365 Project Week 4

Another week! Goes by crazy fast, but I'm feeling a little more confident now that I've made it almost a month. The first picture is a little bit of a cheat since I didn't take it, but it was a busy day with my student recital! So I'm giving myself a break there. Our friends came to play on Monday, and I snapped the adorable picture of that cutie with the big blue eyes! A student gave me the kit to grow the flower in the next picture. I'm hoping to try my hand at a few more flower shots while it looks so amazing. I got a picture in music class, too, although Holden doesn't look so excited about that triangle. And the last one I absolutely love!! I've been on manual mode more and more, and was just trying to take some and mess with my settings while the boys played with trains on the floor. I got several I liked, and it was fun to try different settings to see what happened, but that one was way too cute not to use! :) If you have any tips on macro photography, let me know! I'd love to do some super close ups of the boys, eyelashes or hands, etc, and don't really know how to go about it. So it was a good week overall, but definitely hoping it warms up any time soon so I can get a few more outside again! (Or I could just be brave, bundle up and go on a nature walk, camera in tow...we'll see.)


  1. Love all the stuff this week :) the last pix is defiantly my favorite too!! I use my 50 for macro stuff. Get close and hold my breathe lol.. No but really it can be tricky, I usually have good luck with the 50mm and about a 3.5a & a decent shutter speed nothing below 70. Love to hear your shooting manual!! My camera modes are way off from my manual! It drives me kinda crazy.. So glad we are both going strong.. I look forward to your pix all week :)

    1. Thanks! That is so sweet. :) Must admit to checking your blog every day, too! Lots of my friends rarely update so it's fun knowing I'll get to see something new every day! I have a 35 mm, so I'll have to put that back on and play around with macro this week. Thanks again for the support! :)

  2. Nice work! My favorites are 20 and 21! His blue eyes are gorgeous!

  3. Hi! you made a comment on my blog and I am just now getting around to checking your 365 out. I really love the composition of your photos! I can tell you are very deliberate in your shooting and it really brings you into the picture. good luck on your journey!
