Today all the kiddos went to Nana's house, Bill went to help a friend do reno's on a room and I went out with a girlfriend :) Who could ask for more......shopping, lunch somewhere that does not give out toys with the meals, and Sex and The City 2!!! What a great day :) And in honor of SATC I painted my toe nails pink, I could have been like the old lady in the theater with the tiara and pink boa but I went for the more subtle :)
More homework :) Don't worry class is all done at the end of June till next fall so soon you will get to see lots of pictures of the kiddos again. For now you get to see light trails. What are light trails you may ask? They are the lines of light made from passing cars, truks, trains etc. When you slow your shutter speed down enough you get the trails of lights and not the actual car or truck in the picture. Tonight was my first attempt at it. I stood at the end of the driveway for over 45 minutes and in that time I got ONE transport truck go by :( Doesn't make for a very pretty light trail picture when there is no TRAFFIC! This would be one of those days I wish I didn't live in the middle of nowhere.
This weeks assignment for my photography class was to set up shots. So today I made Ty some soft boiled eggs for breakfast but before he got them I took a few pictures with the cute little egg cups my mom brought the boys the last time she came to visit.
Then after I took the pictures Ty got to enjoy the eggs :)
I am SUPER behind in my blog again, so no big stories with all these pictures so I can get caught up. So instead you get to enjoy just the pictures. Here are a couple from class tonight. We were experimenting with bracketing but I didn't go to in depth in to what I was taking pictures of since I was being eaten alive by black flies.
Today we dropped all the kids off at Nana's and went to Cochrane for the day. Bill went to a friends house to help renovate a room and dropped me off at my friends funeral home to visit and help out. I spent the morning playing in the flower beds and laying down mulch with Carrie. Then it was off to Timmins to get insulation for the room. When we got back a friend of Carries met up with us and she had kindly volunteered to help me out with my assignment this week for class. We are working on portrait work for this week so I needed a few guinea pigs :) Lucky for me both Brooke and Carrie are pregnant so I got to work with some big bellies!
Brooke was a GREAT model! After taking some of here I snapped a few of my beautiful friend Carrie all dirty and covered in mulch from the garden. LOL
We then took a little trip over to Carries Parents house because I still needed a few more shots for class. Her parents were wonderful and such fun to take pictures of!
How fun are they???? Father and daughter had to compare bellies.......LOL
I had a great day and got to take lots of fun pictures!
Well I don't know if I would call it fun.... Bill had to take the garbage to the dump today. We don't have garbage pick up out here in the boonies and no longer have anyone to do it for us like we used to so it has become one more thing on Bill's "to do" list.
I went along for the drive and had my camera with me. My dear husband thought I was nuts but I was hoping to see a bear at the dump. No such luck today though, lots of seagulls having a feast though!
A few more today in Black and White........ class tonight so a new assignment!
And that will be the last of my black and whites taken straight of the camera. I think I definitely prefer to edit them the way I want not let the camera decide. But it was interesting to find things that worked as black and white and showed lots of tone.
As for my battery.......I had to borrow my teachers charger and my new one will be in the mail very shortly :)
