Before you read my downer of a post...take a look at this little girl. Holy cow, she is so stinking cute. I have to say that those little curls are PERFECT.
Well, tonight I had a photography shoot with the nicest family and I was a huge flop! I had a great time taking shots at the Camden House near Whiskeytown, but was quite worried about how shady this spot is and to compound that...it was overcast today. Well, most of my pictures were all blurred!!!! How embarrassing! This family spent time preparing for a photo shoot, not to mention I am sure they were excited...and more than half the photos are streaked. Yes, I did check as I was taking the pictures at the histograms and quick glances at the display. I of course cranked the ISO up, way up...however...still too dark! So far, I have only studied natural light and not how to shoot with flash. Hmmmm, what to do....I can tell you this....I am super disappointed, not to mention embarrassed. AAUUUGGGHHH!!!
I am still trying to learn...but I can only do one shoot a week. I still have five more shoots scheduled this month, so I am sure I will learn with each shoot something new. Which is good, but now I am insanely nervous to try and afraid I will totally suck again! I hate failing!!!!
Okay on yet another note, post editing... My hubby has brought it to my attention several times that when I have been processing in CS5 that my images seem way too bright. So, I read through a couple of tutorials and did a couple of modifications on this image. Does anybody out there in Cyberland have a preference? Can you see a difference? Maybe tomorrow I will try the technique again and see if I can make it more noticeable, but noticeable in a good way! :)
