Please hang in there with me on this new adventure! Word Press is way different than simple blogger, so I’m not sure I’m doing this right yet. I still haven’t figured out how to transfer it to here so if any of you have “simple” directions on how to do so, please let me know! I tried to do it once but none of my photos came though, just the posts and comments.
Things have been hectic around here for the past few weeks. It seems that there is never enough time in the day to conquer all that I want to do. I did however, add some curtains to the window wall.
The ruffles add to the charm from the chair, don’t ya think?
Mom paid a visit last week and I found the cutest trey at Home Goods. It was too rustic for my taste, so I gave it a fresh coat of white paint. I’m still not quite happy with the color though
The white really looks like a grayish white…but it is still pretty for grouping things on the coffee table.
I spent the day rearranging furniture, so things do not look like this anymore. I’ll post new photos later. I’m still trying to figure out about Word Press, so right now, I’m trying to get acquainted with posting.
I bought a new lens for my camera and a remote…thinking that may help with the sharpness. And it has! I’m still learning about Aperture, what ISO setting to use in certain lighting, and using all of the settings that are on my camera. I’ve had this camera for a few years and I’ve never sat down to really studied it until a few weeks ago.
The lighting in the hall is really poor so I’m really impressed with the quality of how this photo turned out. I will “get it” before all is said and done!
Taking photos with overhead lighting was told to me as an absolute no no…but look at the detail on this photo! I’m really loving the editing program that came with our new computer. That’s another story for later, lol. I spent weeks studying computers over which one was best for us and our budget. But I am really happy with what we purchased!
Using my tripod and remote really made a huge difference with my photos. When Marian was here back in September, with the photo shoot for Romantic Homes, she gave me some really good advice. I’m really thankful for all she gave me!
I’m really excited with how things have been progressing with my photography skills. I’ve never had the money to really tackle it how I would like, but slowly I am budging forward and some day I will get there!
On an overcast day like it was today, these photos turned out way better than what they have in the past. Having new knowledge and being able to use it has been thrilling to me!
I hope all of you had a blessed Valentine’s Day! I know I sure did….see those pink flowers to the left? Those were a present from my daughters. They’re Azalea’s and I can’t wait to plant them! Spring will be here before we know it, but I’m still hoping for some snow!
