This week's theme at I Heart Faces is Smiles. This picture immediately came to my mind when I thought of smiles. This was taken on Christmas morning. Jaren (my cousin) was giving me a giant hug (and smile). I quickly snapped a photo. At the last moment his older sister, Sierra, jumped into the background. As you can see they were both full of smiles. I hope you like it!
Firstly I want to say that I am so glad it is finally friday. This week seemed to drag on forever. And what makes it better is that I have no school monday!
So today after school I decided I wanted to take photos. There was no one to take photos of so I was thinking, " Hmmm. What could I possibly take photos of?" Then I remembered seeing a photo of a strawberry slamming into a cup of water. So I decided to give it a try myself. Here are the results!
So sorry I haven't posted in a while!!
Here are 3 photos of my twin sister. You probably are sick of seeing photos of her but she's the only (half) willing model I've got!
I decided to make them all black and white. Let me know what you think!
A few of you asked for the recipe. You can make a variety of different versions of this .To tell you the truth I just make it up as I go. Here is a general recipe for these ones.
2 cups of butterscotch chips (you can use 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of butterscotch chips instead if you want to add some chocolatey goodness)
3-4 tbsp. of smooth peanut butter
3 cups of marshmallows (rough estimate)
Melt the first two ingredients in a pot on medium-low heat. (make sure you don't burn it!)
Take pot off the burner after the ingredients are melted. Let cool for about 5 minutes.
Add marshmallows and coat evenly. Put in a square greased pan.
Refrigerate until they are hardened.
Cut up and enjoy!
Let me know how they turn out if you decide to make them!
Someone also asked what lens I used. I used the one that my camera came with. It's called an AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G. Basically the cheapest one you can get! I've started to save for a new one. Any suggestions?
My image for today was taken on Sunday while at my cousins' house. I decided I wanted to try to get her to swing and see if I could make her clear but make the background blurred. They have this swing in their basement so we tried it on there. This is how it originally turned out:
This is what it looks like after a few adjustments:
And here it is in black and white:
Please let my know if you like it. Sometimes to me it looks good but then to others it might not seem so great! I really appreciate the comments. :)
I came across this wonderful site that is having a contest about people's today. Here is my entry.
I have some fantastic news... I got my camera back today! I haven't had it in about a month. I am REALLY excited. I just had to take some pictures today. So I decided to take some of myself. Here is one I like.
