Fun Photos

This weekend was my little great nephew Ben's 3rd birthday.  Ok.  How can I be old enough to have great
anythings?  Until Sunday, I'm still just 40.  But I
digress.  Becky threw a splendid Cars birthday party for Ben,
complete with a Cars cake...pinata...and rain.  Here are some of my
favorite shots from the party:

That's great-grandpa Ernie with Jadyn, Ben, Ryan, Sean & Logan. 

Jadyn, striking a pose.
Ben, the birthday boy.
Little Ryan...he's 2.

Sean, with his big 'ol hunk of fool's gold.

Logan.  The social events planner.  Made sure everyone had a great time!

There's my handsome husband!

And this is Stevie.  Isn't she a doll?  This is my favorite photo from the day.

am learning so much in my photography class.  Fill the frame with
your story.  Change viewpoints.  Quit shooting in auto. 
Play with aperture & light.  Don't use a flash.  Metering
(which I so don't have down yet).  White balance (ditto).  It
has made my hyper critical of my photos.  I could tell you tons of
things that are wrong with each & everyone of these....but you know
what?  I don't even care.  They are great photos from my
little nephews party & they tell a story of a really great birthday
party.  Really, that's all that matters.   I can't wait
to scrapbook them!  You'll be seeing them shortly I'm sure.

    I think your photographs are looking great!. It is evident that you are
    learning alot!!! Maybe you should teach a class so we can all learn to
    be better photographers!
