Day 70

I got my new wireless remote out so I could shoot some pictures with me in them. The kids thought the remote was fun! Here's one of my favorite shots...ignore the fact that the button pusher is terribly out of focus - my camera was set at f/5.0 to capture 3 of us sitting together, but that wasn't enough to get the boy when he moved 5 feet away.

funny practice
Apparently Nathan was alarmed at the thought of what Caleb might do with the remote.

It is not easy to get young kids to look at the camera, smile, and not do weird things...
Fancy, Nathan, and Caleb
(are you kids allergic to just sitting nicely?)

But there were these old folks who didn't mind sitting nicely (even if he looks a little stiff)...
me and my kenny  

They're not the best photos for lighting or posing, but it was just remote practice, so I'm not worried about that. I will work on the lighting later this week! Yay!! (I'm getting some new equipment soon.)

(The colors look weird in here - skin tones look grayish and the photos look dark. They don't look like that in PSP. What did I do? - Never mind...they look better posted on the web than they look in my blog editor.)
