it’s always so hard to get bathtub shots the right color. i pulled out my speed light & think i did alright…

2/365 {macro – ghetto style!}

yay, so i did something totally new today! i was inspired by Jessica Holden‘s macro shots using the “poor man’s macro“. if you have two lenses & some patience, you can do it too! 🙂

here is my attempt:

zipper tab on my camera bag

more unconventional light

ugh, been forever since i’ve uploaded. i miss my 30 day challenges!!! since i’ve had some extra time, i’ve started logging back onto clickinmoms (gotta get my monies worth 😉 ) so i’m diving head first into all their challenges and contests.

this is a spin off from the last challenge, a creative exercise for using different light sources.  here are my shots…

crazy mudder

my husband and his superhero buddies are competing this morning in a crazy mudder competition. unfortunately, i will not be able to attend. i am pretty bummed about it, not only would i like to see them have fun in the mud as well as get some pictures, but i know Drew would love to see daddy “win the race!” we’ll definitely be there next time…
