kissing birds

Hey, guys!

I mentioned last week that I'm taking a class this month with Kristin Rogers.

Among other topics, one of the things I feel like I've been personally challenged by most is how I use the light available in our home.

I'm pretty much always going for the same kind of shot. Bright, colorful, and evenly exposed.

But, sometimes, that's just not possible. And, I'm learning, sometimes it isn't even the best option.

So, I'm playing around with the light more than usual. Which is fun. Several of you noticed that in my most recent 10 on 10. Thank you for the kind comments :)

It's good to learn something new... to start making the most of any lighting situation, instead of just relying on the same old tried and true.

We just finished up the first of four weeks in the class. This week is on shooting in manual mode... which I already do. But, I know there will be plenty of room for learning and growing. And the women in the class with me are wonderful. Very encouraging and challenging.

I'm looking forward to it :)

This was Baby's first time wearing piggy tails. Scrumptious.

Hope y'all have a great night. Thanks for coming by!

These are so beautiful Jacci. It is fun being in the class with you and I can't wait to see more of what you capture this week. So talented.

The pigtails are adorable! Too funny, I also just posted some pics where I was playing with light differently than I usually do. So fun to change it up, yours are just beautiful.

I've been out of the blogging loop for too long, love the new site!

I am trying to learn how to shoot in different light, so I am not limited to good light. That severely limits the opportunities I can take photos!

Your little girl reminds me so much of mine (who's now a teen). Was wonderful to relive some memories just now. thanks

The piggytails...I'm melting. She's so sweet.
And what a wonderful subject to practice using your camera in new ways with. (is that a sentence, sounds weird, you know what I mean)

Beautiful light, you're very talented- congrats on trying something new. I'm trying to figure it out on my own right now, it'll be a bit before I can get in a class.
