Welcome to my 365 Blog

In order to keep up with all I have going on in my life I'm combining this blog and my family blog. I will still make 1 post a day, every day. But I will use it to make a family journal/photo book at the end of November 2009 to document our year. It's just too confusing having 7 or 8 blogs to work on. Anyways, continue follow me at

Day 233

My birthday presents came today!!!! I got a new tripod (my old one was OLD and a bear), a polarizer (but will need to be changed out for one that fits my camera) and a SPEED LIGHT! YAY!!!!! Here's my first try with the speed light. PLEASE give me suggestions/hints on how to use this thing. I was bouncing it off the ceiling. Did it work? It's a huge improvement off of the shadow cast by my lens with the on-board flash, but still. What can I do to make it better?

I don't have flash tips, but that photo is precious! Yay for new toys!!

When I figure out my flash, I'll let you know! That thing gives me headaches! Adorable picture and i think it works, all except for her eyes. They need a little light in them. Maybe putting up the catchlight bouncer (white card) would help?

When you are shooting low light witht he flash in the house it is very hard.. You did a good job over all with this and I think the only way to get some nice cathlights would be to use a refelector.. She is such a cutie...
