    Freeze Frame

    Thursday, April 30, 2009

    In something not related to the BIG BIG, now known as our possible move to Tokyo, I've been playing with our camera. It's a gorgeously big thing-very fancy-and was a gift from my brother in law. Of course, because it is gorgeous and fancy, I don't really know how to properly use it to its best advantage.

    I just point, focus on my intended targets (most often the children), and shoot.

    I'm a pretty simple girl that way.

    But this is all a-changing since I've pulled out the book that goes with the camera. There's lingo and all sorts of nice words to describe the different settings, but like I said, I'm pretty simple. I just look for symbols and move forward from there.

    So would you like to see our most recent experiements with the camera? The children were very glad to assist (as always), and there are quite a few good shots that came of this very technical process-which to most probably isn't very technical. But hey, I'm a learning girl. This is all a work in progress.

    The wee one was super precious (and drooling) as he played around, and eldest, well...I think we may have caught a glimpse of her in a few years. I thought the camera was supposed to add ten pounds, not ten years.

    Nothing fancy was done with the fancy camera, but I did go outside my comfort zone of ready, aim, fire.

    So enjoy!

    Your children are just precious.

    Thanks for the sweet sweet comment today. I'm glad you are enjoying the series.

    Now on to more important things. Your children are beautiful! I love all of the shots. I got a Nikon D60 for Christmas and sad to say I still can't take pictures like that. I need to set home one day and read the manual!

    I just read up on your maybe move abroad and it sounds so exciting. I can't wait to see what happens.

    Your photographs are wonderful! Of course, it doesn't hurt that you have such beautiful subjects.

    FYI, there are a few very simple concepts that, once you learn them, will make portrait-taking and such much easier. If you guys want a quick starter course some time, I'll be happy to get you started in exchange for some weekend coffee!
