Catching the Kids

Maybe Sam has some of the camera mastered, but I sure don't! But it's so fun messing around with that I don't care. I was going to test my skills as a photographer by trying to capture awesome shots of my niece and nephews, and most of them were so blurry! I did manage to get some of these shots. Hopefully I'll hone this skill before I have a crazy kid myself!

Pumpkin

Okay, here's the last picture I'm going to post of our cute pumpkin! Isn't the little owl adorable??? I thought this photo was neat because it is the first time that I've used the RAW image capacity on our camera. RAW images are kind of like the negatives of digital photography. They take ALL of the information sensed by the lens of the camera and save it in an un-embedded format. These files can then be used in Photoshop or another program to edit them exactly how you want them to look (like all of the details seen in the one below) with tons of details and everything, and then they can be converted into a .jpg or other usable format. Isn't it awesome? These images really remind me of HDRI photography. :)
