Learning Photography (Kinda)!

Let me be honest I have always love photography, and up until this point I have always sucked at it. Every once in a while (with luck) I would get a good shot but I realized as Noah was getting older it was getting harder and harder to get a good shot of his face. He cannot be still if my life depended on it, he is bouncing a hundred miles a minute (as a three year old should). I have paid for classes and they did not do me any good (thank God I bought them on Groupon). However, a blogger started a photography workshop, class, thing?! Whatever you call it and OMG it is wonderful. It is only ten days, to the point, if you have questions they are answered, and it is at a reasonable pace. The best part it is FREE! Photography is something that can get very expensive very fast. Another plus they also teach you how to take great pictures with your phone! (Info for the site and is at the bottom.) Anyways here are a few of my pictures (taken with a camera).


I am trying to figure out how to blur the background. I am still working on this.
I was working on the lighting and forces. LOL Okay I was mostly working on how to hold the camera.
I am not going to be winning any awards, but my Facebook feed will have more awesome pictures of Noah. We are only three days into the ten days so I will post my final review as well as some more pictures when I am done. What do you think so far of my pictures (I know they are random but I am not posting pictures of Noah so you get the random shots.)? Also I am now allowing people to follow my blog through email the news letter starts January. So go on ahead and sigh up (I promise no spam!)

  3. I'm rubbish at photography, but short on money, so it's good to see there are free ways to learn. Looking forward to hearing what you think when you've completed the course :)
