Oh Happy Day.

Noise. Blech. In my opinion, the world would be a better place without it. Of course, as a photographer, I’m referring to the noise that often plagues low light photography…. but I suppose, as a mother, this noise slogan could take on a whole new meaning ;o) You may remember my mentioning a thing or two about noisy photos in previous posts ….(primarily concerning birthday parties)….and you may also recall my mentioning of a coveted lens that is skilled in the art of low light photography. (And covet I did. Stare. Oogle, even.) Time passed….and then we booked a wedding. Wait — make that two weddings, with hopefully more to follow. Exciting and promising … and totally deserving of such a low light lens. So … here it is …. Happy Awesome New Lens Day!
I wasn’t the only one excited about the new lens — even my children caught the fever and started trying all sorts of crazy antics for me to photograph. Remember what I said about living with goofy clowns? I wasn’t fibbing.
Here we are in the dreaded dining room …. look, no lighting issues here ….. just a couple of break dancers?
Fast forward through swimming (which was fun — although it feels like I spent half of my pool time cleaning out the random leaves and debris that the wind had blown in. It’s incredible how much of a day with kids revolves around cleaning something.) This particular evening I had a mini grilling assistant, which is always appreciated…….
….he decided that burgers were on the night’s menu.
So, on behalf of my family, my business, and underexposed photos everywhere, I would like to echo Jade’s words to my favorite Boys In Brown (yes, I’m talking about the UPS Delivery Guy) — “Thank you for the new lens!!”
