each day to read and learn more about taking good photos.
I've spent time over at Funky Junk Interiors reading her tips
and Modern Prairie Girl had a fabulous series of posts
that I printed out and am working my way through.
I still have that cocked~head~thing going on!
I'm discovering a side of me that I really didn't know existed.
When it comes to taking photos....do I dare say it?... No it
can't be!!! Yup, I can't believe it.... I'm impatient.
That my friend is a hard pill for me to swallow. I pride myself
on my patience. I have lived in an in process home for
almost 4 years now. Patience of a saint I tell you!
Yes, I'm laughing at myself as I type this.
Ask my dear mother-in-law. Almost every time we
chat on the phone and I update her with our progress on
the farm, she will say "Divorce him, no other women out
there would put up with living that way". It makes me
laugh every time. It sounds as though I didn't have a choice
in this adventure of ours.
If I recall, it may of been my idea and he was so good to go
along with it! Think we were both wanting the adventure,
not fully understanding the journey we were about to take.
Back to the photos. Donna over at Funky Junk has said it
in almost every post I have read on photo skills and yes,
Lara at Modern Prairie Girl confirmed.....
photo shoots are work.
But I just want to click and shoot and have our projects look
as good on here as they do in real life and gulp...
I want it now.
Again, laughing at this discovery and learning the hard way.
I was so anxious for you all to see the results of the
mudding and sanding job, along with the COLOR that
now lives in our little nook.
Despite the poor lighting created partly from the lack
of windows in that room and partly from the natural
wood ceiling, I jumped right in and started clicking
away. Imagine my displeasure when I clicked on my
post from another computer!
Oh my!! My excitement bubble burst!
So today, I'm a listening!

source: nikon.comI'm going to read the manual and learn what all these
settings mean and learn how to use them.
Mustering up the patience and bringing it to the table.
Maybe, with my next post my true colors will be revealed.
