365 Day Photo Challenge- Day 11

photography, Seahawks

So today I met up with a couple of my photography loving buddies Butternut Blonde (use the link to check out her 365 day challenge on Instagram) and NxNw Photagraphy, mostly so the two of us camera newbies (me and Butternut) could pick the more experienced and brilliant brain of the man behind NxNW.  We had a lot of fun toying with aperture and focus options, and playing with macro shooting a bit.  Oh, and more fun with remotes!  I’m not sure my shots today are any better right off the bat, but I’m certainly learning!

Nikon D5100, I lost track of which lens I had on, but I had a cool little macro tube shooting thingy that I’d borrowed, f 13, ISO 2000

The stitching on a Seahawks hat....seems appropriate after yesterday's win!

I have a thing about sparkly things. Ooooo….Sparkly!

Working out the timing of the remote control.  Yeah, it’s all me.

365 Day Photo Challenge- Day 10

kids, photography, Seahawks

So…GO HAWKS!  What a great game.  It’s the first one this year I’ve gotten to sit down and really watch, so it was super fun!  I’m glad they won or my hubby would never let me watch another game.  True story.

In other exciting news, I got a remote for the camera this week.  So several of my shots today are me trying to figure out how to make that work.  Maybe not some of the best shots I’ve ever taken, but still pretty fun.
