Almost 2 yrs ago, Kelly bought me a dslr camera for my birthday. The only thing on my wish list was that I could snap a quick picture of Taye (or any small child) and have the picture "snap" before he turned his head. I was tired of having so many profile shots. Anyway... I have no complaints whatsoever about my camera, except that I don't know how to use it! I'm able to snap head on shots of small wiggly children, but that is about as far as I have got.
For example, I can't take a still shot worth beans. I absolutely love my cake dome (a Christmas gift from my grandparents) and wanted to share a picture of one of its many uses with the blog world. 30 snaps later and that gem of a picture above is all I ended up with. My self teaching methods are not working, so I think it is time I pursue taking some kind of beginners class. Otherwise poor baby girl will feel like the paparazzi are after her with as many trys as it will take me to get the perfect shot!
Something I do know how to use quite well are the pans used to bake (not fry!) the taco shells. They are another gift from my grandparents, found at World Market, they also carry them at a cute little kitchen store in Sumner, WA, I can't remember the name right now... Anyway, Kelly and I bake up shells frequently and have found that the cake dome works well to keep them fresh!
That's it for this little post. Hope you are having a wonderful evening, I'm off to get ready for bed, yes it is 8:11 pm, exciting times being a giant pregnant lady.
Oh, one more thing, any recommendations for a super super beginner photography class? Like one little step above turning on red eye reduction :)
