That’s some serious laughter!
It warms your heart to see such pure and true happiness in person, but to capture it and relive it over and over is really special. This is only one of the reasons I love photography so much.
I am determined to learn all that I can about exposure. I’ve read the same thing several times from a few different sources. I think it’s finally sinking in. I played and practiced and experimented all day. Thank goodness my camera will display all the settings used for each photo taken because I took close to 300 today! I loaded them on my computer then and looked at them on the big monitor. Much better quality today. I had some “ah-ha!” moments, too. With a little more practice, I think I’m going to be ready to tackle senior portraits!
The weeds are still happily blowing in the breeze in my rose garden, and the house is still a mess … but I took a day to lose myself in a passion. Seeing that happiness in my daughter made it all worth it! I’ve got a load of laundry to fold, and one more in the dryer as I type. I’ll just squeeze in some power cleaning during my breaks tomorrow. Maybe I need to make this a normal 40-hour work week so I can focus on some neglected areas in my life.
