Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

POTD - Week 6: Aperture

I love playing with aperture - the depth of field in a photograph. My only problem this week was finding a subject to play with. We've had a lot of sick kiddies in our house, the weather has been gloomy, and my mojo hasn't been flowing. So, I fall back to my love of macro photography and finally found a subject that brought a smile to my face.





Top photo f/2.8, 1/60, ISO 100, bottom photo f/11, 1/60, ISO 100. Both with Canon 100mm macro lens.
