Photography & My Weekend

I just finished a photography class over at Big Picture Classes, Mastering Manual Mode by Elisha Snow. I don't think it's being offered right now but they may offer it again. I just finished up the 8 week class & I've been practicing my photography skills over the last 8 weeks. So I thought I would share with you some pics I took this weekend...on manual mode! I can't wait to scap some of these photos!

Our church had a family camping trip. This is a photo I took at dusk. 

Another one. What's camping without playing in the fire.

By the campfire. There is no way I could have gotten
a shot like this in auto mode. 

This is my brother & sister-in-law & their 3 little boys.
We did a "photoshoot" downtown.
I wanted to practice :)
(I'm trying out this pin it button, we'll see if it works!)

Aren't they adorable & there's a nother little boy on the way!
I just had to add the caption in the blank was just asking for it. 

Another one. I think this was the fave.
I used a free action from My4Hens Photography to spruce up this photo a bit.

And then me & my hubby went hiking this weekend. All by ourselves!
I never get pics of just me & my hubby so I brought along the
tripod & set the self timer so that I could remember our hike.

 This is my hubby....always being goofy.

But I do love him, very much! Trudging my camera bag all around for me.

Anyway, there's a lot more I want to learn but I think I'm off to a good start....after all, I've had my DSLR for 3 years now, it's about time!

Liz, I LOVE all these photos and can't really pick a fave from the photo shoot as they ALL are great!
Way to go and I can't wait to see them scrapped either ;)

Way to go with the photography! My favourite is the one of your brother and sister-in-law with their boys being goofy around them, that'd look brilliant framed. :)
