Children

It’s Christmas time – well, almost.

There isn’t any snow, and you don’t quite need a coat outside, but it is time to send out cards. I usually don’t send out many cards but I know alot of people who do. It seems that photo cards are all the rave, and to have a photo card, you need a photographer.

Christmas Photoshoot

Enter Emily and her trusty Rebel.

This was my first child/baby shoot  and I should have brought a fuzzy stuffed animal with a bell on it.

I did learn a few things. Toddlers tire quicker than babies. Children will look towards their parents more often than the camera, so have the parent stand behind you and the camera.

Next Christmas, I’ll bring a toy.

I’m a Rebel

For my birthday I decided to do something special for myself. I went online, found my favorite shopping site – ebay – bid, and won a Canon Digital Rebel. It has megapixels, memory cards and a manual focus. Most importantly, it’s a camera that I can play with. Take outside to shoot with.

Here is my first shot.

Location: Southside, Birmingham, AL. AKA Home

Subject: Tim Stooksberry.

Purpose: Headshot for Medical School Application.

Now that I have successfully taken a picture of someone – it’s time to read the manual.
