In answer to my desperate plea for help in mastering my digital SLR, renowned photographer, Jenny, invited me to a photography workshop today.
I had to change batteries midway through 138 pictures...19 of which were a pumpkin on a white chair.
(I actually think Jenny took this picture. Oh well.)
I'll probably dream about ISOs, Shutter Speeds, White Balance and Apertures. But I now know how to take pictures in all lighting conditions without a flash! Awesome.
My goal is to take better pictures of my grandkids. All the other girls were in the early stages of starting their families and therefore very young, hip and adorable.
I felt very matronly.
But that's my excuse for not soaking up all the information from the git-go.
After four hours of lecturing, finding the right buttons on our cameras and changing our settings, we had an hour to practice on two handsome 3-yr. olds.
This little guy was a pro.
He went right to work, pretending we weren't even there.
The second model was a little more reluctant.
But look at that cool cowlick!

I'll post more on my Facebook page, along with my critique. And I welcome yours.
A big "thank you" to Jenny and Ashley for your expertise, advice, tips and never-ending patience today.
And to Jenny for driving the carpool to Muskogee. I'll drop a hint to Santa to put a GPS in your stocking.
