Thrive Project #1

As I mentioned in my previous post I found this fantastic blog. It is farmgirl paints. I LOVE it! The creator (Becky) of this blog is so awesome and ahhmazingly talented! You must check her out! Would you believe me if I told you she was taking a photography class and then coming back here to blogland to share her knowledge with us,  Well believe it, cause she is! She is awesome like that!

She is also hosting a weekly linky party called the Thrive project. After her class each week she will share what she learned, and then give us an “assignment” to complete for that week, then we link it up, and check out all the other entries! I love it!

I came into this project a tad late so I didn’t get to “play” around much with the weeks homework. Shutter Speed. I do however have a picture taken with my new camera that I’m pretty sure fits the category.

This is a picture of the big sister outside on a “snow day” She was bouncing up and down on her ball and throwing snow in the air. I’ll be honest with you I haven’t the foggiest idea what setting my camera was on. All I know is that it was NOT on auto. I am forcing myself to go off auto with this new camera, and let me tell you the results are not always pretty! But, I love this shot, and now thanks to Becky I know that since her actions are “frozen” I must have been using a high shutter speed! I really think I’m going to LOVE this project!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I'm sorry that I'm only now getting over here to visit. This sounds like a fun project. I really need to learn how to use my camera. I may have to check this out! I'm now following. Have a wonderful day!

Just found your blog and it is really cute! I noticed how you spell your name? How do you pronounce it? My name is spelled Jena (pronounced the same as Gina).
