I can't say that I'm any good at taking photos - I'm a point and click kinda gal, more so now with the digital ability to see what I've got right away. I turned on my cameras black and white option and was amazed at how instantly my family photos turned into pretty amazing shots. I've learned that sometimes color can distract from the "feeling" of the photo. Here is a small bit of the many B&W photos I got of my kiddos playing in the fresh snow yesterday. I think I captured some great emotions.
My poor Monkey just wanted to run and play. "Enough of these pictures, Mom!"
Oh, Princess, you are quite the diva. She loves to have her picture taken.
Finally my three-fer! I was able to capture (starting with princess and going counter-clockwise)
ELATION, CONFUSION, & FRUSTRATION:
Princess - always smiling.
Monkey - confused as usual.
Bubba - just wants to get up!
It was pretty neat to turn off the color and to just shoot photos. I may have to use this function more often. Even The Tool thought the photos captured were more artful than the normal point and click that normally comes from trying to get all three hellions in a picture. I may have to continue with the challenges.
