On Tuesday I met Shirley for the first time in person. We had agreed to get together for her to practice her photography on my three kids and for me to learn some new things (which I did). She came to our place first and then we walked to Beckett park and through Maranoa gardens. Back home I fed the kids some lunch and then we went to Maling Road for a little while. Hopefully my three will have given Shirley some good shots to build her portfolio. It was nice to meet a fellow scrapbooker and photographer, as I don't know many others than through the internet. I didn't take too many pictures that day, but particularly loved this one of Renee:
When Shirley went back home, I discovered shortly after that she had left one of her lenses. She told me it's okay to give it a go, as it's one that I haven't got (85mm f/1.8). Yesterday I took this picture of Renee (again, but she was the only one willing to pose):
I think I want one too now. Thank you Shirley for all the great tips and a great time together.
