Learning Some New Tricks

We are spending a few days with our friends Cam and Becca while Troy participates in a VBS program in Mosinee.  The Church that is hosting the VBS chose M.A.P. as their ministry for the week (don't know what M.A.P. is? Check it out here: http://www.nicoletbibleinstitute.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=67&Itemid=72).  It is a special honor because all of the offerings that the kids bring forward for the week will be given to M.A.P!  The whole theme for the week revolves around flying too! The church really did a great job of putting everything together. We are thankful that they chose to highlight M.A.P. this week.  Maybe one of the kids who attend will be inspired to become a missionary pilot when they grow up.

While we are staying with Cam and Becca, Troy is helping them put in a stamped concrete patio.  Very exciting for them. 

What's exciting for me is that Becca recently started her own photography business.  You can check it out here at www.rebeccasanfordphotography.com.  I am loving looking at her beautiful pictures and seeing how well she is doing.  Especially because not too long ago she was asking me my opinion on camera's and asking me for pointers on what I knew.  She had never owned an DSLR before!  Now, I'm here this week asking her for tips and advice on how to improve my pictures!

So, not wanting to waste any time, today I borrowed her reflector, a little tool that I don't have but have considered buying.  I took the boys to the park and grabbed my camera. 

I am pretty happy with my results.  Of course the best photo's came last, so I have a whole bunch of pic's that are just o.k., but that's all part of the learning process.

So check them out and let me know what you think:

I think I've finally got the updated photo's I've needed for the frames we have hanging on the wall.

I may have also found a new gadget that would be worth investing in.

Thanks for stopping by! Pin It
