A reminder to myself....


So, I have been having some trouble with my Pentax K-10 D. All of my low light pictures have had ALOT of noise (for those of you who are not photographers that means you can see a lot of pixelation in them). I have been really upset because I loved all the pictures I have been getting until a few months ago when we went to my brothers wedding, and some of my shots, like the one up above didn't turn out so well. Well, I've been reading online what some of the problems are with my camera and started taking some test shots here in my office. Then I decided to take off what I *THOUGHT* was my UV ray filter that I usually leave on all the time. Only to find out that I had my polorize filter on! And for those of you who think I'm speaking greek a UV filter is clear, a polarize filter darkens things a bit so that when you are shooting at a place like the beach or lake it cuts down on the glare! So, yeah when we went on vacation in June I put the polarize filter on because we were at both the beach and lake and then forgot to take it off. So, YEAH! problem solved and this is a note to myself to remember to check the filters next time my camera is doing something I'm not so happy with, because chances are that it is the users fault and not the camera!

What an adorable little boy. That smile just wins me every time.
I know you get tired of hearing this, but he sure looks like his Daddy. My mother-in-law did the same thing to me too. Now I wish she was still here with us to say it able Aidan.

I'm glad you were able to get the problem resolved, Shannon! Aidan is getting so big and he's just as cute as ever!
