading to a Pro Account!! I uploaded some pictures tonight!
More Pictures here.
We had an appointment this morning with the photographer. We were attempting a family portrait and Maria’s 18 month pictures (a little early to beat the Christmas rush).
I made the appointment for 9 a.m., so we’d be first in and Maria wouldn’t be tired. But still, we didn’t get much. Maria was not ready to sit still or pose. Not even with Chad and I. So the time I spent hunting for outfits for all of us was to no avail. We were able to get a few of Maria, and she will be going solo on the Christmas cards this year. Definitely cute, but just frustrating when we had hopes for a family picture.
No, not my blog. Our home PC! Yes, we did it. Last year (2006) our Christmas present to ourselves was a video camera in April (2007)! This year (Christmas 2007) we got a computer in January (2008).
It looks sweet! Chad has it all set up. I have only touched the keyboard briefly and only to keep Maria from pushing every button! Busy busy, because she’s been sick.
My question to all of you out there is photo editing software! Yes, I am upgrading from the Olympus stuff that came with our first digital camera, because we’re finally going to have enough memory to handle something new!
We received Pinnacle as a Christmas gift for our video editing (because we stopped using the video camera, because we couldn’t edit it!) But I’ve never known anyone that’s used it for photos? (As I type, I realize I never asked my brother!). But I’ve heard lots of good things about Photoshop, so wondering if we should get that, and Amazon has it on sale right now, plus a rebate, so need to act quickly!
