Anyway, I've been working on getting to know the camera and playing around with different things and also learning to "clean up" in Photoshop, Picasa and my HP Image Zone software. I've taken some truly amazing shots of my kids, which sadly, cannot be displayed here.
However, Sissy has the most unbelievably beautiful eyes and I will share a portion of a photo I took of her the other day:
I've belonged to an email loop (on yahoo groups now) of Moms of kids due in April of 1998 for over 10 years now. Those of you who know me best know that Buddy was due in April of 98, but was born in January of 98. Nevermind, I stayed with the group and we're still going strong today.
As an offshoot of this group, about six of us have branched off to form a digital SLR photo group. We post pictures, questions, etc. and receive advice, constructive criticism or simply answers. We have assignments each week to familiarize ourselves with our cameras and post production software. Last week, the assignment was a self-portrait.
My submission is the "About Me" picture I have now. I have a tripod and a remote control tool I used for that.
This week, the assignment is: landscape. Well, I live in West Virginia... how hard will that be? The hard part will be deciding on just one submission!
I'll post my finished product here, too.
