Saturday Photo Sesh


I am so excited to report that I have my camera back! I have had my Canon Rebel for about 3 years now. A few months ago, I was taking a picture when the shutter never reopened. No matter how I tried, I could not get my camera to turn back on. The worst part is-it was out of warranty. 
Finally, we got it sent off to the Canon repair facility, and they shipped it back to me good as new! 
I am not a professional by any means, but I do love taking pictures! 
My first subject was Delly of course!



Then I was able to round up a few girls who wouldn't mind being my subjects. They are 3 best friends so this was a fun photo shoot. I also got to explore Heritage Park and Gardens in Live Oak and I found a few spots that would make great back drops in the future. I really wish we had more options for photo locations around here. 






Pressure to do a good job is so tough to deal with! I personally need to work on communicating what I want the person to do. It is such a balance with wanting them to feel natural while also giving them instructions. I'd like to learn how to instruct them without posing them too much.

I was so happy (relieved) to come home and upload the pictures to find good ones! Because I do not like that overly photoshopped look, I did very minimal editing of these images. 

One of my friends asked me to take pictures of her parents for their anniversary in a few months. I feel a little more confident after this afternoon, but I still want to do a lot of practicing in between.

I know my blog with benefit from the better quality of pictures! My phone camera just isn't cuttin' it!
