Happy Friday Everyone!

Let's see some photos from the last week or so!

I need something to entertain me while sitting at the doctor's office with Loli (again). Smile

Best,

OMG, the snowflakes are amazing! I tried a few weeks back but it was HARD!

I am trying hard not to go overboard with the wildlife and do a bit more portraiture or different things for me, so here are my 3 faves this week.

I am so glad it's Friday! We have a youth retreat tonight, so I will be super busy!

Amy- GORGEOUS snowflake shots. Usually snowflake shots are on paper or something, but I LOVE your idea and putting them where they land! Great job! Oh, and processing on #2- PERFECT! Love the processing there!

Kerry- that last one is STUNNING. I love the first one as well!

I only got my camera out once this week. If you read my blog, you have already seen them....sorry. Randy's is poorly edited, frustrated with my editing lately...

Thanks everyone!!! Sadie yours are all cute as always! Jamie those are awesome photos! that blue swirl looks like a living creature!! Smile

I'm working on more snowflake pics....I'll post them soon. I can't imagine moving snowflakes to where you want them, to photograph--do people really do that??? LOL I just walked around the yard & driveway and photographed them as they fell, they were soooooooooooo beautiful. They were hard to find on natural surfaces (such as those dried plants), but I found some beautiful ones on our cars, too LOL.

Edit: 2 more....

LOL Loida, you're hilarious!!!! Eva & I played outside for the first time yesterday since there was no wind. Earlier in the week, it was beautiful but too windy!!! lol

I had planned to make a separate thread for my snowflakes ....I think I will still do that. Nevermind my previous sentence I had here, lol

Those snowflakes are just gorgeous!!! Makes me want to give it a try the next time it snows!

I decided to give my hand a try at something other than my kids this week. Not sure I'm too happy with them, but we have to start somewhere, right? Wink

so many wonderful shots this week! this is one reason I truly love this thread!

Amy ... I can't believe the detail in your snowflakes. Just totally blows me away. They almost look too perfect to be real!

Kerry ... I love that first shot, just LOVE IT!!!! The colors are so warm and inviting yet the mist is also kinda mysterious. Smile And those eyes ... WOWSERS! Are those your eyes????

Sadie ... your kiddos are SO CUTE and I just love those hats! I think you are being too hard on yourself on Randy's pic. It looks OK to me (though I am at work).

Jamie ... that first one is AWESOME!!! How slow was your shutter speed? It looks so cool to see the ice in the water too.

OOOOH Stephanie! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE that first one! WOW! The snow and ice shots are cool too, but that first one just BLOWS me away!

you guys are a very hard act to follow. It's been a tough week here between work and sickness, so I only got a few snaps.

My little guy working on building his 'Champion's Plaza':

My cold and tired puppy princess - too cold to rush the camera for a change:

And this collage ... the pics are from December, but I'm just now starting to play with them:

Take care everyone!

Best,

Yes!! Jamiemarie1

And Gigi, my shutter speed was 1/15 I'm pretty sure..I'll have to go back and check! I took some that were slower, but it was cold and my hands were shaking, so they just came out blurry...need to take my tripod back with me!

Awesome share from every one.

I haven't really been able to take anything decent just snaps of my kiddos.

Here is one of my little one - sleeping with his paci. Taken with my flash - it was late at night, no other light source - haha.

Is it too redundant for me to share my 365 project pics in this thread?

Amber, no! Smile

I took these on Wednesday of this week. It was snowing outside and we were being lazy inside! Just some snaps, but I love them anyway. Smile

Here's mine for this week:

The sunsets have been gorgeous here so Thursday I remembered to bring my camera and new 24mm f2.8 with me so I could pull over on the way home and snap some.

I learned that I needed to be a little more patient and really wait for the sun to go all the way down past the horizon to get the best colors. I also needed clouds, so I hoped for another great display on Friday, but it didn't pan out as well. No clouds.

When all else fails - make your kid model for you when the clouds don't cooperate!

these are all so fabulous!!!!!!!!

Meagan, are all those taken with natural light? Very nice! Smile

Amber, nice shots! I like the second one in the jungle gym Smile We are going to something similar tomorrow. Wondering if I should take my camera with me. I usually just take my P&S because I'm too chicken always thinking people will look at me funny for bringing my huge camera. Blum 3 I seriously need to get over it! I don't know how though Lol

Lauren, BEAUTIFUL! Love the colors in the sky and the clouds! And I like your processing in #5 and 6 Smile

Ohh oh I know I'm late on this but I took a nice one today that I'm quite proud of Smile I'm starting to love my speedlite again. I've been in a funk lately. But after reading some blogs last night I think I've found a bit of motivation to continue with taking a photo each day Smile Here's one I shared on my FB.


January 027 by loidaeg, on Flickr

I just LOVE how natural it looks and it does look like there's a window on the right side right? Well there's just a wall there, no window Smile I can't wait to play around some more! I think I might have to practice on some dolls or something though Lol

Ah, beautiful shots Ladies!

Amber, that macro shot is gorgeous! Great shots!

Lauren, those sunset pictures are beautiful, just stunning. I love how the horizon pulls you in too-especially with the wire fence. Awesome.

Loida, great job with the speedlight!!! I totally would have guessed natural light.

Yes, mine were with natural light. It's all I use now--I haven't touched my speedlight in at least a year. Smile The D700 helps with that. Wink

That's awesome! Smile It's very dark here...every single day. My house is a bit dark too though. Not enough windows. I really don't like this house anymore. lol At some point I did but that was before I really got into photography. I'd LOVE to have natural light coming in my house all the time. But January is the darkest month for Norway.
