Molly Flanagan told me that once I learn how to use my camera manually, I will never go back to automatic mode. I'm not making any sort of disclaimers here, but in just 2 days of PARTIALLY manually (is that a phrase?) working my camera, I am starting to "get it" more and more. I have a long way to go, but I learned a lot about apperature, exposure and shutter speed this weekend and how they work together and it is so exciting!!!!
Anyways, if you and I were best friends, which I am just going to pretend we are, then I would share with you what I did this weekend, because, of course, you would want to know all the details.
So, sweet friend, (because that is what I call my best friends), we kind of worked a lot this weekend. I thought I was going to have some uninterrupted time to sew this weekend, but no, that didn't happen. Instead I worked on my lap top a lot for my mom's dance studio working on getting all of our accounts PAPER-less! Whoo. I'm losing enthusiasm.
The Mather Company, Inc. aka his job that buys/sells real estate. He left the house looking mighty fine in that bow tie...I had to take a picture!
Not too long after he left, my parents showed up for a quick visit.
Baby Boy napped and then we were bored, so we went to the job fair to get a job.
The job fair was inside a mall, that had one of those plastic play things that your child get's lost in and you hope that no one threw up in or pooped in and your child is lost meandering through it along with the hodge podge of other germified childrens.
No. Not really. But kind of.
My husband does a lot of music for our church. Did I mention he can play like 16 instruments? Yes. So he plays a lot of music weekly, but had this Sunday morning off and that meant we did a morning breakfast date to Ihop.
Small + Friendly ...I have no idea why I want to call your blog, small and curbly, but I do ... for recommending me to read the Pioneer Woman's site. It was uber helpful, so I went outside and practiced partially manually taking photos in Av mode. I was striving for that beginner's dream...the background looks blurry.
What the Heck is an Apperature? series was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I will never be the same. So, I took pictures of lots of really random things to practice.
