Models, Cowboys, Greasers, Ball Players, Cheerleaders and Pure Sweetness.
The last few weeks have been filled with lots of activity.
I've been on three field trips with my camera club since I got back from my sister's.
The first field trip took place at a park and we had live models to photograph.
It was so much fun and I learned a lot.
I also finally had a reason to use lightscribe.
I absolutely love creating labels for my CD's with the lightscribe technology.
I can etch the model right onto the label and personalize it however I wish.
I finally got the hang of it after the first two CD's.
I'm thrilled how it turned out and I was also pleased with my photos.
They may not be technically perfect, but I still think I did a great job.
We had one male model and three female models.
Photographing people is a lot harder than it looks.
It involves a lot of work but it is rewarding too.
This past Sunday I had the opportunity to photograph children.
Children have very short attention spans so it is even more difficult to get that perfect shot.
I fell in love with this one little boy.
His hair was so thick and curly and he was just so adorable.
How can you not love that hair, those eyes, that face?
I couldn't resist taking lots of photos of him, even when he was distracted looking for ladybugs
in the grass and ignoring all of us photographers.
I didn't give up. I got a good shot of him with his big sister.
Can you see the ladybug on his sleeve?
There were other kids and cute outfits and costumes.
It was a blast.
Especially when you've got a blast from the past.
Aren't they cute?
This little girl liked making faces.
She was a great model.
I love this picture. I think I captured the beauty of the little girl.
And Josh, the little boy is putting on his best outlaw cowboy face.
And then there's always baseball.
I've never seen a younger more adorable cheerleader.
I really enjoyed photographing the kids.
They were so full of energy and spunk and they did their very best to please us.
Also, this morning I went to the Las Vegas 51's baseball game for a photo shoot.
The stadium was filled with elementary kids from all over the Clark County School District.
I thoroughly enjoyed shooting the game and it was cool that I had a special "Press Pass".
I haven't uploaded those photos yet but as soon as I get a chance I will post some on my blog.
Joining the camera club has really expanded my horizons.
Never in a million years would I ever have thought that I would photograph models or sports or children.
I have met so many wonderful people who love to share their knowledge and help others grow.
It is so refreshing.
I've also had more opportunities to go to places that I would otherwise not be allowed to go.
So far, it has been an amazing experience.
