Bethany | Portraits

Wow. It's been quiet around here lately. I am pleased to say that I am back. While I wasn't blogging about it, I have still been doing photo shoots. I will start by posting Bethany's portraits. Bethany is another one of my good photographer friends. We decided to meet and take some photos of each other for about an hour. Needless to say, it turned out to be a fun couple of hours!

Check out the photos she took of me here: Darlen' K Photography.

Tutorial Tuesday- What is a "point and shoot"?

This week's welcome:
Welcome to the first week of Tutorial Tuesday! Each week I will be writing a lesson, giving a challenge to go along with the lesson, and giving a list of further reading if you would like to keep learning about the week's topic. Also I will provide a way to pin the lesson so that you can come back to it easily and share it with others. 
This week's lesson:

 "What is a "point and shoot" and why would I need to know what one is?"
Let's start with the second part of the question, "why would I need to know what one is?". Well, knowing what a point and shoot is will save you some time and frustration in the future. Also, it's something you should learn about, if you haven't already.

Onto the first part of the question, "What is a 'point and shoot?'". According to "point and shoot" means: "of or denoting a camera that does not require manual adjustment of shutter speed, focus, aperture, etc." Basically, a "point and shoot" is a camera that normally cannot shoot in full manual mode. Also, if you are just beginning in photography, this is probably the kind of camera you have. Here is an example of a "point and shoot":
While point and shoots are not what most professionals primarily use, they are a great starter camera. Most point and shoots do have some settings you can change. For example, on my point and shoot you can change the ISO, exposure, White Balance, and a few other options. Don't worry if you don't  if you don't get what all these terms mean, we'll discuss them later on. So to some it all up, a "point and shoot" is a compact camera that is easy to use, does not have the ability to change lenses, does not normally have full manual setting available, and is a great camera option for beginners. 
This week's challenge:
This week's challenge is to take a point and shoot(film or digital) and then play around with it using automatic settings. Choose your favorite non-edited photo and link it up below:

Well you have seen her before and now you get to see her again... My beautiful sister Megann let me take pictures of her again. We went to the park the other night and I was able to snap a few pictures. What do you think?

at the park with J

The other day we met some friends at the park. I got to take lots of pictures of J(I abbreviated her name for privacy reasons). It was so much fun and honestly I wouldn't have been able to take so many pictures(or gotten J to smile for that long) if it wasn't for my sister Megann. She made J laugh and and kept her smiling.

Isn't she adorable?
ps. I don't normally like to put this many pictures in a post but I made an exception because I couldn't narrow the photos I liked down to just four or five. :)
