The Blooper Reel

Yesterday I sent you Christmas greetings with the picture I put in our Christmas Cards. The Christmas cards that have yet to be mailed and now will just have to be late....oh well.

So, today I thought I'd show you the blooper reel...... These are just a few of the hundreds, yes HUNDREDS of pictures I took to finally get one that worked.

The first night, we tried in our pj's.
B tries to steal someone else's letter
And A ducked out of the picture altogether.

After about 30 or so pictures that night,
it was bedtime. I decided to give up and try again the next day
I took so so many pictures. Here's a few that
didn't make the cut.....

B was afraid of the letters.
Either that or he just didn't want to hold one.

Next, we thought that maybe he'd wear one.
No such luck!

And then he crawled away all together.

if you look closely, you can see his feet in the far right.

Not to mention the child with her finger in

her nose. ahem.

We put him back and he screamed some more.

Next we tried this. As they were laying down
M hit L in the face
Now we have two crying kids.

So, we thought we'd go outside for a few
shots in the snow
Not a great idea
We didn't stay out there long.

We did get a few goods ones including the one that I put on my Christmas Card. Which you can see here.

Ya'll have a fabulous day! We are still "Christmasing" in this house. Have family coming in town today. Be back soon!

How funny! The joys of photographing children! Thanks for stopping by my blog! To answer your question, no I didn't use a flash for the Christmas photos. I prefer using natural light and that is how I do it 99.9% of the time. For the ones you asked about it was dark and rainy outside so I had to turn on a light in the house and then bump my ISO up to 2000. Not the best conditions but it works for snapshots of my kids when I have no other option. I plan to buy a speedlight and umbrellas very soon to practice with a bit of flash photography. Good luck with your new d5000. I'm sure you will love it! I've played with it before (a friend owns one) and it is a great camera! Just do a lot of reading and learn how ISO, aperture, and shutter speed work together to affect exposure!! I hope you'll visit my blog often! Have a fab new year!
