Creative Boot Camp Follow-Up

So during our little "vacation" last week I had a chance to finish up my CBC assignments...  I am still learning about how to work with different lighting and settings on my camera, and it is a lot of fun!  Since starting this project at the beginning of June I haven't used the automatic settings at all, yay!  I hope I can keep learning more and more as time goes on.  Here are the assignments and photos!

Ornament: something that lends grace or beauty

from our front yard, our "fireworks" flowers

I thought the hat fit into the "ornament" category, lending a little grace to my wild boy.

Ryan captured this shot, so I can't take full credit.  I just set up the camera for him... and did the editing. :)


I knew I needed a "Nukie" shot for this assignment.  Captured this one with Hipstamatic on my iphone.


It was a drizzly and dark afternoon, and it took me MANY tries to get the settings right for this one.

This one just explains itself, doesn't it!?

The round baby belly is mostly gone, but he is still a cute full bodied little boy!


  1. Wow - your images were worth the wait - beautiful.

  2. Oh I love them all!!!! You guys did a great job (group effort on the one and all that ;))

    And it of course is leaving me wanting the hipstomatic app even though my Droid phone doesn't have one... doh...

    Your boys are too cute!

  3. i love the "ornament" photo of your boy with the cap!

  4. Hi Suzanne,

    You just commented on my blog which I really really appreciate! I thought I would check yours out. Your boys are so adorable and it brings back so many memories.

    Love your comentary on losing the baby fat. I remember when that happened--especially around the wrist.

    Ahhhh!!!! Savor it.

    Your new friend,

  5. I love the drizzle one the most, but they're all lovely! I'm excited for you not using the auto settings too!! I wish I could do that.

  6. Yay!! You made it. Love your drizzle shot. Really captured that beautiful green so well. :)

  7. Oh my goodness, love your shots! All of you bloggers who do photography are inspiring me to really think about my photos. I love to take photos, and take lots because I scrapbook, but stuff like this is encouraging to think about pushing the boundaries.

    Love the last shot, so important to capture how they are changing since it happens so fast.


Please join in the conversation! Leave me a comment and I will love you forever and ever...
