If you like excessive pictures of someone else's kids....

then this post if for you!

So now that it's just me and my mom, I'll get right to sharing some of my practice shooting. I'm still in "basics" land... trying to nail focus and exposure. Lighting is an important factor, and reading the light is not as easy as I thought it would be. Before the pictures, in case any of ya are interested, here are two blogs that I've found helpful in this beginning of my photography journey:

The Coffee Shop Blog

Click it Up a Notch

And now, lots and lots of redundant pictures, because I can not decide which ones are the best. ☺

And at this point, it was time to put down the camera and catch the streaker!

I love your pics Kayte! You're so good!! I haven't noticed any in your pictures but something that really stuck with me in my class and something I noticing between good photographers and the ones that just make things look good and charge a fortune are the dreaded ankle cuts. You know, when your taking a full body shot and the pic cuts the person off at the ankles. Nothing drives me more insane. You're pics are soo good tho! I liked the 6th picture alot too bc i like how Leila's elbow, tush, and calf oh so perfectly, touches the edge of the wall. Little things like that make a true photographer. ;)

These are great! Thanks for the link, I've been to Coffeeshop many times and have used almost all of her actions, but the Click it up a notch, I've never seen that. What a great website. I only peeked but I am going to have to really take some time and read through. Looks like there's a lot of information there.
