6 months

I can't believe it's been almost 6 months since I last posted. Things have been pretty crazy with my 2 little ones. I feel like we're finally getting in to a groove now. Buddy will be 2 this month and now I may finally be able to get back to blogging. I'm still not done with my Project Life 2010 Album but I just have about 2 months of journaling to do. I have the pics for 2011 printed but I haven't even taken the album out of the box yet. Gotta finish 2010 first! Soon I will have free time...at least that's what I keep telling myself.

Project Life Tuesday: Week 40

I'm going to use some of my recent Sunday Scavenger Hunt challenge photos for Project Life as well, so I won't repost them.

I took some pics of the kids on the porch. Still trying to practice shooting in manual.

With these pics, I was practicing shooting in low light.
I love Buddy's expressions and his teeth are so cute! I'm also using this pic for The Happiness Project because Buddy's cute smile makes me happy!

One morning, before we had to get going, the kids played together in Birdy's room. I know it's not the best picture, but it's every day life.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Oct 3




I didn't get 4 & 5. At the beginning of the week I thought this would be an easy list to get. I had the ideas but I never made the time to take the shots I wanted. So this week, I'm going to focus a little more. :)
This weeks pics, if you'd like to join in, are:

Oh Shoot! Aperture

The basic idea:
Open aperture: The wider your aperture (lower f-stop), the more light you let in. Also, the depth of field increases. That's what gives some photos that blurred effect in the background or forefront (called bokeh). Using this technique is good for a portrait, especially if you don't want the stuff in the background to really show clearly.
Closed aperture: A smaller aperture (higher f-stop), lets less light in but leaves more of the picture crisp. Better for landscape or group shots.

Open aperture:
Buddy & Daddy are in focus. The back of the house and  even the grass is blurred. I like this because I want the focus to be on Daddy's arms reaching out to Buddy.

Closed aperture:
Buddy & the lattice are all in focus, even the back of the house behind him.

Project Life Tuesday: Week 38

Monday, my neice turned 18. I still can't believe it. And when I looked at the picture of Birdy (who was sitting on my neice's lap), I realized that some day she's going to turn 18, too. I am so not ready for that!

All the cousins on both sides of the families.

Birdy had a great time at the birthday party.

Tuesday, we took a walk to a park and to MiMi's house. Buddy had lots of fun on the big slide.

He laughed every time he came down, even when he flipped over on his side.

Birdy enjoyed showing Buddy how to go down the slide.

Aaron helped Birdy climb up this thing and it became her favorite thing to do.

Before we left, Birdy collected some rocks to take home.

I'm taking a photography class and I'm learning so much. I am so excited about the results I'm getting. The first 3 photos, from the party, were all shot without flash. I never would have been able to do that before this class. I'm loving it!
