Instead of some outtakes, how about some reasons why Super Target is not a Super place for pictures of your kids. (Are my little pointers helpful in any way...or are they just boring)? If I should just post my picture and be on my way, feel free to tell me. ;-)
1. Even though fluorescent lights look bright, the camera reads it as very low light. So that's bummer #1.
2. For close-up shots of my kids, I can't stand my ISO any higher than 1,000. (I'm trying to find a noiseware program that I really love). This contributes to the bad picture quality; but otherwise there wouldn't be enough light.
3. My actual settings for this picture: f/2.8; ss 1/160; ISO 1,000
4. My dream settings for this situation: f/5.6 (at least); ss 1/500; ISO 100-200 (But you can't do that because your picture would be super underexposed).
This picture might not be a masterpiece, but it is 100% real life. We are at Super Target at least 4 times a week, and you'll see my kids looking just like this. :-)
Oh! I almost forgot. One more thing to share. You might be wondering why in past weeks I've been yammering on about having a picture of the week; as in one picture. That's because I'd like to print a book of 52 pictures at the end of the year. Another reason: I just started a Flickr photostream, and having my Party of Three pictures so neatly in little rows makes me feel incredibly organized. (insert hysterical laughter here)
Check it out!
Seriously...how cool is this going to be after 52 weeks? :-)
Not to worry, parents and grandparents. Although my Flickr photostream is private, (I don't need one more thing to worry about keeping up on - ha!) I won't post anything on my stream that you haven't already seen on my blog.
And with that, I'm off for the weekend to be with family. Have a great one! ♥
