Tag Archives: 365
Can you believe that I am six weeks into this 365?!? I’ve only missed a handful of days, so I’m proud of myself! Anyhoo, not much to say this week so here you go…
37/365: the boy wanted to bring those in the house. O_O
39/365: An intense game of puzzles
40/365: Sigh. My boy..
41/365: Lens baby love. I think I’m getting the hang of my Lensbaby Spark.
42/365: I thought I wasn’t going to take a photo this day, until i stumbled over these in the dark.
Its time to show off my 365 for this week!
I was a slacker this week and missed a day.
It was a stressful week, what can I say?
29/365: the toes….
30/365: I belong to a lensbaby group on Google+, so this was my submission…
31/365: I caught him, sneaking in……
32/365: Poor baby was sick all weekend. But still so happy…
34/365: Self Portrait after the shift from hell.
22/365:My Baby getting ready for school. I can’t remember what he was talking about here, but the expression… #priceless
23/365: Taken after a long day. Between moving, cleaning working, I was sooo done. Taken with iphone
24/365: Another casualty of my week: cleaning
26/365: practicing close up portraits…
27/365: A visit to Target
28/365 One hour before quitting time. I was exhausted. It had been a horrible day.
But an hour after this photo I got the news that I GOT THE JOB!!!!! So now, baring that they don’t find any crack on my drug screen and nothing shady in my background check, I’ve got it! Start February 18!!!!!!!!!!
To keep this interesting, I decided that this week, all of my photos would be taken with my “kit lens” and my *Lensbaby Spark .
For those of you who don’t know, the Kit lens is the lens that comes with your camera when you buy it. Serious photographers will tell you to get rid of it as soon as you get it because it’s just no good because of the variable aperture. The Lensbaby is more of a creative lens that I got at Christmas time as a gift to myself.
15/365: Kit lens: It rained all week. ALL week. But these bushes in my front yard were beautiful.
16/365: Kit Lens: It was so cloudy and dreary!!! But we live at the top of a hill now, Pookah is fascinated!
17/365: Kit Lens: This was on Thursday, after work. I had no energy to think creatively, so I took a photo of a breakout from Clickin Moms I’m reading. Hey, it counts.
18/365: Lensbaby Spark: It stopped raining for a while, and I took the Lensbaby outside while there was a peak of sunshine and caught this in the backyard.
19/365 LensBaby Spark: The sun came out!!!! I couldn’t choose between these two! Makes up for day 17
20/365: The kit lens: This past weekend was lovely…..
21/365:Lensbaby Spark. CDub. He let me get three photos this time instead of two! Making progress!!!
So what I learned this week, or rather reaffirmed for myself this week is that while upgrading your lens’ is a wonderful wonderful thing, you don’t have to have expensive glass to take great photos. For me, it was a reminder and a validation that I CAN take good photos with or without an expensive piece of glass. I needed that. I loved being challenged this week! I think next week, I’ll use one lens all week long! Maybe my *Canon EF 35mm f/2 ?
