Anyways, I posted a photo from today to get some critique on a photography board, but I thought I'd share some with you all today as well. I think this spot did work well for getting natural light, but I'm still perfecting the exposure and focus when in manual mode. I also caught a ton of "light in the eyes" which is a sought after thing in the photography world, but I'm not sure if maybe I got a little too much light in her eyes this time! I'll practice in a new spot tomorrow with baby Finn, since we're finally healthy enough to watch him again :-)
Enjoy these "studio" shots of Miss Raya!
|This face reminds me of those sad animal shelter commercials where they play the mournful music and show you pictures of abandoned and neglected pets --- I swear this child is not neglected! ;-)|
|The key to dealing with uncooperative toddlers is to pretend their defiant glances away from the camera are actually intentional poses! hehe|
|I didn't get the focus quite right in this one....so of course that's the one where she's looking at me!|
|This is the evil look when you know she's about to be a stinker!|
|You just gotta love this kid ;-)|
And lastly, today I had another appointment to take 2 more bins of clothes into consignment (they only let you take 2 at a time) ...so I took one bin of maternity clothes (not sad to see those things go!!!!) and one bin of fall 0-6 month clothes. While there of course I had to do my sweep of the clearance racks, and I got some more good stuff....just have to share!
The key to shopping consignment is to not spend hours digging through racks and racks of stuff. I just do a quick glance through everything and play "I spy name brand!" hehe. I look for Gymboree and Gap mostly, but other fancy brands when they pop up too! I also only look in the s uper clearance section....I don't go to consignment to pay $5 haha. I shop the $1 racks!
Here are my goods from today:
|White seahorse dress, like new, from Gymboree and only $1! For Brielle next summer.|
Pink skirt is Pumpkin Patch brand, only $1, for Raya
The blue romper is baby gap, for Brielle next summer, and was $2 (I splurged :-)
Yeah, sorry for boring you all, but this sort of stuff makes me so happy LOL.
Thanks for stopping by today!
