I Learned 8-18-11

I learned that when you don’t have time to set up your tripod, asking your neighbor to be your tripod is always a good idea :O) We had our Dining Out last weekend and my sweet friend and neighbor, Tracy, was kind enough to act as our tripod. I set everything up and she pressed the shutter speed. So you see, there is no reason to not be in your pictures :O)

Now it’s your turn. What did you learn this week?? You know the old saying “You learn something new everyday!” Take pictures of it and share with us!! Some weeks you may learn a photography skill and want critiques. GREAT!! Share and ask for them! If you didn’t learn a new photography skill but something about yourself or life, that is great too! Post a picture and tell us what you learned. Can’t wait to see your pictures and find out what you learned!!

As always
1. Post one photo and tell us what you learned.
2. Link your permalink, not your blog address, check out the I Learned Tab if you need help with this.
3. Attach our button to your post
4. Ask for critiques if you want them and post your settings
5. Leave a comment on 5 other posts
6. Open Thursday 8am – Sunday 8am (Japan time) or Wednesday 6pm – Saturday 6pm (EST)

    what a great picture! I LOVE your dress, you look amazing! Of course having a man in uniform on your arm doesn’t hurt ;)

    Love this photo of you both!! Very nice.
    I can’t post my “I learned” what I learned is that I better check to make sure my card is IN my camera before handing it off to my friend to take pics!
    So I learned that an amazing moment can be missed by not doing your proper PCCs on your camera [ Pre combat checks to the military folks, but it works for all in life]
    1. Check your battery charge
    2. Check your card is inserted in the camera, do you have a back up in your camera bag?
    3. Check your lenses, do you have a lens cloth for dust?
    4. Make sure you have the connector for your tripod…

    simple and useful tip! I never find myself in photos… must hand camera to a human tripod more often! :)

    What a great tip. I need to try using my husband as a tripod sometime so I can get in on a few pictures of the girls.
