New Photo Ideas: Successes and Fails
When I was recently in Hawaii, I enlisted my niece who is 8 to help me with some new photo ideas. We had a lot of fun spending time together and making a list of the images that we wanted to capture.
As a beginning photographer, I am always trying to improve my skills. These skills include learning the manual functions of my digital camera, understanding design and composition, and challenging myself to be more creative. Hopefully I will inspire you to try some new things with your camera and learn from my successes and fails.

Girls Jumping in Air-Success (sort of)
|Although their form is not that great, these girls had fun jumping in the air (or at least trying to)!|
Holding the Sun-Fail
|Unfortunately, I need some more work on my night time photography skills. The photo is a little too dark and there should be more of a silhouette of my niece. I still like the concept so we will try this one again.|
Grains of Sand-Success
Washing Away Stress-Fail
Laying in Surf-Success
Flower and Ocean-Fail
|Although this photo is somewhat interesting, I wanted the flower to be in focus. Looks like I need to learn more about aperture. I think I had my setting too high.|
Now let’s go create!
