My He(ART)-Full Life

Sunday, November 27, 2011


In the past few weeks I have finally started using the new camera that Tim bought me for Mother's Day..uh, back in May!!! I can't tell you just how much I love it to pieces, how it takes the most amazing pics and is an absolute dream. All this time, I had been using my point and shoot, which I love and has served me very well. But this camera is completely over the top!!  I am in love!!

Of course I am still learning about the gazillion things it can do...still trying to learn about all the different setting and lenses and...already, though, I notice the different quality of image it is able to capture. But I think the pictures speak for themselves???

This is an inspiration line on one of my studio walls. All I did was tie a piece of hemp twine from two nails...hang some photos and art with clothespins and...I can change them out whenever I want. 

With this photo of the pencils I played around with the color filters using photo much fun stuff to try out!!!

I took a series of portraits with Tara in her dance tutu and...I absolutely love the way they turned out. I have already ordered a few huge photos to get framed. I can't believe how fast my little girl has grown.
*I had such a laid back weekend...full of resting up, sleeping, family time, reading and playing with my camera. It's going to be the last lazy weekend for us over here because starting this week things are going to be super super busy with moving stuff.

Yay!!! So glad you are having fun and love the pics! I have been a Canon SLR girl for a long time. I do not know everything, but if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask! Deep breaths for the packing.... one step at a time....
