How is your week going so far? It's been a long COUPLE weeks around here while my husband, Kris, has been in Korea for military training. To be honest, we get a little lonely here without him. To pass the time, I practiced my photography skills while Luna practiced a new skill of her own: walking!
Kris is finally back so we packed a picnic and drove a mile down the road to Weymouth Center for the day. While we were there, I wanted to snap a few photos of Kris and Lu. By the time I was done, I had more than a few ... I had a few HUNDRED! Whoops! Thankfully, Kris was a trooper and didn't complain once :) I really needed the practice!
Some photos were good, some were bad. Some were blurry, ugh! But some were JUST. PLAIN. PRICELESS.
Then there were a few photos that were ALMOST THERE. Like this next one ... I love almost everything about it except the color looks off to me. It doesn't have that clear, super-vibrant look that some of the other photos have:
Not sure what I mean? Take a look at these next two photos. They were shot almost back-to-back. But the second picture is so much more vibrant! Why is that?! Someone please tell me!
Here are a couple examples of photos that I really love but aren't crystal clear. See what I mean?
All in all, I think I kept about 50 out of 250 photos. That's a 1/5 ratio which sounds pretty low. But I'm still learning so I'll take it :) Also, I forgot to mention that I changed my lens today. Before, I was using a 25 mm lens - today I switched to the 50 mm. I really enjoyed working with the longer lens! It meant that I didn't have to stand so close. I could give Kris and Luna some space to do their own thing while I shot from further back.
Finally, it was time to head home:
Are you planning any upcoming photo shoots? If so, how are you preparing? Have you been practicing on the side? I want to hear everything!
Until next time,
