Flash Back Friday (may 25)

Sorry I've been MIA lately! I started a part time job 20-30 hours a week and I've been crazy busy.

Let's see your recent photos from the past 2 weeks!

Have a good holiday weekend to us in the US!

Beautiful pics, Katie! I LOVE the first one! Wow! Wonderful eyes in that one. Looks a bit noisy - it's so gorgeous, I wonder if it would benefit from being run through Noiseware?

Thanks! Yes, it's noisy. I had to up my iso to 800, and my camera just doesn't seem to handle that. Noiseware is free, right? I should probably look into downloading it.

Yes, Noiseware Community Edition is free and works like a charm!

Here's some from the past couple of days. I seem to have been shooting so much this week...

Wish I hadn't chopped his feet on this, but Nora was to the right and I was trying to cut her out.

Tia, is that your youngest? He is adorable! I hadn't seen him lately!

And Amber, your little guy is a cutie...he looks like a happy baby! Love that smile at the park. :bigsmile:

We went to the beach last weekend - I have lots of questions about how to improve, but will post some different pics on a separate thread when I get a minute. These were just some cute snaps...all taken at different times of the day.

Focus fell on hair :roll:

The next two are really soft, but I like anyway:


My favorite:

There are some great shots this week from everyone!! Tracy, I think you're really coming along with shots of your kids!! Great job!

Here are some of mine from the past week.

I probably could have saved this one a little better if my trial of LR4 hadn't ended (I got the go ahead to buy it though!!), but I HAVE to share this one! So typical.

We played in the sprinkler last weekend.

We worked a buzz saw by riding a horse on Saturday, then went over to the blacksmith who burned their names into their pieces of wood.

They had the steam engine at the train museum running last Sunday!! It was my first time riding a real steam train Smile

A rare picture of Carson sleeping. I was actually able to open his blackout shades and get the big camera out for this. I made quite a bit of noise and he slept right through it. Amazing! He's such a light sleeper!

Those swing shots are so cute, Tia! You really caught the "kid spirit" well in them!

Amber, adorable pics of James!

StateChick (you never post your name! :)), I really like the mood caught in the first one... wind blowing in their hair, just a true childhood "beach" moment. Your kids are so cute!

Thanks for the kind comment about my kid shots, Steph! Your first one cracks me up. Yeah, so typical of siblings, for sure! Love the sleeping pic, and the blacksmith one.

Steph, I love the bnw of Ryken #10 I think if I counted right and that last picture you posted OMG so cute! If you find a deal on lightroom please let me know as I am also buying it soon.

Tracy, love the light you got in Noras eyes in that orange dress:)

Amber, I have always loved your photos but that phone one of Nathen is one of my faves.

Candace (Pretty sure thats her name:) statechick) That suit is adorable. Love it on the pink chair!

This was so much fun but hard at the same time. We could not use any flash and the lighting was horrible but I was only there to take shots of my girlfriend who was the ring girl and at last minute they did not have a second photographer so they asked me to get shots of the whole event! Talk about the best seat in the house! My dh was about 10rows back and I was right in front and this is HIS thing LOL

Katie - I love Ryken's "other" glasses, they really suit him.

Wonderful shares everyone.

I'll be honest here, I am a gamer and Diablo 3 has stolen my spare time, I am sure once I get through the story line I will spend a bit less time gaming and more time on other hobbies.
