This is Evelyn, the sweet baby of a friend from my photography group... our newest little "Lens Baby!" Sara was so kind to let a couple of us from the group come over and "practice" on her beautiful girl. This is not the kind of photography I get to practice very often, and I found I really, really enjoyed it.
Meet Evelyn Mae...
The reason I was so MIA on the blog for the month of November is that I was fortunate enough to get into a Clickin' Moms photography class I've been wanting to take called Shooting 301: Composition and Creativity. The reason I say I was fortunate to get a spot is because this class filled up in 71 seconds!! It is in high demand for a reason!
Each week we had reading material, shooting assignments, got daily critique from our peers, and weekly critique from our amazing instructor and TAs. I can't say enough great things about this course; I don't want to go into great detail about all the material and what I learned, but I will say I have become a much more thoughtful photographer.
I'm just going to do a major picture dump a few of my practice and submitted images...
More blog posts with pics from November to come!
This is Jennifer, the founder of the Lens Baby photo moms group I belong to. She's an amazingly talented photographer, and she helped me so much when I was first starting to figure out all this photography stuff. She's done some shoots for us (Caroline at the hospital, Christmas card pics last year), and it was high time I returned the favor!
And here she's eating lunch. Gotta keep her busy! This one was taken w/ the 28mm f/1.8G. I'm trying to decide how much distortion I'm okay with. I would rather do the 35mm f/1.4G, but it's twice as expensive.
There are definitely times I wish the girls were a little older so they would hold still and let me position them, but we'll be there soon enough! I'm pushing my luck with Kate as it is... she said to me the other day, "Mama, stop picturing!" I guess I'll have to take what I can get.
