It's been awhile I know. For those who don't have me on their flickr, these are my most recent edits. Some from July. I am a little behind but not really because I haven't really been taking many photos...just lots of snaps some with my P&S and some with my 40D.
This year I took my family's photos. Usually we'd go to some studio to get them done but after last years experience, I decided to save us some money and do it myself. and I did them in my moms new home on her couch in the living room. All I used was my tripod and speedlight. I am very proud..but also very self conscious to be posting these here. So I might take them down in a couple days. First here are some pictures of my brother. We didn't get a chance to go somewhere nice to take pics so I took them right outside my parents yard in some shade. He wanted to wear white even though I told him not to. oh well...it wasn't that bad.
this one in my moms living room. I really liked all the colors of that thing (what is it called?) on the couch so I left it in. The only thing that bugs me is that the curtains in the back aren't exactly in the middle but everything else I like.
used my 30mm lens and speedlite.
family photo same settings as above.
and another family photo. this one really means a lot to me. i don't know if you all remember last year when my parents home burned down and they lost everything and me and my brother lost all of our childhood things. I saw a picture of my dad from that time and he looked so sad and so much older. It makes me happy that they now have a new home and lots of things again. This new home came with all the furniture that they needed! Everything. It was a blessing. And this past summer was definitely a new beginning. My moms new dog has also helped her to fill that empty spot in her heart after losing 3 of her pets. So she needed to be in the pic too sorry but i do not like the way i look in this picture :oops: i totally forgot to do my hair that day. ugh!
50mm and speedlite
And we've all taken pics of baby bums I LOVE this one of my son. If this is inappropriate let me know I will take it down.
my moms cat lazing around
and a couple weekends ago. I didn't take very many pictures. I really need to learn how to see more creatively! this one is in my siggy but just a bit bigger so you can see it better I really love this one! I know..its just mommy goggles.
cc not necessary but welcomed I can't exactly go back and retake my family photos though since they are an ocean away I hope I can take better pics later on. My home isn't that clean all the time (and its small) so i can't exactly take photos of my kids inside. It would just be snaps all the time, you know...distracting background, etc. thanks for looking...and i have a few more on my flickr. I hope to add more later on. I really wish I could take more shots of my brother though. I know he'd appreciate it and I could use the practice...but alas...there is an ocean between us. :-?
