Garmisch Germany

Several weeks ago Justin had CE in Garmisch Germany. This jaw dropping area is nestled in the middle of the Alps. The girls and I left a couple days early and missed the snow storm. Justin took a walk and captured some amazing images.

Justin is doing a much better job at looking at things from an artistic point of view. I really enjoyed his pictures

Beautiful German Alps

It's always fun to reconnect. Justin attended Dental school with Steve and Jen. All three of them joined the military and are enjoying the benefits of living overseas. It's always fun to play catch up.

My Upcoming Hobby

Justin and I have to come an agreement. If I can learn how to use my camera (without the using AUTO) I can buy more accessories to accompany the hobby of photography. I have been working on understanding the basics and I decided to put the knowledge to a test. It was a lot of fun.
So I am excited to say these following photo's were NOT done on AUTO mode
This above picture was one of my last indoor shots. Lyndi is adorable.
Above is Ayla in one of my last shots.

I didn't post everything in order. Actually its almost backwards. My last photo's on top and my first ones on the bottom.

The above photo was one of my first shots. Lyndi was waking up from a nap, I pulled up the curtain and she had way too much light.

These were some of the first pictures I took. I took some adorable shots and then realized that they were a little overexposed. So I decided to turn down my ISO a little.

Ayla was standing in the direct sunlight you can see from the glare off her face.

One of the reasons I had the ISO cranked up and Ayla in the sunglight,was I wanted to see if I could take an indoor picture without the flash. I couldn't figure it out.

There was a lot of light in Lyndi bedroom. Someday when I get photoshop, I might go back and fix some of these pictures.

I promise I won't flood this blog with my practice pictures. I am starting my own photo blog. Bascially, just a place where I can critique my own pictures and hopefully see my work progress.

Bike Ride

Keanna has made some major strides in her bike riding ability. On Friday, we were able to take our first family bike ride with our little Lyndi.
It was a short bike ride. However, we hope that it's just the beginning of many more to come.

It's easy to take a good picture when you have an adorable subject
