Finally- a good focus and color shot from the 5D

It only took 216 pictures to get one good one for focus. I am so happy w/ this camera... there is just a small learning curve to go from Nikon to Canon.

Sharing my first pics w/ the 5D

just wanted to share my first pics (well probably the 70th-75th. It took me a while to figure out how to set my focus points and brighten my lcd screen)

Wish I hadn't over exposed this one!

I used a Canon 75-300mm zoom for these.

Oh, the anticipation

Well, I took my Nikon in to Precision camera to be evaluated and ended up coming home with the Canon 5D. What an awesome camera! I have played with it in the store several times now. Now I just have to wait for the 50 1.4 lens I purchased to get here- probably Wed and I can hardly wait. I wish I had enough money to rent a lens but I spent just about all I had to get the camera and warranty- so I will just have to be patient. I have been reading the manual front to back and can't wait to try it out. I will post my first pics with it- good or bad lol.

I sent the S5 back

after further testing I am still not happy with the S5 so I sent it back to B&H. I just didn't see any difference between my Nikon D100 and the S5.

One from Today

My S5 is finally here, maybe it is because I didn't have much time to play with it but I am a bit disappointed that I don't see a big difference between the S5 and my D100, but I only got to play for a few minutes since I am taking care of 6 kids this week (my 4 and my niece and nephew who are out for spring break) Ari was in school today but Itai stayed home to play with his cousins so there were 5 here all day. I hope I have more time to play and explore all this camera has to offer. Here is one I took- pay no attention to the lighting... I was rushed putting up my lights because my Mom wanted me to take this picture. She found matching dresses for Seska and the girls. As usual this has only been resized and watermarked.

Ugh, my laptop is going to die!

My laptop I have had for 3 yrs is about to pass away, at least the screen is. Just as I was going to work on buying a new camera. I am lusting after the Fuji S5 or the Canon 5D.

Here are a few pictures from the Botanical Gardens 3 weeks ago.

Nothing New to Report

I haven't had a chance to take pictures today. I am trying to clean house as my sister in law from LA is coming to visit. I am proud to report that I did ask one of the fellow moms at my sons' daycare if I could take pictures of her 1 yr old. Meanwhile here's a picture from last week, I purchased a umbrella from Precision Camera, I can tell a difference in the quality of light:
and here is one of Tamar
I haven't quite mastered the change, apparently there is a learning curve. I blew out the whites.

These are the Moments that Matter

I am a 34 yr old SAHM who has a passion for Photography. This blog is my quest to produce consistant quality images. I am Ima (mother in Hebrew) to 4 beautiful children- 4yr old Itai, 21mo old Ari, 5mo old twin girls Yael and Tamar. They are my main subjects right now. I hope to soon begin practicing on friends children and families. I will post images as I begin building my portfolio. These are my girls, Tamar is on the left and Yael on the right.

This is Ari

And here is Itai
