I bought a macro lens to go with my Canon Rebel......and now I'm fully equipped to take great shots....well sort of. Thanks to Kyle I have a better understanding of not only the technical aspects of my camera, but also how to stage a good shot. Although I think plenty of practice is in order and I intend to do just that.
Here are the shots I did this weekend. We also learned some essential photoshop tools to improve the shot, these however come to you unadulterated.
A sweet picture of Chalon
Oz, which I'll be teaching later this summer
Aurelila, also later this year (staging by Kyle, but I'm learning)
The weekend was stellar. All kinds of creative people visiting my home, lots of laughter, huge fun, and Kyle took an amazing shot of Mark and I in our living room. It is a beautiful photograph, the kind Kyle seems to do so easily, and yet it is so compelling. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have this shot, a memory of one of those magical evenings that show up in your life from time to time.
