Photo Challenges 1.7.11
I haven’t entered in any photo challenges in a rather long time – December was just a crazy month (I even tried to make it not crazy, which was unsuccessful)!
So, here are a couple of photos I’ve taken over the past week…which just happen to fit some of the challenges this week, as well!
This one is for Simplicity’s White on White theme. I must say that I am loving shooting in RAW. I feel like even if my exposure in camera is awful and my white balance is way off, I can have a decent shot at actually fixing it (though I admit I still have a lot to learn about white balance…it’s one of those thing that didn’t exist on film cameras, which is what I learned on when I was in high school!).
This is Mikayla. She’s the adorable almost 11-month-old daughter of one of my college roommates. Since realizing we live just 5 minutes away from each other, we’ve baby-sat Mikayla twice and she’s been so much fun! She’s probably one of the most laid-back, easy-going babies I have ever met! I’m not totally thrilled with this photo since I had to use the flash (there just wasn’t enough light inside), and shot it on full-auto, which meant no RAW image (BOOO!!!). At least her cute adorableness makes up for the poor technical qualities of the image! I’m entering it in a new-to-me challenge at Live Every Moment. The theme this week is anything!
