Practice Makes Perfect!! That's what everyone says, so I took their advice. I was practicing away with my little camera. I put myself in a very naturally well-light room and snapped away. I figured I would practice, and maybe get some fun shots to give Scotty. I am very pleased with my results, too! I practiced for probably an hour or two, and I can't show you any of the shots!! Not the full ones, at least (I did say they were for Scotty).
Here are a couple of pieces of the pictures I took:
Now, I should probably devote some practicing time to Italian, too.
What are some things you guys have been practicing?
