First blog thingie

Ok, this is the first attempt to do a blog thing, I know a little about them, so here it goes.
On Feb 18, 2k6, the wife and I are going to Mt. Vernon Ohio to spend an evening with some friends or ours. the 4 of us are planning on an evening of photos and fun. We have talked about the photos we can do, and they are afraid that the 199 photos their digi can take won't be enough. so they are looking at getting another sd card or two. For those in our friends network, some of the photos will be posted in the future.

Welcome to blogging. Try a 1gb memory card for your dig cam. Depending on how you have the mega pixels set it will hold from around 800 pics to around 2400. It's what I use.

I'm a former magazine photographer, and usually the one taking the photos -- so here's some advice:

-- Force each participant in the party to take a turn being responsible for taking some of the photos. (That way, the results do not end up with the same person missing from the photo all of the time!)

-- Unless your camera has an interval timer (can shoot a series of several photos on its own while it is on a tripod), the usual self-timer shot will probably not catch the right moment.

--Photograph the "Faces of passion." These are fantastic and these shots will end up being the ones you treasure -- far more than anatomical close-ups.

--Every scene worth shooting is worth both a long-shot (view of the whole body landscape) as well as several close-ups.

--Photo sequence is important to memories: Have a way to keep the photos roughly in order of time taken.

These recommendations sound good to you?
Would like to be there!
Good luck,

Thanks for all the comments and hope to share more her soon, Edge357, Thanks for the advice, I used to make a living as a freelance video/photographer, and reading your post brought back a few of the things I had forgotten, wish I had the interval timer, but will have to make the self timer due
