Okay so I am having a ball with my camera. I keep wanting to call it new, but how many months can you have something before you have to drop that adjective? hehehe I mean it still is quite new to me, because the camera has so many doohiggies and such that I have yet to learn, so I am still a complete novice to all of its bells and whistles.
The first thing that I am figuring out is what I love to see through my lense. I am most definitely a "people picture" person. I cracked myself with that three P line, in fact, had to reread it to see if it made sense in word as it did in my mind. You get what I mean, right?
Anyway, right now I feel so blessed to have children of my own to photograph. I am learning that I love up close and personal shots, and I am personally quite taken with brilliant colors, none of these black and whites for me (yet). I'm sure, like everything else in my life, I will find that my passions change and evolve.
Den bought me a Photoshop program for Christmas, and I thought that I wouldn't really use it or that I needed it, and now I am regretting taking it back. What was I thinking? *shaking my head at myself* There is so many fun things you can do with pictures with that program.
For now, I will enjoy the simplicity of my raw and mostly untouched photos. Yes, I have cropped them from time to time, however I don't want to get use to having to crop a pic in order to get a dramatic photo. First of all, you lose resolution when you resize it. Second, I want to get used to capturing that moment accurately.
So here goes a few photos that I took today at the park with my Littles. Oh what fun! Picasa 3 (my current photo program that is a free download) has a collage technique. I love it! So enjoy a few of my faves from today's outing........
This is a collage of the day Boaz turned 21 months, (today). I think I may make this an 8X10.
I told them we were done for a bit and of course Roman was ready to jump off the bench! Boaz really wanted to join him but didnt have the same confidence in his ability, but boy did he admire his 4 year old brother!
These pictures started off with my Littles facing me on the bench. Boaz, again, grew weary of me with my camera and turned around. Which gave Roman the same idea. I try not to be too posey with the boys, but try to capture the "REAL" them. Just trying to follow them as they are just boys being boys...
