Playing with Photographry

Playing with Photographry

I have a great camera, and I received a terrific lens for Christmas, but I have only recently started playing with my camera and new lens to see what I can do with them.  I started by photographing plants because they remain still unless it is windy.  

 


   
   
 
Then I practiced using different settings and manually zooming in for close-ups of animals.

       

  

  

  

  

Today I finally decided to try photographing my two-year-old girls.  They are not usually cooperative when it comes to photos, so I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised.  I know I am biased, but I think these girls are gorgeous.  

           

I still have a lot to learn, and I will keep practicing, but I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from the past two weeks.

Springtime Discoveries

Springtime Discoveries

Our little girls are two years old and love to play outside and discover interesting things, so we have been spending much of our days outdoors this spring.  We are so blessed to be able to live out in the country where all of our children can explore and experience nature and all of its beauty.  Here are some things we have discovered in the last few weeks.  As you can see, all of our children (and a friend) are enjoying springtime.
