Moms with Cameras

Jenty of Jeanette Verster Photography hosted a workshop this afternoon at Stepping Stones Garden Village.

Most of the moms had ‘real’ cameras but a few of us had ‘point & shoots’.

I have a Canon PowerShot SX100IS, I also have no idea what that means 🙂

The workshop was fantastic, Jenty showed us how to set aperture, shutter speed and ISO as well as giving us tips on composition and basically how to take pictures of monkeys kids.

I need a lot more practice but I had great fun trying to get good shots of Aaron.  My biggest issue is focusing on him and not the background.


Also a huge thank you to Angel for coming to my rescue with a set of batteries 🙂

How are we going to choose?

*This post has been coming for a week!*

Last Sunday we met Jenty (aka Jeanette) at the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens for our much anticipated photo shoot.

We had so much fun.  It took Aaron a little while to warm up but once he had he was so into it.  He ran, jumped, threw leaves, demanded attention, took Jeanette’s hand and led her around and just had an absolute ball.

The sneak peek Jeannette put up on her blog is amazing, I can barely choose my favourites from those ones, how in heavens name am I supposed to choose from the full batch we will be getting?
