News Flash

News flash: I like to take pictures of Jax.

you say. I hadn't noticed.
I know, I know, this is hardly a news flash. But what you may not know is that for the last month or so I have been using the manual settings on my nifty big camera; I have to take so many pictures just to get a few that come out well. Monday we went down to the end of our driveway to let Baxter play in the little stream that runs through our property, and I couldn't resist the opportunity to try to get good shots of Jax in natural light.

It's harder than you'd think, especially in a spot where there is light and shadow.

I have to change the setting as the sun goes behind a cloud, or if he moves out of the light.

It's challenging, but really rewarding, and I think that having all of these pictures of him later will be so gratifying, as will my hopefully improved photography skills.

I hate shadows!!! I have been trying to edit one stinkin picture of mine for 3 days now. I can't figure out how to fix the shadow and I know it's possible while editing.

Love the picture of his eyes!

yay for manual setting. It's really much harder than I anticipated. I took some lame pictures last night and they just didn't some out well.
