Photography thoughts

This is my thought: I suck!
You should see the behind the scenes of each post I do. I take a million and one pictures and then I pick one or two that are not as horrible as the rest.
example:

 I'm always looking at tips from others but I don't seem to get it...or I don't let it sink in. I feel like I need to attend a photography class...The only reason why I have resisted is because everything else I have done I have never had to take a class, I'm always able to figure it out on my own. I never took a class for crocheting or sewing but I'm thinking I need one for photography :(  I have yet to grasp the concept... But the cost is alot! Some of the Online classes can be around $200!!
So until I get great I have to apologize, I have been looking thru my photos and I'm so sorry If I have blinded you!  And here I am posting them again:
I'm posting these as my "what you don't want your photos to look like"
K-so I am done beating myself up and have acknowledged that I'm a horrible photography...now all I can do is go up right? 
I have found these links from some very generous bloggers ( i couldn't find there blog buttons)  And I hope they can help me get better photo's.

  1. Aw don't stress it just takes practice. What camera are you using? I use a canon rebel xs from time to time. Here's a link to one of my blog posts I did with some of my good photos : http://katharinedianne.blogspot.com/2012/01/all-about-cars.html

    Depending on what camera you are using you can set the focus to manual and just adjust the focus on the one item.

  2. Thanks for commenting on my blog :) It just takes practice. I only shoot in manual, sometimes with flash/auto if I just can't get the picture right in manual. But really all I do is shoot in Manual mode, make sure the lighting around me is decent. Then I adjust the settings a little. If you're worried about the pictures turning out a little blurry due to light, just adjust the ISO to a higher number..like 800 or 1600..but the higher you go on that, the grainer the picture will be. I just added you to fb so if you'd like to chat about it we can :)

I feel like I can't get a good picture without my flash but I'm FOREVER seeing people taking AMAZING pictures without their flash... sigh... Thanks for being honest and open about it... because sometimes I feel I'm the only who gets frustrated :D

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
