Foto Tip Friday!!! Reflector in a Pinch

This week has been something else. I am so glad it was Friday! Here is your photo tip for the week.

Are you trying to stay in a photo budget like me? You want to buy all this neat stuff for taking photos but don't want to spend the money. Well, here is a neat, cheap trick you can use and you probably don't have to buy a thing.

If you haven't used a reflector than I recommend you start. Look up some different techniques on the internet. But instead of buying a genuine photography reflector, you can use the shade you have in your car that is used to keep the sun out while your car sits.

Now that it is Fall, it may be harder to find those shades, so here is another inexpensive option. A piece of insulation. One side is a shiny silver layer that  reflects light perfectly. Funny huh?

You would be surprised at all the neat little tricks you can find that will save you money. I will bring you more next time! So until then have a great week!

Throwback Thursday!!! The Farm

I was looking through some photos looking for a particular photo when I spotted this one. It was taken in 2015 and I had forgotten all about it. I took this up in ND at my in laws farm. 
When my hubby and I first got married, he farmed with his dad. I was a city girl and let me tell you, it gave me a new respect for farmers and how long and hard they work. I still can't consider myself a country girl, but I am old fashioned and like to do things, like raising my kids, the old fashioned way. I guess that is why I like this photo so much. 👪🤠

What To Wear!!!!! Interview Outfits!

Ok, so I haven't actually gone on an interview for about 10 years, so I thought it would be neat to look and see what is trending now for interview attire. I see it hasn't changed a whole lot, but it isn't a bad idea to keep updated just in case. I hope you don't have to use this unless you choose to.

I was always told to dress for the job you are interviewing if you already have it. I guess, it depends on what you are interviewing for. I had an instance where I was interviewing at a clothing store and wore an outfit I had bought there. But the outfit was not totally appropriate for an interview and it cost me the job. It wasn't distasteful, it was just too trendy and not enough business.

Check out this article and pass it on to those you know who are looking for a job. It may be what makes the difference between getting the job and not getting the job.

Going Against the Grain

We just had a pretty unconventional event in our family. But before I tell you what it is, I want to give you a little background. I am opening up here to share a little about me.

Mark and I celebratedour 23rd anniversary. We have had an amazing marriage thanks to God bringing us together and we have kept Him a big part of our lives. It wasn't always that way though.
When we were dating we decided we wanted to live together before we were married, much to the chagrin of our parents. I wish we had waited to live together because with our decision came many times of feeling shame.
So, when our oldest daughter came to us and said she wanted to move in with her fiance', we were less than thrilled. We didn't give her a long lecture or shake our fingers at her. We simply told her she is an adult and she is old enough to make her own decisions. We reminded her how we felt and how God felt, but told her we would love her no matter what she decided. We didn't want to shame her. God isn't about shame.
What they did next surprised Mark and I! They sat down with us several weeks later and told us they wanted to get married early. They were planning to keep their original wedding date of June 30th, but wanted to sign the papers and take their vows early. Unfortunately, my first thought was not the reason they had come to this decision. So why? They said they wanted to be right before God! What!? Talk about going against the grain of society! We hadn't expected this but were very humbled they had come to this decision. They said they didn't want to feel shame for living together and knew it wasn't the way God wanted their life together to start.
Wow! We were so happy to see them make such an adult decision. As my brother put it, "They are making  a decision that puts them ahead of many couples who have been married for years."

So, on October 19th, (a Thursday) our sweet daughter married Tim through lots of tears of joy. There was just a handful of people there. Above all and most importantly, God was there and I bet He had tears of joy as well.
It was simple, sweet and only took about 15 minutes. There was not a party after. We all went our own way, but this was not for us. It was for God!

Mark and I left there feeling peace! We met a few of the people that had been around them while they made this decision. They had a mentor couple and other college age friends who had been praying for them for months before this day. We got the blessing of seeing these people love on them first hand.

I will never forget this day! God opened my eyes to see what I was not seeing in my daughter......a God fearing young lady.
We are blessed beyond measure and we know without a doubt that God is going to be with them each and every step of the way. Through good times and the bad, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, and even after death parts them.

Foto Tip Friday!!! Camera Shake

We all have had those moments. It's the perfect shot. You take a photo and look at your camera to see how it came out.....Perfect!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!  Next you upload it to your computer. You can't wait to share it. You are so proud of yourself, but wait......there it is on your computer screen and it doesn't look like you thought. It has blur from Camera Shake!!!! Ahhhhh! 

How do you avoid this? Well, here are a few tips.

  1. Use a tripod. I know we don't carry our tripod everywhere we go, but this is the simplest and most obvious way to avoid motion blur. If you don't have a tripod, brace yourself against a solid object like a wall or tree for extra stability. 
  2. Be sure to hold your camera properly. You should have one hand on the body and one hand on the lens.
  3. Use your Noise Reduction or Stabilization option in your cameras menu. This doesn't prevent all blur, but it helps.
  4. Use the correct shutter speed. The rule of thumb is to shoot at a shutter speed faster then your focal length. (ie. focal length of 35 mm = shutter speed no slower than 1/35th of a second)
