Photography 101

After watching some YouTube videos, reading tips and techniques about our new camera (Nikon D3300), it was time to get some practice.  So, we decided to go for a road trip to Blackfoot and visit Grandma.  It’s amazing how much a nice camera makes a difference in your pictures and how complicated they can be….and as many of our family and friends, it can be an amazing but expensive hobby. Either way, it’s a great way to record those invaluable memories in your life; in our case, we are in the phase of big changes. So, if you don’t have a DSLR camera, I would recommend you to get one (which one? Well so far, our Nikon D3300 is a great one).

Practicing our newly learned skills.

Yumminess and fat, why not take a picture of this? (McKenzie River Pizza)

Beautiful flowers on mom's porch.

Sand Dunes

Since someone, who shall remain nameless (an Idaho native) had not been to the sand dunes...(cough...cough....Bar....fhh).  It was fun, to take pictures and continue practicing our skills. Celena and I are getting very creative. On our way there, we stopped at Prepared Pantry to get some baking goodies  and Manwaring Cheese. (it's not the best place for me, since I am lactose-intolerant, but I made do....I have some pills that relieve the monstrous pains, maybe TMI, but it's your fault for reading this.) Anyway, it was a fun little trip.

Mom and Bart, and Celena...;). Did you find her?

My gorgeous wife.

This is one of my favorites...beautiful.

We didn't find water in the desert, but we sure found beauty!

My supermodel and some guy that was allowed to take picture with her...:)

Mom and her Gucci shades....maybe not Gucci, but very fashionable.

For all the ladies out there........this guy is taken!

I told her to pretend she's happy...she did pretty good right?
I hope you enjoyed our pictures.  Don't forget to comment.  We have another great adventure coming up this weekend....after we can get over another looong week.  By they way, if you did not watch the US game against Portugal...sad day...so close.  Have a wonderful week! If you are not a soccer fan yet...it's ok, you have less than a month.  ¡Adios!
