I have said it before.... I am not a good photographer. I get so messed up when it comes to settings - I never remember when to "bump my ISO up" or "change my f-stop". I've had lessons, I've read manuals, I've had tons of great photography advice from friends who are photographers, but it still reads like a foreign language to me.
I seriously take 100 pictures to get 2 great shots - I drive my family batty.
Maybe that's why I did Instagram so much......
Bubba goes to school with this amazing photographer's kids and I see her all the time at drop off - she has such a knack for taking a great shot...she makes every kiddo look like a million bucks. Seriously - check out some of her work - it's jaw-dropping.
So when she announced a "capture a moment" photo contest, I was hesitant. How on earth can I take a picture worthy to even show her....yikes!!! But I really wanted to win....a mini day-in-the-life photo shoot with her. We haven't had pictures taken since Bubba turned one. We needed some gorgeous pics that only she could take. I was in. Photography classes at accredited online colleges should be able to teach you how to capture amazing photographs using the different features and settings of your camera.
So I followed Bubba around, but my ISO was too high and most of the 150+ pictures I took were grainy!!!!!! ARGH..
Here is a few from that day....
So I am in the contest....and now I really want to win......I mean really.......
So, I am asking you to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take 2 seconds and vote for Bubba & Sis - I submitted the picture of them hugging at the bus stop. It's not the prettiest picture in the collection. My sweet friend's picture of her kids playing patty-cake is amazing technically and pretty darn cute.... But again, my kiddos hugging pulls at my heart strings! And it is a moment that thanks to Heather, I will always have!
I'd appreciate your vote! Thanks friends!
