Me and My Shadow

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Even though it makes me rather uncomfortable, I have been trying to get in front of the camera now and then. It is often said that we as moms are always snapping pics and recording memories, but we are often absent from those because we remain behind the camera. 
This is very true for me. How about you? 
 So, I am challenging myself, and you! to get into the frame at least once a month. I know that later in life I will be so glad that I did. Even a phone pic counts. 
Just get in the frame!
If I can do it, then you can too ;)

Here is one of my first efforts. I have not found a wireless remote that works with my D800, so this was shot by remote with my D5000 and the ISO cranked up (no excuses!)
 I tend to like the grainy film look though, so I don't mind the noise.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous mama and daughter image. You both look great! I agree with you about getting in the frame, and I want to do better. I just haven't figure out the whole remote thing yet.

Love the shot and can't help but be a little green about the 800:)

It's a gorgeous photo, I totally know what you mean, I have been trying to get in front of the camera more as well.

What a sweet photo to look at. Moms I guess are always at the back of the camera. Most of our pictures are my three boys, two little kids and my hubby.
