Project 52: Weeks 20 & 21

It’s been a busy month and I was starting to panic as I realized I was now almost three weeks behind on the P52. Soo… nothing like finding two pics you’ve taken recently and make them FIT the weekly themes. I’m now back on track.

Week 20: Perspective (point of view)

Me sneaking on Miss Sneaky (well, she thinks she is).

Week 21: Contrast – Our best friend George is back. 🙂

And voila! Caught up. 🙂 This is not something I want to do all the time. I much prefer what I submit when it’s been mindfully shot for the theme. But sometimes a girl just needs to catch up.

This week: High Pass. Say whaaaat? Me too. No idea how that one is going to get done. Tutorial here, for those interested.

Happy Weekend!

Two years progress. In cake.

So… I’ve been at this camera thing for just over two years now. When Mr. B turned one, I did his cake smash shoot in our kitchen. I wanted the pictures, but I didn’t want to pay for them. So I did the best I could with what I knew.

Now, exactly two years later, I have done Miss Em’s cake smash. Its a good opportunity to see where some growth has happened, and places I still need to do some more work. So here it is, a side by side:

Keep in mind for B’s, I had just discovered actions (a set of editing steps at the press of a button). I had no idea how to use them, and that’s why he looks ridiculously smooothed or blurry in some of them. Oops!

This next one is the only one that I prefer the earlier version. Love this kids eyes.

In the end, I’m happy that I can see growth. I have so far to go, but I’m starting to get a decent number of pictures I’m quite happy with. I think I need to work on composition, and different light (boy am I struggling outside in full sun). But YAY! Steps have been made!

Project 52: Weeks 18 &19

Okay. I still haven’t done the street photography week. But I WILL do it. Because I refuse to have an unfinished week at the end.
Week 18 was “Leading Lines”. I submitted this shot.

Week 19 was “Rhythm” and I used the circle of eggs picture I posted a few weeks ago. I’ll spare you from posting it again.

This week is “Perspective”. I feel like I’m constantly running behind at this point. So I’ll either cook up something today or use something I have as a backup. 🙂

Happy Tuesday. 🙂

Babies and Water Tables.

I love sunshine and warm weather. We dusted off the water table last week. We haven’t been able to play with it again since, but I can tell it will be a huge part of our summer. A warm, lovely, enclosed space full of fun for babies.

It was just Easter, Right?

I’ve had these plastic eggs hanging around since Easter. Sitting on the counter waiting for me to play with them. I finally got there today during nap time. My house is a disaster, but I was taking pictures of plastic eggs instead of cleaning it.

The results:

I’m trying to get back into the groove with blogging a couple times a week. With the nicer weather I’m taking less pictures, because I’m scared to take my camera out and drop it while chasing two kiddos. Will have to get over that one. 🙂
