My husband is a photographer. I...am not. I'd like to be. So many times I have the perfect shot in my head, but I can't make it happen. For the last couple months in particular I just wasn't happy with my product shots for this blog. They weren't sharp, if you know what I mean. I kept bugging John because I figured it was just that I don't know what I'm doing. But he finally understood what I was asking and told me that we had the wrong lens. I was using a wide angle lens to shoot all my close up product shots. Not compatible apparently. So we got a new lens and it is everything I always wanted! I can focus on one thing and everything else will be blurry. That is the secret that all these mommy bloggers don't tell you. That is why you see the cute baby and not all the crap on the table and laundry on the couch!
Photography by John Firak, ha!
