A Three Lens Weekend

What a weekend! I used three different lenses this weekend, so you know we were busy!

Shea's car was stolen. With a full tank of gas, so I'm guessing it went a long way before we discovered it missing and the police report was filed. We are both sad and a bit disappointed (thank you yoga for taking the anger away).

We spent a marvelous Saturday (before realizing the car was stolen) with great friends. One of those all day unexpected extravaganzas complete with great food, conversation, and entertained kids! So thankful for wonderful friends. I got to try my hand at soccer photos for the first time!

I had a bit of fun. This is probably a little different than most parents want of their kids! It made me think of Tara Whitney's In Betweens.


Today was our annual trip to Apple Hill which, of course, meant a little stop at Jack Russell Brewery for a pint. Now fall can begin!

If you are stopping by from LOAD, welcome! Say hello if you have a chance! Everyone who does is going into a little impromptu drawing for a pass class to Your Life: Captured Through The Lens! Class starts November 2nd. Leave a comment by Wednesday 10/6 at 10PM Pacific time telling me what you like most around here! Not doing LOAD? Well, I guess I'll let you enter too :).

Oh Katrina, I'm so sorry for the car. What a bad feeling that leaves in your mouth. Loving your photography tips as always.

Hi, Katrina!
I just listened to your phone interview with Lain! I'm off to crop something close - your class looks great! I'm putting your blog in my "favorites."

Sandy said...

I love the tutorials you have done for Designer Digitals. I'm excited to have the link for some of your other articles. Sorry about the car....

hi Katrina, my name is Melinda and I'm doing LOAD with Lain Ehman. What a great interview, so much resonated with me. As a busy mom photographing three little kids as I go about all the activities of the day, I appreciated your "photo a day" idea. Just one. Of one of them or of one thing- looking where the action or emotion is. My story is going so quickly I want to catch it! Im glad you "recreate" it too. I have to. And I would love, love, love to get a better grasp on my camera to get better pictures. I have much to learn. Thanks!

I'm a LOADster, but have been following you on Twitter for quite a while. Love that you're participating with us and I look forward to seeing the rest of your layouts. After browsing your blog, I enjoyed seeing your photo rejects. It's good to know that even a great photographer can have a few duds too. Your little boy is soooo cute, even when he looks like he's being abducted by aliens ;)

MaryC said...

Okay, the car thing bites! I had a car stolen once so I know how it feels. Loving your blog with your photos and tips. Tell Shea we said HI!

Heather said...

OOOhhh! This is so cool! Lain sent me, and I wish I'd known about you sooner.
I'm going to have to do a lot of poking around.
Looks like you've got a lot of good tips and ideas here.
Time to explore!

OH I just love LOAD but could not fit it into my schedule this month. You make me so jealous of those that were able to join LOAD. I am sure it is a ton of fun.

Debbie P said...

I am doing LOAD this go around. It's my 2nd time. And one of the things I've loved the most about LOAD is when Lain introduces us to some great talents. Enter you. I love your website. Your photography and perspective is awesome! Thanks for the chance to win something. You go in my favorites for sure.

April said...

Hi Katrina! Loving your blog. I'm glad Lain found you to introduce to us LOADsters :) Sorry to hear about the car, but I definitely get you on the busy weekend and three lenses because mine was that way too.

Katrina you know I love your soccer shot ... it's my kind of soccer shot (shhh, don't tell my boys, although I think they've figured it out by now - along with the feet/cleat/grass shots!). So sorry about the car.

Sherry Grove said...

hello, Katrina! Thanks for being part of LOAD

Narelle Jurss said...

Absolutely loved your "crazy lady with a camera page" what a cool idea! And thank you for the tips on shooting active children - my 33 month old daughter is not very cooperative!!!!!

tammy said...

I came to your blog after reading your post on the Daily Digi. I love the in-between. I'm sure I have a photo like that somewhere that I thought was a reject. Now I want to find it! So sorry about the car.

Gloria said...

Hi Katrina, this is my first time on your blog, I´m loving all the great photography tips. Just wanted to say thanks for the great interview with Lain for LOAD, I had a great time hearing it, and the close up layout you shared is amazing, I really liked what you did with the photos. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

PS: I´m so sorry for what happened with your car, what a bummer...

Cheers from Bolivia (South America)
