a Little Birdie Told Us... http://www.photocreationsllc.com/blog/2014/2/a-little-birdie-told-us We have a little birdie who lives outside our window... all year long!  As you can see by the scratches on the window, he loves to peck and fly right into it!  He is there Spring, Summer, Fall, and yes, Winter too!

 

Won't even try to replace the window because he will scratch it up again!

Finally Made It Up North! http://www.photocreationsllc.com/blog/2014/2/finally-made-it-up-north I know we have had a lot of snow this year, but the bitter cold (and very busy schedules) have kept us from getting to use  our snowmobiles!  Capturing family activities with photos is an excellent way to remember great times together. Use your photos to tell a story... I bet you will notice our story included getting stuck in 3 feet of snow, but in the end, had a lot of fun!

Some of the photos posted below were taken with my iPhone, so don't think you need a great camera to capture those special moments!

Spring is just around the corner... Hopefully! http://www.photocreationsllc.com/blog/2014/1/spring-is-just-around-the-corner-hopefully Warrior Relays 35270Warrior Relays 35270

 

Here's a shot of a robin to remind us that even though it's below Zero with the windchill factor, we still live in Michigan and we get all four seasons!  I know I am ready for spring!  

Stay warm!

Trying Something New for the New Year - Happy 2014! http://www.photocreationsllc.com/blog/2014/1/trying-something-new-for-th Happy New Year!  As some of you know, Paul and I both had a passion for photography since before we even met!  We have been fortunate enough to have started a small photography business in our home, and because of all of the positive compliments and wonderful referrals our friends, family and past clients have given us, we are growing!  

We have photographed a lot of Seniors, as well as continue to make our special DVD Creations for special occasions, such as Graduation and/or Anniversary Parties, or any other special events where a DVD of lasting memories can be shared.

Paul's favorite is still sports photography, and since both of our sons are swimming for DeLaSalle this year, I want to share a few photos with you and give you a little information on how to take this memorable shots.

We took these shots of the boys, as well as many other team members, in the pool.  I love my Canon 5d Mark II. (Paul took over the new Canon 5d Mark III, which I also love!)  I used the flash with my camera and had our 24 - 105 lens.  This lens is very versatile, as you can get pretty close to your subject, but also get large group shots as well.  It only has an f-stop of 4.0, so the downfall is it that doesn't work as well in low light or action shots.  I set my ISO at 2000 to compensate and had a 1/320 shutter speed set as well.

Paul used the Canon 5D Mark III and our Canon 70 - 200 lens.  He loves this lens!  It has a low F-stop of 2.8, which really helps in low light situations.  Because the boys are moving, you need to set a high shutter speed.  His was set at 1/1600.  Notice the droplets of water even look still and crystal clear.  Paul also had his ISO set at 8000, which is pretty high.  You will get noise (you lose clarity) when higher ISO is used if you don't have enough light, hence the need for a low F - stop of 2.8!  

I know I used a few technical definitions such as F-stop, ISO, noise etc.  If I keep this New Year's Resolution and continue the Blog, I promise I will explain these terms better in future blogs!
