I’ve been a bad blogger.
I have been slacking in my photo taking lately. How can I write a blog post without any photos?!
I would never consider myself a “good” photographer. But a few months ago my sister in law Jess let me borrow her DSLR Canon Rebel XT to take photos for the blog. After a few lessons, I am slowly becoming a better photographer.

|August 2011 with the SLR. Better, but yellow-ish lighting|
|September 2011 with the SLR and a different lighting setting|
I think I’ve become better at playing with lighting, camera settings, and angles. I think my next lesson from Jess might be in photo editing.
And of course food looks better in natural lighting.
|Shooting outdoors is always the best option|
Its going to be a loooong winter of dinners with no daylight.
Jerry has promised to build me a light box, and I can’t wait to experiment with it.
Speaking of pictures…..
I forgot to bring a camera to Mom’s house last night to take pictures of dinner.
Nothing like following up a post about photography with blurry, poorly lit photos taken with my iPhone
