Photography Lesson

One of the things I ended up putting on my bucket list was to take better photos. For me, the photos I take today are my link to the people I will love in the future.  I just hope to make them the best I can. So in an attempt to learn, I have signed up with a fellow blogger, Beth V Photography. She is providing thirty days for FREE photography lessons. She provides a new lesson every other day. It is not to late to register. If you are interested in joinging the fun, click

Lesson One: Old

ISO 800, 1/10, f /7.1
My birthday is this week. And when I saw all of those candles on the cake, I felt old. I honestly hope to get better and faster with this photography thing, I must have taken 25 photos just to get this one good shot. Who knew there was so much science in taking a quality photo!

Additional photos that I took:

ISO 800, 1/40, f/5.0

ISO 400, 1/15, f/4.0

ISO 400, 1/15, f/5.6

ISO 800, 1/1000, f/3.5
There maybe a reason why low light photography was not introduced in day 1!!!


  1. When you see "all your years" in one place, it does seem overwhelming....but just think of that as all your wisdom, all in one place...maybe that'll make it easier to look at?

  2. can you come over and teach me cake decorating classes? i'm attempting to make a cake for my son tonight and,'s not going well.

    I'm actually kind of in love with the dark candle photo-i love the look of the floating candles. great job! in low light, it might help also if you mess with your white balance settings. I'll be talking more about that in a couple of days!! thanks for joining up!!
