I did it! somewhat haphazardly, but nonetheless it went okay.
and I learned quite a bit in the process. for example:
1. purchase a bigger memory card (and carry an extra). especially when shooting in RAW. um mm...yeah I felt like an idiot when I had barely started the session and my memory card read "full". so there I was frantically deleting pictures from the previous two days. ugh.
2. scope out the location BEFORE doing a shoot. so we arrived at the golf course and I had no idea what the lighting situation was or what I was dealing with for background. so we just did it "off the cuff". in the end it was fine...maybe the late morning lighting was a little too bright, though.
3. keep calm and carry on. especially when you look like an obvious amateur photographer.
here's a few images from the shoot. and thanks to the Keranen family for being so patient. that's why I'm doing this free of charge...so I can smooth out the kinks and learn from my mistakes. after all, Rome wasn't built in a day.
ENJOY! (and I'm open to any critiquing. I can handle it.)
yahoo! it's friday! and Myra is a big 9 years old today! (you know, I think I'll just buy a cake this time.)
