Savannah's good friend is having her birthday party this evening, so we went over for a while when we dropped Savannah off and helped with tie dying! I took over 400 pics, but to be honest, Rey is home for the first time in five weeks and I just can't find the heart to go through every single one tonight! I thought this one captured the heart of a just-turned-12-year old girl! LOL

taken outside in a partially shaded area at about noon
Our trip to City Museum was a hit! Savannah commented several times that it wasn't mu-seum it was a FUN- seum, lol! The kids had a great time climbing and exploring. I would have a great time just going in to take pictures. Unfortunately to really take good pictures I have to be a little removed from the action. That just wasn't possible today since I was trying to keep up with a pack of kids! I also REALLLLLLY need a new lens. It was a little dark in there and I had trouble getting decent shots in certain places. At times I just gave up and switched to auto WITH flash (gasp) because I didn't want to miss the moment trying to get the shot. It wasn't a total loss, I did get a few good shots and some fun snapshots as well. I think I foresee an adult field trip in my future so I can just focus on pictures...
Today was not a day for the camera. Rey is coming home tomorrow after having been gone over 5 weeks and I spent the day taking the dog to the vet, cleaning, cutting the grass, and taking Dylan to drums. HOPE was off having fun taking pictures on a fieldtrip with our homeschool group! I can't wait to see them! Savannah was with Hope and our group on this little excursion, I'm excited to hear all about it! So, I took Max to the vet b/c he's been limping and found out that he has a torn ligament (basically without going into technical stuff) and will need surgery to the tune of TOO many dollars! This dog should be in pictures b/c then at least he would earn his keep! ;o)

I understand now why baby photographers get paid so much- it is NOT an easy thing to do! I took over 200 shots of this little guy and kept only a handful. The lighting was poor so every little movement created blur (and babies move A LOT) not to mention that he was very unhappy. His mamma kept saying it was okay, she didn't mind crying pictures but I did. We're going to try again this weekend with some outdoor shots. Hopefully the natural lighting will help and we'll be able to do more!

WB- flash (I used filler flash on this shot to compensate for the window)
Can I just say that I HATE fluorescent lights!! My white balance was difficult today under the harsh lights but I managed to get a few decent shots. This was an attempt to learn to use filler flash. Not perfect but not horrible either- which is just fine for learning new things.
or almost! Her Birthday is actually Thursday. Today was Kya's bday party and hopefully her mother had a better camera day than me! The lighting was frustrating and I had the wrong lens, so I wasn't very pleased with my shots today. It's not a big deal, I find it comes in cycles, I have a great day and then a not-so-great day. But, I liked this shot of the birthday girl, she was looking at Hope and showing her the telephone that she painted.

I know I already posted today, but this evening as Savannah & I were driving home it was raining but the sun was out. I told her to keep an eye on the sky for rainbows and she immediately said "right there!" (I thought she was joking she said it so quick!). I pulled over and jumped out in the rain, the sun was shining on the field and I was just in the right place at the right time, it was gone 5 minutes later! I didn't even have time to mess with my settings, so all I could do was meter and shoot!
f4, 1/1000 sec, ISO 200
I wish I had another lens on, but I had my zoom, so I could only get the shot at 55mm and no wider, but I was happy to catch it!
