Thursday’s Three: My camera is here!

AND: I don’t know what I’m doing! Ha! I can’t remember anything about ISO this and manual that. Hmmm… I guess it’s been about 6 years since my last photography class. Here’s the very first photo I clicked with my new Canon Rebel XSi:

This brings me on to my Thursday’s Three:

1) Simplicity’s photography classes. I’m taking her upcoming class that starts on the 6th. Perfect timing for my new camera! I need to pull out my old photography textbooks… maybe it will help me figure out what I’m doing! One thing I love about her classes: they are inexpensive! I thought they were going to be way out of my price range, but I only paid $25. Her next class: Light, focus, crop, and perspective. Starts October 4th. (By the way: you still have 2 days left to sign up for her September class!)

2) I was recently e-mailed by Okkatots. They wanted to let me know they have baby carrier that they are giving away on their blog. I’m VERY interested in this carrier. I currently use, and love, the Ergo Baby carrier. The downside of my carrier: you can’t carry your baby facing forward. This drives Ruari crazy! She likes to see what’s going on but, she can’t while facing me in the Ergo. I’m going to share a few photos with you guys, because there are so many great features to this carrier:

3) My new favorite “Baby-Blogger”: Future DILF-in-Training. We’ve been neighbors on Top Baby Blogs for some time now, but I just haven’t had the time to explore his blog yet. I’m so glad I finally did! There is SO much to explore on his blog! Beautiful photos of his family, food, art… and then a very funny (and silly) photo series: Conceived and Composed. Please give this blog a visit! I’ve added his blog to my feed list. Yay! Here are a few of my fave photos from Future DILF-in-Training:

“Almost there.”

Guard duty.

“I told you we were being followed!”

A little reminder: today is the last day for the photo challenge: Self.
