Project ME

A little over a year ago Conrad & I were in the market for a new digital camera. The camera we had just a point and shoot camera. We had so many nice pictures with the camera. We also had some that we not so nice. A blurry Aubrey blowing out candles, blurry Aubrey jumping, and my favorite was the picture of the nothing because Aubrey had ran by so fast and the camera couldn't capture it. Yea those are some of the best! We looked around and came across this bad boy!

I love her!!

We have had her for a while now. I'm not shooting in automatic all the time, just a lot of the time. . . I think it's time to change that. I shoot in a mode that I have no idea what it is but I like the way the pictures turn out. I've noticed that sometime they don't turn out great and sometimes they do ... I'd like to know why.

Kathi Lipp recently came to our MOPS group and spoke about her new book The Me Project. She challenged us to write a list of things that we'd like to do in life. I struggled to write anything down. I know there was plenty of things I would like to do, I didn't want to write them down ... like admitting I wanted to accomplish these things. If I put them out there I'd have to do them sometime. I am comfortable where I am at. . . at least until now.

I'd really like to learn how to take great pictures.
I really enjoy taking pictures. I love love love capturing Allyson & Aubrey playing. Or Aubrey's train stamp from the library. Allyson's toothless smile. LOVE it!

I realize that this post is all over the place but I guess what I'm trying to get at ... I'm going to learn how to take Ah-mazing pictures!!


  1. Good luck! I have a Nikon D40 and I love it! You might be shooting in manual, if you don't have the settings correct your picture will come out a little off sometimes. I learned mostly from just playing with the settings.

  2. you NEED to do a saturdays snapshot class with amber! it is perfect!!!
