I Shoot My Kids

Align CenterThe last Saturday of March, I went to an amazing photography workshop put on by my favorite photographer (and friend) Kim. This Learning Party was especially designed for moms (and grandmothers) who want to shoot their kids.... with their cameras that is.
It was so incredibly helpful to get some clear, informative guidance so I could FINALLY take my nice new camera off of automatic mode and get beautiful pictures without a nasty bright flash. After Kim gave us a detailed (and fun) lecture on the ins and outs of photography, she set us loose to practice what we had learned.
I learned how to take shots showing blurred movement...
And how to 'freeze' action. Thank you Becky for letting us take crazy shots of your gorgeous hair.
Here's Kim showing us how to take shots of running people where they aren't blurry. This should definitely come in handy with the little boy.
Check out this cool trick!
This shot of Beth (a fellow student) was my favorite that I captured that day. Look for better pictures in the future as I keep practicing the skills and tips that Kim taught me.

YAY! Your pics were so fun. You are a natural. And OMG, that pic of my hair is sooo crazy. I am surprised I didn't chip my tooth on my necklace...

I REALLY wish I could have gone with you to this class. I think I may try to go to another one in the future.
