...testing a camera, that is. My very nice (and trusting) home teacher (who also happens to be a photographer) let me borrow one of his cameras over the weekend. I shooed my models outside last night before the last of the light was gone. Fun. I love this picture of Zach and David. It's one that I would NEVER have been able to capture with my point and shoot, the shutter speed is slow and this whole "shoot dad in the face" moment lasted about 1.5 seconds. My pennies are finally saved and I am READY to buy. I just don't know WHAT to buy yet. dang. suggestions welcome! One very humbling realization is that I have about a million things to learn to even operate this camera. No, I haven't taken a photography class, but heaven knows I need to! I think it's going to be a fun journey though. Feels nice to have a hobby.
(the borrowed camera was a Cannon 40d)

A family (who had .5 seconds before church and paused on the way out the door to squint into the sun) photo. I know, it stinks, but we haven't ALL been in front of the camera (together) for a bit!
