I See Monday

Today is the first day of the return of Photo Week! I’m hosting this time and I chose the 5 senses as the theme for the week. I think it’s going to be a challenge and I look forward to everyone’s snapshots.

I wanted to get an early start but this weekend was packed full of wedding activities for some great friends of ours. I hope to get back on track with taking pictures tomorrow afternoon.

This is Nate seeing his beautiful bride for the first time. Their ceremony was amazing and you could just feel the love in the room.

This is Hubby. He’s actually watching another groomsmen play piano. I have to admit I post processed this picture a bit to black him out. I don’t usually do that (especially for Photo Week), but the original came back with some weird green feedback on his face. He has the longest eyelashes EVER.

Be sure to check out the other participants this week (let me know if I missed you)

    What a great post! So informative! I have a Nikon D40x but have still not read the entire manual! I will try this this week as many of my pictures are taken at nighttime too.

    This is an awesome installment. I have the D60 and am still learning by playing with it. Excellent tutorial, thanks so much!

    Great info! Unfortunately my Canon doesn’t have a flash adjustment, but tomorrow I’m going to post about the world’s cheapest diffuser I made for it… can’t wait for the next topic! 🙂

    I am clearly almost 7 months late commenting on this post but I just came across it 🙂 I wanted to share a little trick with you. (My photographer friend shared it with me) All you need is your camera and a white paper plate. Just cup the paper plate right in front of the pop up flash (which should be popped up obviously)and take the picture. The paper plate bounces the light up and off the ceiling preventing the horrible washout of items in the front and darkening of items in the back. I also find that setting up a white piece of poster board right behind the object and then using this little bounce trick really helps. Happy picture taking!
