Week 19 - I Heart Faces Blurb Book

I wouldn't say this is one of the best pictures I have ever took, but it's my current favorite. Mainly because it goes against most rules of photography.

Night time / low light photography

I took a class on Wednesday night on low light and night time photography. I am a natural light photographer at heart, and this is a new medium to me. Since the class was free, I thought I might get something out of it.

Here is a picture I took today on a forested little walkway, using the technique I learned Wednesday night. This was taken with a point and shoot, and I can only imagine what I could do with my DSLR. As noted in the previous post, I have no photo processing software, so for now, these are coming straight of the camera.

I'm supposed to go out and shoot with the photographer tonight, and extension of Wednesdays class, but I have to bring Josephine with me, and we will see if I even make it there.


This is a test.....

I have tons of picture to post, but our computer has gone crazy and won't do certain things. We had to unistall all Adobe products and are still can't seem to get it to work right.

While Doug works on the computer, I thought I would share this picture (if it will load) from a walk around Capital Lake on Friday. This is straight out of the camera with our little point and shoot.

Every April this area gets all abuzz about Tulips. The largest farms are in Skagit County, about 3 hours away. A friend told me about a Tulip Farm in Mossyrock, and the three of us headed out there to see the tulips.

I'm still having a difficult time deciding wich one I like.

This was a complete oops. I was trying to take a picture of Josephine and had the wrong shutterspeed. I ended up moving the camera while the picture was being taken.

Doug and I had a little mini vacation in Vegas last weekend. I took my camera, and have been editing photos all morning. I didn't take many pictures, but this one, I just fell in love with and need to share it.

I Heart Faces - Week 17 Adults - HATS!

I was lucky enough to attend a party in Las Vegas this weekend, where Doug's coworker was having her 50th birthday party. Her theme for the day was "Red Hats." It was a blast to meet all of her friends and family. Even walking through the our hotel, people would stop and say, "are you with Monica's party?!"

Here is the beatiful Monica, with her wonderful red hat.
