A new lens

I'm renting a Nikon 70-200 2.8 lens and tried it out for the first time today, my gosh, is it HUGE! But I think I might like it with a little more practice. My girls are willing models lately, and so are their friends so I may as well take advantage of it. We're going out again tomorrow to get some more shots.

Last Class

What to do? Don't know yet....I'm SO new at this!

Another recital

but this time for voice...she loves opera and her guitars, and kind of plans on majoring in music conducting or music performance. Her dream is to go to europe for a couple years for opera after college....gee, I think she needs to take her Mom with her! Click on my Youtube link on the right, (she is in the two squares wearing a white sweater) and you can see her recital songs, one is an Italian song and the other is Empty chairs and empty tables from Les Mis. Oops, having trouble with youtube so here are links: for O Del Mio dolce Ardor and Empty chairs and empty tables.

Dance, motion and blur snapshots

This will be our entire weekend, from Dance rehearsal to 2 performances, and yes, it seems to be a BLUR....
So proud of her.. 7 hours of dance a week with mono, don't know how she did it, but I'm glad this is the last week. Until next year of course!

Old Buildings and a Sweet Little girl

This darling girl is one of the prom girls' sister. Cute as can be!
Just got word today that I can get inside of the old school I've been photographing, for some more interesting shots. I'm so excited...need to wait for a real sunny day, to get some light in there..hope it's soon. I only have a few classes left and I don't feel as though I've accomplished
what I had hoped now it's hustle!

And gorgeous girls and guys. They had a blast and I was lucky enough to get to practice on them.

I'm giving them all a cd so they can print what they want. I'm putting the rest on my flickr hopefully tonight...I'm so behind in everything!

Busy Day

I spent the last 3 hours trying to remember how to upload pictures to flickr, and then played around alittle and figured out how to search tags, and it made it a lot more fun. So then I had to add my own tags so one thing lead to another and now 3 hours is gone...but it was fun!
My flickr slideshow is on my blog, just click it and the whole flickr will come up. Will add more later. Have a great weekend!

I've been looking at this warehouse for a long time and finally got some shots of it.
