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 décor 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! :)
