April Shower of Photos :: Day 11

by | Apr 11, 2008 | Shower of Photos | 4 comments

I’m so excited!!! I am learning so much about my new camera during the April Shower of Photos!!

Today I realized the difference shutting the flash off can make. I also figured out how to use the macro feature on this camera. I’m still not sure how/or if my rebel has that feature?

Anyhow, check out these pictures.

I do like this picture, but you’d never know that it was taken at 2 in the afternoon. It was taken using the regular indoor setting with automatic flash (which went off).

For this picture I used the same setting, and shut the flash off. That made such a huge difference with the lighting.

Then, for this last picture I used the indoor setting with no flash and set the camera to micro. That made the picture a bit more clear, in addition to softening the background.

It is amazing the difference that the settings can make! Isn’t it?

(Other than my relatives… I hope you aren’t all getting sick of seeing pictures of my children… They are my favorite “things” to photograph!)

    I love photography. And, it’s SO fun to learn new ways to make the pictures of your loved ones great. Too bad it’s almost impossible to capture their complete essence on film. But, I keep on trying!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
