Day 166 – 169 – Playing catch up again

Ok, I really don’t mean to let all the days go by without posting, but at the end of the day, I’ve just been so exhausted, I haven’t had a chance to upload or edit anything.  So, here are my photos.  I will make more of an effort to keep it up on a daily basis.  I am loving my new nikon 610 and tamron lens.  Definitely more capability than my old nikon d40x, although, I still take pictures with that camera also.  My goal for this weekend is to look into some creative exercises or breakout sessions on clicking moms.  I need to get out of this rut and see some improvement.

Day 143 – Babies and Grandma

I took a lot of great pictures today.  But I’m so irritated that the flash isn’t working, because they were still so dark.  And the aperture wasn’t set correctly, so a lot of pics were out of focus.  Either the grandparent is out of focus, or the dog is out of focus.  So frustrating. But I’m learning.  And there’s an example of a belly shot that is so freaking cute, so I tried that with Ariya..but she was so wiggly, so that didn’t work out.  But here are a few cute pictures for today.

Day 142 – Puppy and Grandparents

In a rut yet again.  I need to look into some creative exercises, because taking pictures of the baby and the animals are starting to get old.  Well…taking pictures of my daughter will never get old, but still.  I need to do something interesting.  Anyway, I’m trying to figure out how these presets work, trying to improve my editing skills.  here are a few pics of Charlie, and Ariya with her grandparents.
