where faeries bathestraight out of camera adjusted white balance in lightroom which I could have done on site by adjusting my white balance. This was a lesson well learned. If you get bored with the photography Mum, just let me know!

Today I took the snowflowers to the Arboretum so that I could take a few shots for my online class. I'm really enjoying it, although it is quite the challenge I must say! One of my assignments was to take a shot with a slow shutter speed. Let's just say, taking two ornery kidlets to a place where there is water and the heat index is 105 degrees....well, I should have known better! I set them up on a nice picnic blanket under a tree while I set up a shot...within, uh, maybe 26.5 seconds both of them were barefoot and up to their knees in the creek. The reason they were barefoot is because they had thrown their converse into aforementioned creek....hmmm...thankfully we live less than 5 minutes away and I ran back tonight to actually 'take photos'. Why don't I learn...toddlers + cameras = disaster!
I love the Arboretum...we're lucky to live so close

I have the same problem! Kids and taking pictures (unless it is of them) don't mix! At least at age 4! Great pic!
