Photojennica - Selecting a Lens -

In part one I told you about what cameras I recommend. Now we’re heading over to learn about what lenses are best {in my opinion}. First you need to know what your subject is. Are you photographing people? Children? Food? Weddings? This really is too big of a subject for one lil post but I’ll expand on this later. If you’re really just starting out and already spent all your money on your camera then the first thing you need to do is read the manual. Don’t get all focused on lenses. Learn your camera first. Just play around with the kit lens for now.

As you’ll see, the lenses I recommend are costly. But what can I say? Some girls like shoes and clothes and pedicures. I like glass. That’s why you won’t see me in front of the the camera too often 😉

I just spent the evening chasing my toddler around for you guys. I want to show you the difference in lens selection. First up is the 18-55mm kit lens.

The Silent Giving Challenge -

Y’all, I love you, you know that. I have a huge heart for those who are suffering. And I know you do, too. But this ice bucket challenge has really rubbed me the wrong way. Continue Reading…

My oldest daughter, Emily, has entered sixth grade this year and will be taking a class on video production. Dang I love homeschooling!

When we were dating my husband would tell me all about his video production class in high school and he’d show me videos upon videos that he had been a part of. Maybe, if y’all are extra nice to me I’ll share some of those 😉

I knew we would want video making to be a big part of our family. Since our dating days I would film all of his football games that he coached. Next he would take all the footage and make an end of the year video for all of his players. I’ve been an enthusiastic photographer since 2005, having won contests and have been published in two books. Then with smart phones we’ve been able to film a lot, but it just wasn’t the same. I’m thankful for the short little clips but I miss the long videos. I do not, however, miss the vhs tapes. At all. And my camera has gotten A LOT heavier since the beginning.

Out of the Valley

August 11, 2014

We sometimes have deep struggles in life. They seem like they can go on for days, months and sometimes years. Here we are always serving others and no one is there to serve us. Not that we would tell anybody that we’re in need, of course.

And sometimes all it takes is a little change in perspective to see our blessings and our purpose.

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:9-10 ESV) Continue Reading…
