Laney's class field trip was yesterday. The weather was just l o v e l y! Sunny and warm...in the mid 70's! Great day for photo taking! The kiddos had a blast. Most did not want to leave and return to school. I don't blame them! We went to a place called Tagawa Gardens. They had a haunted house, pumpkin decorating, games, and a bounce house maze. It was actually so warm the kids got hot and sweaty...go figure...October in Colorado...gotta love it!
I admit I was a bit nervous about the whole event because my Tamron lens was gone and I only had my old Canon lens and I had not taken it on this big of an event before. I had taken it on test runs but wasn't sure if it would do what I wanted. I took extra battery back up, extra memory card...I even took my old Kodak point and shoot just in case it all went south.
Fortunately I am happy to report complete success!!!! YAY!!!! I had to get in a little closer because of the lack of zoom on this lens vs. my old Tamron. However when I got home yesterday afternoon after I collapsed on the couch and fell asleep...yes I was t i r e d...I looked over the photos. I got amazing color with this lens. I was so surprised!!!!! And happy...and thrilled!!!
Now is just the hard part of sorting thru and picking out the ones I want to use and doing another layout for the bulletin board. I took 354 photos...phew! That's a lot! I am looking forward to it...but right now I'm just still soooo tired! Events like this so wipe me out!
Here's a photo of Laney with the pumpkin she decorated...I went into Photoshop to do some adjusting to the photo and found that I didn't really need or want to...I started tweaking and then just clicked undo cause I really like how much color and depth the camera did on it's own...I'm so pleased...
