365 Project Week 7

It was another weird week, photography-wise. On one hand, I'm totally over the winter weather and the lack of light in my house, and just feeling very blah and uninspired. Took a quick snapshot of the boys Monday, and took a picture of my cookie baking stuff Wednesday, not great. And I've been wanting to take pictures of the birds at our feeder and just don't know how! If I go outside I know they'll fly away, so I need to figure out some way to sneak more pictures of them.

On the other hand, I got to do a few really cool things this week! I made my own backdrop stand and took my first "studio" picture of a friend's little girl, which was so fun! Ignore the fact that the trim doesn't touch the floor...didn't have a way to cut it down yet! :) And on Tuesday, I got to take pictures of my friend's hours-old baby girl in the hospital! That was so amazing to get to be there and to feel like I got some good shots for her. I still feel like I don't know what I'm doing most of the time, but I felt like I took some nice pictures she'll be happy to have! On Saturday, we had our second toddler Valentine's Day party. It was fun, and I'll blog about it more on its own, but it's frustrating photography-wise. I never know what settings to be on, or how to get the quick shot right in the moment. (A brand new baby isn't doing much moving around, while a room full of toddlers definitely is!) Lighting is still so tough in my house, even during the day. And I always end up wishing I'd taken more pictures, especially of set-up and d├ęcor type stuff, but I always run out of time.

So like I said, a weird week, but at least I've kept it up every day. I'm almost to 50 days, so at least that's something! :)

  1. Oh my goodness the glasses pix is too great!!! The composition absolutely everything is perfect in that image.. I spotted you in your Kitchen Aid lol, so cute!! I love love reflections.. Your bird pix is great, they are so tricky last winter was my first season taking pix and I got super into birds.. Their just so pretty. The new born pix is lovely I love the finger holding!! And last but not least the first is adorable.. I cant tell you how many times my back drops haven't met the floor. I cant seem to find them in the correct measurements. I truly love reading your blog every week :) Beautiful captures!! The best yet!!!

    1. Ha, thanks. Any advice on reflection images? I'd like to try that more, and maybe get in some shots with the boys! And any tips on shooting birds would be awesome...If I go outside they fly away, but not sure shooting through the window is my best bet either. :)
