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:

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

I
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.

  1. Kirsten,
    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!
