So, I decided to re-shoot my little tabletop assignment. I had been going for a dark, moody, pewter-y look the first time, but it was just too dark. It was a learning opportunity. I learned about my camera's exposure compensation button - as in, it was set to take the picture two steps darker than the actual conditions. How it got set that way is beyond me. Actually it's not. I know what happened. I just don't think you want to labor through an entire paragraph about my camera's buttons.
So, here are my two favorites from this morning's re-shoot. I had one tiny break in the clouds (it's been cloudy for three days!) and I like these photos a lot better.
I really couldn't choose just one of these, so I think I'll leave them both on my flash drive...you know...so my professor can just pick his favorite and give me a good grade. Ahem.
Also, getta load of these super-tiny hats I made for my nephew! My hand is in there for size reference.
I've already started on a third one. I'm absolutely addicted to knitting preemie hats now. They're almost as cute as the baby they're for. Well, not really. He's awfully cute. Cuter than any living thing should be.
His mama came home from the hospital today. She sounds like she's starting to feel a little better, but I think we are all beginning to realize what a long, tough road is ahead for them. Little Nolan is doing remarkably well, but there is still a long way to go.
