On my mom’s side of the family I am the first to marry outside of the Lutheran religion and even worse than that- he isn’t Norwegian! Thankfully Tim has put in his time and eaten enough lefse and butter to be considered an honorary Norwegian. It was hard work, but he managed to to survive. He is a better (albeit slightly more artery clogged) man for it.
I have drank Guinness in the Gravity Bar at the top of the Guinness factory in Ireland and I have participated in a St. Patty’s day fun run.
depth of field. I am starting easy by working in the macro setting. Of course being a stay at home mom learning how to use a camera, I have to sneak in practice shots whenever I can. The subject matter of this photo revolves around their toys instead of something classy like a lone dirt road with a vanishing point or a bowl of fruit or a vase of flowers… yeah no time for that. Today I feature a purple, flame decaled Hot Wheel car.

ISO setting. So as I promised myself I am using the DPP to learn to use my camera. In these photos I adjusted the ISO setting so my photo could be less blurry. In return for the sharper image I get a grainier image.
Its a trade off… No blur of clapping hands but the graininess makes the image… grainy. (Elise was up a lot last night, Patrick has a fever and the direct result is that my vocabulary dropped by 20%)
What do you think is better? Blurry image or grainy image?
I feel that it is important to add that these were as far from posed as possible. Elise has recently fell in love with that blue chair that was mine when I was her age. She also has become an extreme sport snuggler. She dives at things – dolls, people, blankets with a fearlessness that could injure her in a serious way and latches onto them and loves them up real good. She rubs her face on them. Smothers them in open mouth kisses. Squeezes them with a python like grip. I have a feeling that as she grows she will have an intensity about her that will be matched by very few of her peers. Lets hope that she uses that intensity for good rather than evil.
