My Moody Fatih & My funny Aimee

Well all, more practice with the D80. These were all taken with my sb800 flash and without my fong on. I am getting better catchlights without it. I think the D80 likes my flash better than my D50 did.

Think I am really starting to get it down. I have trouble somtimes with the focus. I was worried for a little but it seems that I do better with my center focus point. I gotta get the hang of using the others . Here is my tries for today.

Faith moody, I really really like this one. THe stuff on her face is pink frosting from grammies cupcakes.

Vintage action thanks to Brenda, wish I would have lightened up her eyes on this one.

And then crazy Aimee...

Please ignore how ugly I look. I am in my laundry day clothes. This is Aimee's uh-oh face.

I don't really have a new picture today...

So you have to see my dog picture that I forgot to add yesterday. Hope you all like it. It's all i'm adding today. Here's Kiki. Our EVIL beagle who has no loyalty to us at all. If she could leave, I am not sure she would ever come back. When she gets out we have to chase her with a car. She is almost 3 years old. I don't think it's gonna get any better.

More practice. CC on my D80 work please!

So I practiced more. I wish I had gotten more practice in but today was a lazy day. I was kinda enjoying a break from work. I have 2 sessions to edit but a break is sometimes needed. Here is what I got:

I know his eyes aren't in the upper third but I didn't want to chop off his head too much this time. I may try another crop later.

I am a limb chopper and I am so terrible about this. I am working on it. Here are some flowers, they weren't moving so I had a better chance with them. haha!

Here is my Faith, she has been a tiny bit more cooperative with my camera lately:
Some more Faith, Aimee has turned into the uncooperative one now.
Color or BW? I know that here right eye(looking at the picture) is softer than the other, I just still loved this capture.

Heres Faith's reflection in a tiny puddle. This is the best puddle we got from the rain our wonderful meteorologists told us we would get.

Okay, I'll stop for now. Thanks for looking!

Faith with the D80

So DH lets me get the D80 (since my mom got the girls some clothes and I had been saving for it forever!) Here is one of my first images with it. What do you think?

Great catchlight with fill flash

I just wanted to say that the on camera flash is not totally useless. While I am trying hard to figure out how to use my SB800 for fill, I played with my on camera flash in full sun yesterday. THe pictures were less then pleasant but not because of the flash, cause my kids won't hold still and one picture made my daughters head look very large in proportion to her body. So all I am gonna show you is the catch light. You can see me and almost the detail of my face. I thought it was pretty cool.

Let me know what you think. I thought it was pretty cool. Thanks for looking even though I am a slacker and don't post often enough.
