Practicing Photography

My sweet cousin asked my sister Maggie and myself to photograph her wedding this coming August! This is the spark I’ve been needing to light the fire under my butt to learn more about photography and how to use my camera!

I’ve been following this 31 Days to a Better Photo blog series, and I’ve gotten more comfortable with using the various manual settings on my camera! I use Adobe Lightroom to edit my photos, but I want to begin with high quality photos so that editing will enhance the photos (instead of “fixing” them).


I’m working on fine-tuning my still life photography so that I feel super comfortable with using the manual settings, but I really need to get some real life people to practice with! Does anyone want a free photo shoot? Seriously, if you do, let me know, I’d love to spend a few hours snapping away with you!

Here are some pictures of the Peas and Thank You Chocolate Chip Zee Bars that I made (again) this weekend! These pictures have had minimal editing. The only thing I tweaked was the white-balance. That’s still something I’ve gotta learn how to tweak while I’m shooting… The pictures below were all taken when I was messing with the aperture of my camera- I wanted to nail that “blurry background” look that I love so much!


And here are a few more pictures, I just love my husband and my dog!
