Can't stop snapping pictures! Help!

A corvette pulled up in front of the neighbor's house and I set the camera to continuous shoot and totally pulled a paparazzi. The pictures were exactly like those you see of celebrities where they are coming out a building and if you flashed them quickly by it would almost be like a movie.

Until the neighbor girl looked and noticed me in the window. Then I fell to the floor laughing hysterically! Cool I am. Truly.

I deleted the pictures though without selling them to a rag so I guess I really am not a true paparazzi.

I took over 200 pictures over the last couple of days and have been playing with all the settings. I haven't quite figured them all out yet but the kids have been great guniea pigs and are willing to do just about anything.

Here are a few of my favourites.

This last one make me very happy because Jack always puts a fake smile on when I ask him to pose. THIS is his real smile and it is so much different! And now? I have a camera that can take pictures quickly so I can capture it.

Excuse the weird cropping I did, I was trying to minimize the view of the wall where you can see my wipe marks. DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT USE EGGSHELL FINISH PAINT. Ever. Period. See above noted picture.

I have more that I wanted to upload but Blogger is cranky tonight. Off to not do any work and hang out with my handsome hubby!

Okay, I LOVE your close ups. I get all happy when I get real smiles out of my kids too.

I SO wish I was there for your Paparazzi moment. Hysterical.

And color me SUPER jealous that you have a fast shutter speed. It's all I want lately!!!

Stacie said...

Laura B. said...

Awesome! Do play around with no flash shots...they're a lot softer. Also, you'll want to invest in a version of Photoshop. It's all downhill from here, Kami! I've already got my eye on a Lensbaby. *sigh*

Tim was making fun of me this weekend because I kept taking pictures of "whatever." I love it!
Sounds and looks like you are having a great time with that new camera.

Great shots!

Hope you're dug out of all that storm ... I feel for you, girlfriend! It is SPRING, dang-it!!

YAY for your new camera. I still love mine two years later (although it is a Nikon, not Canon, but DSLR is what I love).

And eggshell?? I thought I had eggshell on my walls here, and have no problem wiping them, I will have to double check that...
