my girl turned 13! it also happened to be the first day of a two day (in two weeks) photography class, I shot her birthday in MANUAL mode! Whoopee for me! Today I finished this class and feel a lot more confident with the taking of pictures in the manual mode. Now dont' get me wrong I don't claim to be even remotely close to a professional photographer, I like to take pictures and was looking for a way to improve my knowledge.... That being said I got some fun shots of her birthday, I made this layout with some of those shots:

Well, I'm off and running want to get some much needed creating done! :) Thanks for popping in for a visit!
