Day 118

 Today was busy. It consisted of kids doing silly things like licking the floor because there were bits of ice on it, trying on sunglasses, cleaning, and hiding in cozy corners.

Grady really likes ice... ahaha

I know it's really blurry, but it makes me laugh. 

(f: 4.5; ISO 1/20s; ISO 800)
Caiden and Grady were awesome. I went over to help Deb with the boys and help clean some, and she was able to go shopping. I got a lot more cleaning done than I thought! The boys wanted to help with everything! So, it kept them entertained and we got some cleanin' done :) In the last picture they are helping me clean the bathroom.

As you can see, I am still having a lot of trouble with lighting and/or blurryness. a lot. Because I am normally dealing with kids, I should be keeping my shutter speed up higher so that it's not as blurry, but then the pictures turn out really dark. sigh.

I LOVE the last one! Love seeing their cute faces AND the backs of their heads! (I also like where you put your name--the texture there looks great.)

Thanks for taking care of my sis!

It is such a conundrum, those lighting issues. You're right, you give something away with either blurriness or extreme darkness. I would say it is always better to get some graininess in your pictures from having a high ISO than to have blurry or super dark pictures. In the last one could you have raised your ISO to 1600 (the highest it will go?). Often times with the boys I have my ISO set really high, especially when we're inside, because I want a high ss too.

That last picture is so pretty and well done, though. I like the way you set up the shot.

The picture of Grady eating ice off of the floor is too funny!

Thank you for helping Deb today - you are sweet:)

And about Poncho, that's a bit comical that you're now the one who has him:)
