10 on 10: January

This year I've decided to participate in two monthly photography projects along with some of the other members of Bloom, a photography forum I'm part of.   The first of these projects is a 10 on 10:  Ten photos taken during one day or event, documenting that day or event, and posted on the tenth of the month.  Everyone's entries are posted in a blog circle- you can follow the links from blog to blog and see everyone's contribution. (And WELCOME! to any of you who might have come here from Rachel McCalley Photography!)

 I decided to use the 10 on 10 in January to document a typical day now that I'm a full-time stay at home mom.  A few caveats:  I neglected to take any photos of the morning which was spent at the pediatrician as it was a rather negative experience (more on that in another upcoming post).  I also neglected to notice that my camera was set on jpeg instead of raw (perhaps a child was messing with my settings?  Am not sure what happened as I haven't shot in jpeg in YEARS) and I also decided to challenge myself and use a wide angle adapter that's been collecting dust in my camera bag on my 35mm lens (it's just a cheapie little thing that changes things up a bit- you can notice the distortion it causes in some of the photos).  My final caveat is that I played around with my post processing a bit more than usual.  Ultimately, I had a lot of fun doing this and got some images that really capture our every day life...

  7. I so love the one of your and your sweet baby reading and wish I had one like that from when mine were still able to fit in my arms! It's always been one of my most favorite things to do with them. Looking forward to spending this year with you!
