I’ve managed to spend a bit of time this week actually trying to learn how my camera works rather than just snapping away and hoping for the best. Here are the results. They’re still not amazing, and unedited because I don’t really know what to do make them better. How would you improve them?
The girls set about planting some ‘trees’ on our bike ride. First they buried a pinecone, then put some sticks on top. I’m not sure what they’re expecting to happen next, but I love their imagination. The pair of them make me smile so much when they play together. This weekend they’ve pretended to go to football club complete with big brother’s old football tops and bags packed with snacks and drinks. We’ve served lunch on trays school dinner style, made space rocket blaster packs, written stories and put a marching band together.
I do love my funny, ever so loving, little girlies.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
What have you been up to this weekend?
Your pics are ACE!!!
They are lovely photos! I have no advice, I take most of mine on my phone and its pot luck what they turn out like – have a point and shoot type affair as well but far too scared to try a proper grown up camera.

Thank goodness for times were they do play nicely together. I often find gettign the three of mine outside is the best thing, their imaginations really kick in. Mich x
LOVE the pics. And love that you are spending time outdoors. x

I love children’s imaginations, so sweet to think of them planting trees hoping that they will grow big and strong one day

Lovely pictures, what are you using. I am in the market for a camera as the photos from my phone really aren’t good.
Oh they are adorable! Editing wise I use Lightroom which isn’t free but I do love!

I really should take more time to learn the art of photography …. you make me want to be better!
Awww, thanks Donna
Those pictures are fabulous! I wouldnt edit them at all!
Oh how sweet they are, and what lovely captures. I’d recommend using Lightroom or Photoshop, although neither are free. I believe that you can get them on a monthly subscription now, which isn’t too costly. Have you tried shooting on manual settings?
I don’t think they need editing at all Emma, you don’t want to look back and see them edited- they are gorgeous just the way they are. Love how colourful they are against the wintery setting. x

That’s so adorable of them I love how little ones minds work. Editing wise, I make a few tweaks in Lightroom but I think experimenting and getting it right “in camera” is the best way to go x
