Sincerely 'Fro Me to You - Just the Right Angle


I like to fancy myself a photographer. Of course, I am far from it. D... is a much better photographer than I am, but I think it's because she has a fancier camera. When we went to Disney last year she let me borrow her fancy camera, and I have to admit, my pictures did look better than usual....

I like to try to get "different" shots, especially at Disney because we've been so many times that all our pictures start looking the same. As I was scrapbooking our last Disney trip Hubby said, "Why don't you just use all the pictures from the last trip? They look the same!" How rude.

So I decided to try some new stuff this last time, taking full advantage of the fancy camera I had around my neck. I wanted to get a pic of my kids with the Epcot ball behind them - like the WHOLE ball, not just the side of it. So I got lower. And lower. And soon enough I ended up like this:

Flattering, no? I think the picture came out pretty good, tho, despite the fact that Little Son is looking at me like I'm a giant doofus.

Good times.

We'll be in Disneyworld next week :-) My son would shoot me on the spot if I did that. But then he's almost 13 so it takes next to nothing for him to want to do away with me - lol. I'm going to show him this blog and threaten him with it!

I am so not the better photographer! But I like that you think so. ;)

Now I see why my pics all look the same! I've just been standing in front of my subject. I'm going to change my perspective, haha.

I do this. And I suspect my Tongginator will give me that same look one of these days. I have, however, learned to avoid doing this while wearing a skirt. Good times!

I do the same thing, and I wonder what the other people are thinking about me when I do this. :)
