So we've all been stuck in the house since Monday. On Monday we found out that John and both kiddos have swine flu. As of today, everyone is much better.

So what do you do when you're stuck in the house for 4 days? You take lots of pics of snotty nosed, puny kiddos. I don't know that I would have necessarily taken many pics during these sickly days except that I have this new toy:

Now let me say straight up, I am a natural light girl. I just don't use flash. Ever. But after a lot of deliberation and research I decided to take the plunge and purchase an external flash. (Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday to me.. LOL)
Here's the problem. I have NO IDEA what I'm doing. Natural light is my thing, so giving me a good flash unit isn't doing much good right now. Next on my to-do list is to settle down with the little manual that came with it and figure out the crazy thing.

Here are some pics to prove my point.

Hello brightness..

Yes, she has her shirt on inside out and she has food on her face. But it gets better.

See? I told you it gets better.

So as you can see they are all over the place.. some are blown out.. some are too dark. I'll just keep playing til I get it figured out. Guess that means I'm gonna get a lot of shots of snot over the next couple days ;)
