Photo Friday.....#1

After receiving my LOVE MACHINE on Christmas morning, I have become the "crazy photo lady!!  And when I say crazy, I mean snapping 700 pictures over the course of one weekend...or sometimes one night...Seriously....I'm not kidding!!!  Because I am an amateur it takes 700 pictures to get 10 good ones!  (come know what I mean!!)  I have such a LONG way to go, but I'm super anxious to learn everything I can about my camera, and photography in general....I have been reading the manual for goodness sake!!  YES!!  you heard me correctly...I am actually READING!!!  What can I say??  It's a hobby that I'm quickly falling in love with!! 

 I have decided to designate Friday's to show off my favorite pics of the week!!  This way I can not only journal things that are happening in our life, I will be able to look back at these pictures and see my starting point.  I will be able to track my improvement....and maybe give you some tips along the way!!  See...i'm not only thinking of can benefit from this too!!  So here we goo....

Puddles and Bubbles.....

You can only sit in the house for so long watching the rain......Julia and I decided to go out and get a little muddy!!

You can't play in the rain without matching rain boots and umbrellas!!

This looks like a fantastic puddle to jump in!!

Look at that splash!!!  I LOVE the shutter speed on this camera!!  Don't ask me the settings....I have no idea yet what I actually did to make this picture turn out! haha....As stated earlier...I'm still learning!!

Splash take 2 .....

Splash take 3......

Where did she go???

I love the composition of this picture!!

Now what do you do after getting muddy on a rainy day??  That's right!!  You take a bubble bath!!!!

This was Julia's first bubble bath!!!  Why not sooner?? I have noooo idea!!  She loved it!!

Gotta wash that face!!!

bubbles in TWO hands....WOOOOWWWW!!!

We have to share the bubble love with Bailey!!

now how sweet is this!!!  A perfect picture to end our first Photo Friday!!

All pictures were taken with a Nikon D7000.  Lens-50mm 1.4.  Don't ask what shutter speed...apature....or ISO...because I don't have an answer for you!!  I literally take a pictrue, and mess with buttons...take another picture...and mess with more buttons!!  After I study the pics I will let you know how I got there!!  Until then, I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and I'll see you next Friday!!
