Cross your fingers and pray

The other day Snapfish.com had a promo where you could print 300 photos for $3 so I thought I would take advantage of this offer and print out some of my photos that I have taken recently. My entryway has a frame that holds six photos and the pictures hadn’t been updated for about 2 1/2 years. I was extremely excited to get my photos, and when they came I quickly opened them up and started flipping through them. I was mostly happy with the majority of them, but quite disappointed with a lot. For some reason they came out extremely noisy, or grainy and I’m not sure why. I know if you have your ISO setting too high then they tend to be more noisy but I know that wasn’t it.

As I was talking with my husband and venting to him he says to me, “I may be way off here, but isn’t that what photography is about? You take a lot of pictures and hope that most of them are good?” To which I responded, “yes if you don’t know what you are doing, but I want to be amazing, I don’t want to be the type of photographer that sets up the shot, messes with the camera settings, and then crosses my fingers and prays it turns out good!”

Here are some of my favorite photos I have taken while practicing in Manual the first is edited, the other is straight out of the camera (SOOC)

I probably should have cloned out the mess all over his face, but I love how this shows his personality

I love the sharpness of her face and the blur of the background!
