Shooting Cameras & Waterguns.

I have been really reading a whole lot about Photography lately. I am slowly getting used to shooting in manual mode. Slowly that is. I just want to be that perfect photographer like instantly.
I have learned though that half of a good picture is the editing. I have always just used PicMonkey. It's free. (Well now it's $5 a month.) But I always got aggravated having to load each picture individually. It took way too long and I am way too impatient to sit and edit every single picture I take. I have Photoshop too, but I don't have enough time to learn that biz-ness. I can't be pleased, huh?
A friend told me about Lightroom a month or so ago. Finally, yesterday I downloaded a Free version to see if I liked it. Of course, I immediately got aggravated and went back to PicMonkey. But now that I have been playing on it more I have decided I LOVE it.
I played around a little tonight taking pictures of Dylan.
I still have a ways to go. I am only doing this to get great pictures that I can look back on and my children can have forever.
I have always had a love for photography and it means so much more now that I have kids.
Look at these cute little toesies!
Luckily Dylan was in a great little mood to let me shoot pictures of him as he shoot me with a water gun!
Soooo...what do you think. Did I do okay?
I'm sorry, I just love little booty pictures! :)
