a little photoshoot and a toot
look at these little love birds...otherwise known as my sister and brother-in-law. i wish i were this photogenic. most of my pictures turn out with me making a jim carey face or in the middle of eating.
any-shways, no, i am not a photographer, but i do enjoy taking pictures. no, i do not know all about editing pics, but i'm learning. no, i do not make my children pose for pictures constantly trying to get the best shot. wait, that last part is true.
so ya, when i give photography advice, it is through the lense of a learner, not a pro. that is my disclaimer to say, 'i could be totally wrong'. but i'll tell you what works for me.
a) a sort of nice camera. i have an older model cannon rebel. you'll have to get rid of that kodak point and shoot.
b) a program to edit your photos. i like lightroom, but a good place to start if you just want the simple stuff is picasa! it's free to download and it's awesome for getting the basics done. especially if you're a beginner.
c) someone who is a photographer or knowledgeable about photography and cameras that you can sit down with or call occasionally/sometimes obsessively with questions.
d) a good attitude. i'm just kidding. i hate when people say stuff like, "bring your notebook, a pen, and a good attitude!"
that makes me bring a bad attitude, or as i call it, a "badattitude".
so ya, that's just a nugget (properly pronounced NEW-GET)to chew on...
thanks for being cute audrey and zach. and thanks for letting me practice my photog skills. i'm sorry when i farted and you had to smile through that sulfur experience.
i didn't really fart, but that would have been funny i think. next time... next time.
