Family Photos (on a budget)...
I love photography...but I have no idea what I am doing. I don't have the patience to read books and when I try to get "technical" it doesn't work out so well. I know what I want the outcome of my shots to be, now I just have to figure out how to make it happen.
This year, I decided to try to take our family photos myself - by use of tri-pod and timer on my camera. I definitely got my workout running back and forth to set up the shot...then running back to be in the shot....then running back to see if it turned out. It actually was crazy and lots of fun!
On a side-note...if you bribe your 2 1/2 year old to pose nicely for the photos, make sure you get your information correct. We told him that if he was a good boy an cooperated, that we would take him to see Wow-Wow Wubzy, who was making an appearance at a local store. Well, I kind of just assumed that the commercial said Saturday...well, it was Friday and there was no Wubzy to be seen. I still feel like a bad Mommy! Has this ever happened to you?
Here are some of my faves...what do you think?
My husband told me to pick a hobby and stick with it. For a while I was trying too many things and was frustrated because I wasn't good at any of them. I really enjoy photography, so this is one thing I will stick with...then we will see what is next.
