I got my husband football tickets for this weekend. We had a blast but his team lost. Anyways, I got some great pictures and got to play with my camera more. I took over 800 pictures for the weekend. I'll post a few as soon as I go through all of them.

mushrooms again

I'm not for sure how I want the orange mushrooms from the other day to look. I edited two photos from that shoot and here is what I came up with:

They needed a touch-up :)

After a bit of editing I feel much better about the photos I took today. No, I don't want to have to count on editing to get images to look the way I want, so I still get to play around with my camera. :)

a better accessory

So typing the blog below, I noticed that the boots looked so much better with the soft cap than with the heels. So I found a flag and took a few shots.

Both are in focus here. What I like about this photo is you can see his dog tag in his boot, just barely.

I like that I was able to get the flag in focus and the boots out.

Off to edit! After these two photos I'm feeling a little better.

feeling a bit frustrated.

So im getting frustrated. This morning I woke up with no intention of going out and about to play with my camera, but then I had a wonderful idea and decided to go. My idea: get a pair of my husband's boots and a pair of my shoes and shoot them together. Not to difficult of an idea, but I still could not seem to capture the passion I wanted to. Here are some of the pics I took today. I haven't edited them yet I'm still a little frustrated by it.
I like how this one is off-center.

I love these stairs, but I don't think I did them justice. This picture, also, seems a little dark but shouldn't be too hard to fix.
So I figured out how to get the boots in focus while the heels are not, but I couldn't seem to get it right the other way around.

I like this one, but the shoes seem a little out of focus.

I really like this one too!

Finally! One that I feel does me some justice. I like this one, but it's in black and white. I know there is nothing wrong with shooting in black and white, but I would like to be able to capture this in color and do editing if I want it in black and white. Overall, I really like this one. This is what I had invisioned before shooting.

I like this one a little better than the two below. It's just not capturing what I want it too, or that's what it seems like.

This one is a little better than the one below, but in my opinion something still seems off.

This one is a little dark. Maybe it's just the spot I was shooting in.

So playing around with the camera today was a good experience. The pictures didn't turn out spectacular but it did give me a chance to understand and figure out the aperture more.
ISO 200, Shutter 1/250, Aperture F8, Focal Length 165mm

ISO 200, Shutter 1/125, Aperture F5.6, Focal Length 110mm

ISO 400, Shutter 1/200, Aperture F8, Focal Length 55mm

out and about

So I was able to get out today and play with my camera a bit. Found some awesome orange mushrooms to shoot. They gave me the perfect opportunity to figure out the apeture, ISO, and shutter. I'll post a few pics in a few :)

So I really want to have my own photography business. I think I have finally found what I want to do. :) I would love to do weddings! I was so inspired by all of the weddings we attended this year. I wouldn't mind shooting babies either. They're always so cute! Senior pictures would be fun too. Seems like they always have creative ideas on how they want their shoot to be. So to get started with my new hobby/"job" we have just purchased my new camera and photo editing program. All seems like a go so far!
