September 411 +2

Holy moley, where did September go?

Can you believe I took 413 pictures in September? Wow, that’s a lot.

I seem to be getting the hang of making some adjustments besides just cropping and borders (not that there are any borders on these). Whatever. I have noticed that some of my photos are looking a little flat. I have been shooting mostly in AV which is aperture priority and I think that’s why they are looking flat. I think they are overexposed. So lately Ive been using manual mode and not feeling too overwhelmed. So between the manual shooting and the ever expanding Photoshop skills, I think my photos are starting to look pretty decent (if I may say so myself).

Here are some of my favorites (click to see larger photos):

Hunter and his Grandma.

Budda boy
Budda Boy – I spotted him a the Michigan Renaissance Festival.

family & friends
Those two are Hunter and his cousin, Brady playing in the backyard.

Breakfast of champions
Hunter feeding himself (two-fisted) and actually eating some of it.

the finger
Do you think he’s trying to give me the finger?

The love of nature begins at home

Sunset hue
The beautiful sky.

Some deer from up north.

Wow, there are a lot of my fav’s. I guess I should be posting more often.

Little Michigan fan
My little Michigan fan.

I love fall.

Mid-Michigan trees
Some trees in Gladwin from this past weekend. The trees are just starting to change, but I love the reds!!

up a tree
winding red
Some trees from the yard.

"Whatcha doin'?"
I love taking pictures of wildlife. This is a great picture I took with my new Canon 2x II Extender on my 70-200mm. This one shot makes the extender worth every penny.

Macaroni face
From this…

To this…
macaroni art?
… macaroni art.

I know this was a long post, but it was picture filled so hopefully that will make up for it.

I guess I should be posting some of these pictures more often.

In the meantime… welcome October!

    Ok, I always LOVE Bug pics. That goes without saying. But the picture upward on the tree trunk is just amazing. I also really like the picture of the Bubba Baby– the light and shadow is just perfect. What a great capture.

    I read that the light is perfect outside for a few minutes once per day, usually right before the sun starts to set. I’ve tried to wander outdoors later in the evening to see if I could capture something with this “perfect light”.

    You are really getting really good at this! If you lived closer, we could go into business together– S & S Photography. Lol!

    I can’t believe the trees are changing colors already. Awesome pictures. I love the one of Bug trying to feed himself. I have one of Aaron with spaghetti covering every nook and cranny of his body.
