Busy With My Camera

Last week I had two photo shoots, it was great fun. As you have seen I am always taking photos of my children; I am a little obsessed with them if you hadn't noticed but photo shoots are always challenging and exciting in different ways. Click here to check out the cute kids I got to photograph; one was floppy and the other one on the move.

I am no expert at photography, quite the opposite but I do believe that good photos are a result of understanding two main aspects: how to manually use your camera to suit the environment and how to utilize light. Obviously, I totally droll over super fancy cameras but you don't need a camera that will bust your budget to take a great photo. Really, you need to read your camera's manual back to front, inside out and upside down;) time to practice and a desire to learn.

These two photos were taken the other day while I was nervously perched very close to a praying mantis. They are freaky little insects and the entire time I was nervous that it would propel itself forward into my hair. Luckily it did not move.
