The July trip to NYC

Standard

I always love visiting NYC, I love the atmosphere and I love the company.  This time it was all about the things my Daddy wanted to experience since he was along for the trip.

Day 1 we decided on Coney Island since he had not been there before. I am never quite sure why he wants to visit beaches since he doesn’t actually go in the water, but I never question it because well I want to go to the beach anyway 🙂

I was able to get a few cool shots of the rocks and seagulls, total added bonus 🙂

Day 2 we went to Times Square to the Toys R Us, the munchkins each got to pick a toy from PAPA and C was really excited because it was the first time we got the My little pony car on the wheel.

Then we headed over to Rockefeller Center and went to the Lego Store

The munchkins loved filling up their buckets with hand picked legos

After that we stopped by the NBC Experience Store and A was delighted that they had the chair from The Voice

When we got back that night we had A’s Ninjago Surprise Party

My dad and I left the next day and the munchkins stayed with Grandpa and Grandma, It was rough leaving them because I barely do it, but I know they are having a great time, and I am just looking forward to picking them up and spending another week in the city with family

NYIP Unit 5 Photo Project Review

Standard

I got the reviews back for my NYIP Unit 5 Photo Project I was really happy with them!

Photo 1: Cheetah : Spectacular, large off center, off focus background. I wonder what the animal is reacting to? The fact that you caught it in a simple beautiful photograph is outstanding, the fact that i wonder what is going on with him is a great thing, that keeps a person looking, very good thing!

Photo 2: News: Wow This is really some shot, WOW, look at this, spectacular in a negative way! I hope no one was hurt, Oh my lord, incredible, you show the country side behind it, smoldering fire, what a mess, I must look this up, wow this is something! Fabulous picture! You gave all the info, very concise.

Photo 3: Sports: Just great! Wonderful shutter speed, simple compostion. (She mentioned she loves baseball) Your picture is excellent.

Photo 4: Bug: Kind of sad, broken wing bug, he looks like he wants help, sad picture, evoking emotion, amazing what you could accomplish!  2 pictures with animals where it evokes completely different emotions in me, that tells me that it is a good picture, you got fairly close without a macro or telephoto that is great, really impressed!

Impressed and I like all your pictures very much!

Pat on the back for me lol, I am feeling pretty good right now!

Do you have a favorite picture?

NYIP Unit 5 photo project

Standard

I finished up and submitted my Unit 5 photo project.  This unit was fairly easy and fun for me.  I got an A on the test.

A picture of an animal (This Cheetah was eating grass at the zoo, I love that I was able to take it through glass, and get a good picture of the grass in his teeth)

fire
A news photo that could be published in a newspaper or magazine (I was on my way to get ice cream when I passed this fire and was able to get the shot)

Sports
A sports photo (This was taken at one of my nephews baseball games)

bug

A close up of an insect (this was taken without macro or telephoto, so I was pretty happy with how close I was able to get)

NYIP Unit 4 photo project

Standard

This Unit was all about portraiture, I actually kind of enjoyed it, although having to ask people to model for the photo project and having to do things on their time did slow me down a little.  I got an A on my test and I sent in my pictures last night 🙂

Cadence
Photo 1 was a head and shoulders shot using natural light
My princess volunteered

Jenni

Photo 2 was a head and shoulders shot using a light, my princess got bored so I had to find a new model

Photo 3 was an outdoor 3/4 shot
This is my favorite picture of the 5

Sam

Photo 4 was a picture of an animal showing their personality
This is Sam, my dad’s dog and he looks like this a lot, he likes to just lay around because he is getting pretty old

indoor

Photo 5 was an indoor photo shoot showing a persons personality using the background and props
Can you tell what she loves?

So now I am all finished with Unit 4 and stating my reading for Unit 5, I will post again when I get my reviews

NYIP Unit 3 Photo Project

Standard

This project was by far my least favorite, sure I realize you need to know how to use lighting, but overall I thought the pictures required were boring, and they didn’t speak to me at all. Such is life, I finished and am awaiting my review
