Playing with my camera today...

Most of the people doing the challenge on Willow Traders are using their 50 mm lens. Well, I don't have one, but the idea is the same. I watched the DVD that Greg got me to figure the camera out the other night... the narrator was talking crazy talk like 'reciprocal' and things that Greg understood and I didn't. I did figure out how to change the white balance and ISO though which is a HUGE step for me!

This is still turning out funny, fishbowl-ish. Maybe because I'm taking a picture of 2 12x12 layouts? I did this layout at the Mother's Day Crop I went to.

An 'oldie' but goodie. I feel like I've just been posting layouts of the girls...

Here is Teagan at 1 yr old.

This was a cool challenge at Linnecards.com - scrap all of your children at the same age.

I took new pictures of some of my layouts to see the difference - very cool. I also managed to get a few really close up shots, which I had previously not been able to figure out.

Detail - look at how close I could get!!

I would like to be on a Design Team and so I need to learn to take (much!) better pictures of my layouts, as I believe this is how you submit your work. I also have a scanner, and I know some people prefer to scan their pages, but I think the camera is just so much more fun!

I also ordered one of these pretties for my camera: http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=8809914 Krisite is a member at Willow Traders. I can't wait, it's going to match all of my clothes!

Oh my goodness! Your layouts are beautiful. Congrats on the camera too. I can't handle my little camera, so we decided no need to upgrade. Oh well. Still better than polaroid pics. ;)
