Bubba appeared in his first Christmas Program this past week. It is particularly sentimental to me as this is my last child beginning all the memorable events. 8 years after my first began all these fun things, I am more prepared and wiser about what to capture.
I have a nice DSLR camera and I "semi" know how to use.
I have a nicer video camera and some mad video-making skills to make a nice finished product.
And if all else fails? I have an iPhone 4 that has a decent video camera.
Was I prepared?
uh. no. my battery was dead on the video camera.
The iPhone was too far away.
And even with my zoom lens, the lighting was terrible, creating an artificially colored look to my pictures.
no, there is no perfectionist qualities in me...what are you talking about?
I get so frustrated with the fact that I have a fantastic camera and I can't seem to capture a decent picture. No matter how much I read up on it, get advice from friends and websites, or even have someone else put the correct settings on it, I can't take a decent picture......
And visiting all these amazing photography blogs doesn't help. It just makes me jealous.
About half-way through the program, I set my camera down and just watched. I soaked all 2 minutes of him shaking his jingle bells and rocking Baby Jesus in his arms. And took a mental picture.
And that one? That one came out absolutely perfect.
