Friday has come and gone... about to go for a good soak... to wash away all the restlessness of the week and bring forth the weekend...
Since today is Friday I took pics of my son... I take photos of him every Friday to see his changes.. to let him see his changes when he gets older. I have done this with each of my children and it gets harder in some ways to get it done and easier in others.
Harder in that I have 3 children now and so many things I have to get done in a day. Harder in that I have new pressures put upon myself trying to become a better photographer of babies, infants and children. I would really like to do this on the side as the kids go to school. I read others' ideas on what makes a good photograph and composition.. just my time of reading things about photography is limited. I have so many interests it is difficult to find the time to read, practice and play with the film. I would really love to learn how to work my Adobe Photoshop. I think my husband's cousin knows how and hopefully she will teach me... she is in college so a good dinner will be a good trade ! :)
Easier in that I have taken so many and really enjoy doing different things- experimenting with knew found knowledge. I hope to pass this onto my kids so that they are interested in journaling, photographing memories and taking on the challenge of preserving information of themselves, the family and friends.
Anyway, today's shoot was short... my camera's battery died... I had my camera setting on something different than I thought... sooooo bear with my work as it is surely in progress!
If I could learn more then I would be able to put myself out there for photographing family and friends more... showing them the talent I know is inside me just waiting to come out.
I know I have been "called" to do many things- I think we all are in one way or another called to do different things, to learn and teach others about... I know for a time I was called to be a teacher of children of history and of ESL. I then was called to help other teachers. I still hear this call- to help other teachers become better teachers, for first year teachers not to run out of the classroom but back after summer enthusiastic about teaching another generation!!! oh, I miss this in a way but KNOW that God has called me to be a mother now... the greatest teacher around!
