Thanksgiving Bloopers

As I continue in photography there are SO many things I learn every time I pick up my camera. I typically tend to show you the good pictures. But along with the good, are some really BAD ones. Here are a few things I learned over Thanksgiving.

1. Do NOT put your tripod in your suitcase! Sunrise pictures NEED a tripod. So if your tripod legs break while in your luggage and you don't discover it until 5:30 the next morning when your setting up your shot because you can't wait to get the best sunrise picture ever- don't waste your time and go back to bed because without a tripod your pictures will turn out like this.

2. Make sure you are positioned correctly to get the correct angles. Kinley loves to put her hands on her hips and I was trying to get this shot all weekend long but I was totally in the wrong spot and it didn't work.

Same thing- cute picture, wrong angle.

3. You're probably never going to get 2 young kids to look directly at your camera. Either one will look and the other is looking at something else or vice versa. If I actually knew how to use Photoshop that I just recently purchased I could maybe fix this.

4. Don't expect a 3 year old to go longer than 30 minutes of taking photos. Because eventually he's going to yell at you to STOOOOOPPPPPP!

5. Make sure you have a really fast shutter speed to freeze motion. If not, you get blurry pictures like these.

6. Don't expect a 2 year old to be able to hold up a 3 month old. Poor Benton looks like he almost lost his head in this one. And again with the shutter speed. I was shooting in Aperature Priority but didn't realize that I needed to switch to Manual. Urgh!

7. Getting 11 people to look perfect in one picture is really hard. You may have to take SEVERAL shots.

8. Then there's going to be that ONE picture out of 20 that everybody looks good but of course the freakin limo driver didn't hold the button half way to focus the thing!

9. You definitely need flash in a limo

10. Last but not least- You never know what you'll get if you hand your camera over to your crazy brother-in-law. You'll end up with about 50 shots looking like this.......

These are really funny. I totally have a million shots of Nic that could have been much better if (fill in the blank). The kids have gotten so big. Love seeing your pics.
