This is me... and my new hair... which tells a LOT about me!! This is a self-portrait in the kids' bathroom mirror (excuse the bright colored tropical frog shower curtain in the background!)... taken to show my friend Amy that the new color & highlights really did cover all of my gray!! ;) It's shorter than I wanted, but it'll grow back!!! I'm happy enough with the color to ignore the length!
Oh... and in this shot you can see the new battery grip on my camera. LOVIN' it so far! It's great for portrait shots.
So... back to today's photo! I got a package from my hubby. He thought it would be fun to share a few of the products that he gets at his deployed location!
Sprite, Pepsi and Mountain Dew! It says the name in English on the other side of the cans!
It's kind of difficult to see the writing on the Snickers candy bar, but the ingredients are in English and some other language... possibly Arabic. *shrug*
I'm not sure of the camera settings... I didn't even look before posting them to be honest... because I used my brand-spankin' new external flash. I was playing with bouncing the flash & some of the photos with better focus weren't exactly the best light. Oh well... it's fun to play & learn!!! :)
And I've decided that this is the year I'm going to really get serious and learn as much as I can about photography. I searched high and low, read all sorts of websites and blogs, looking for a photography course that I thought would work for me. There are huge schools that would be great... just not very me. I've found one that I really want to try... now, if there is an opening is another matter entirely!!!
I also ordered some photo goodies (external flash, battery grip, diffuser... just to name a few) and I can't wait to play with them and learn more and more and more!!!! It's been a very long time since I've been this excited about learning something new. I have always loved photography, and now I want to really learn photography. It helps that my hubby is just as excited. He's always supportive, but for him to say he's proud of me... yeah... that sure makes me smile!!
