Getting To Know You, Getting To Know All About You..

Great. Now that song is stuck in my head. Ok heavy image post ahead.

The bunnies, carrots, and tic tac toe board are all done. I’m still working on a way to enclose it but have gotten sidetracked with my camera. I’m getting to know it better, I’ve started using the manual setting. I’ve taken a photography class before and I’ve read some books and articles online and now it is finally starting to click. FINALLY.

I want to learn how to take great pictures. How do other people do it? Christine was just recently asking the same thing. I am not completely happy with my pictures. I feel like I’m missing something. Sometimes I see photos and I’m just: wow, how do they do that? I want pictures like that.

I wish I had retained more from the photography class I took. But unfortunately it was an early class and with me being a night owl, nothing from the class stuck. I keep saying I want to take another class but who has the time.

It was hard taking these pictures. Isabelle is moving around so much. I’m not very quick with manual focus and getting all the settings right was slow going. But at least I have something now. When I first started in manual setting the pictures were completely white or completely black. Much improved now. :)

And now I will subject you to the rest of my efforts.

Watching tv.

What mommy?


AHH NO! Playing with my wacom pen! I didn’t have the heart to take it away from her.

She does this cute thing when she sits. She aims with her butt like you see in this picture and then plants herself down.

And yes…sucking on the Wacom pen. It’s not really a good idea. Once when I let her do that, it worked funny.

And there, all done.
