This afternoon, my good friend and fellow photographer, Paul, came by to share with me some photographic techniques for outdoors shooting. I learned a great deal about lighting and posing. It was a fun afternoon, and Amber was very gracious to endure the posing pain as we tried different techniques.
Another photo of Amber taken outdoors using the techniques shared by Paul.

A trip this morning to the Bolsa Chica Wetlands proved to be a great photo opportunity. I met up with a few friends from ACES camera club. It was very foggy when we arrived, but within an hour or so the wildlife started their morning routine.

This photo was processed through PS as monochrome and then had some filters applied. I love the creepy swamp feeling this photo ended up with.

A great time with friends!
Time for breakfast!
An assortment of little critters everywhere. This HUGE spider was biding time waiting for breakfast. This small version of the picture does not do justice to the complexity of the web. The dew on the web was a nice addition.

Another great day at Disneyland. This was Isabelle's second trip to the Magic Kindom, and I think she enjoy this visit even more than her first time. Stephanie and Hippie had a great time too. This is the photo they chose for their Christmas card. I think it is a great shot of their family!
Mom and Isabelle during her first driving lesson. I think Mommy looks a little worried that Isabelle is turning the car towards the ice cream cart :)
Grandma and Grandpa spoiling Isabelle with her Tinkerbell doll and princess phone.

Kimy's newest member of her family.
A late entry from a previous GGHS football game. Grove dominated this mostly passing game.
Isabelle sneaking candy from the bowl while grandma is not watching, but Papa was right there with the camera - surprise!

Tinker Bell jumping around the house (she doesn't fly yet).
