Welcome to the #52Snapshots of Life photo challenge, the place where I lament about the photo I didn’t get, and whine about my photography skills and crappy old camera! This week’s theme is “Sky”, and I really wanted to get a photo of one of the dogs’ cute faces with the sky as the background. There’s no way I was lying on the ground to do this….there are bugs there, you know! I decided I would try to lie on the deck instead, and Luke would be my subject since he’s the most cooperative. Wrong. When the Momz lies down on the deck, that seems to be a signal to Luke to ATTACK the Momz and lick her to death!
It was fun though, and I was laughing so hard….but never could get the shot. The weird thing was my hubby came home in the middle of all that and never even asked me why I was sitting on the deck laughing. This leads me to believe he is used to odd behavior from me (or just thinks I was drinking wine again). So I went for my second idea….nature….and decided to try for a shot of our pretty apple blossoms against the deep blue spring sky. Except, when I downloaded my photos to the computer, the sky wasn’t that blue, and the leaves weren’t that green! Is it my camera, was it too bright out, or do I just suck as a photographer? Anyway….they make software for people like me, and I used PicMonkey to add saturation to the colors and enhance them. I then decided to add a frame because it really seemed kind of boring.
I wonder, will this challenge make me a better photographer, or will it just cause me to spend more money to buy a new camera, which may or may not help? 🙂 It’s all in fun…I really am enjoying it!
