Monday Rewind

Okay. I am still not exactly sure what I'm supposed to do for Monday Rewind.  Truly it sounds too simple and that makes me feel like I must be missing something!  However, Chic Homeschool Mama says share your photos from last week and link up.  So here goes!

This was really my favorite shot of Huckleberry in the tree, but it wasn't green enough to compete with my other really, really green shots, so it got ignored all week.  Today is the day it gets to be seen.
This is my favorite shot and black and white of my keys, but it isn't high-key, so it didn't fit into the scavenger hunt.  I have no real use for a BW photo of keys, so here you go!
Sunflower was very interested in "helping" me get ready for my baby shoot on Thursday.  This was Wednesday and I was trying to see if I could get enough light from my window and what angle to put the set-up, etc.   She made it a little more difficult to experiment and I was worried that she would want to be in every baby shot.  I was able to limit that to 4 or 5.  Whew!  No sitting on the baby!
I really should have taken more pictures with the white background on Thursday and not black.  It was just too grey out.  This one turned out okay, but to avoid the flash I had to use 1600 ISO (I also took with flash and lower ISO, but it was not better) which gives me a lot of noise.  This is not my favorite photo of the batch, but still a precious moment captured.  Does anyone have any advice for processing that can enhance this photo for mom?  (Mom--this one is lowered pixels for the web, but I do have the original for you soon!)

Well, that is my week in rewind.  Hop on over and share your week with everyone.

You did it perfect. It's for all those shots that don't make it into a challenge or theme. I know I have tons of them. Thanks for linking up- I love your shots!

I actually used all my shots from last week somehow so I just rewound and did pics from the weekend - snapshots that usually don't make it to the blog. For your last photo... do you shoot in RAW? This is very easy to correct if you are. You just bump up the blacks from Adobe Camera RAW. This will reduce the noise in the blanket she's laying on. You may have to do some other minor adjustments to compensate. You can still do this trick even if you're not shooting in RAW it's just not quite as easy, in my opinion. VERY cute!

I love all your shots. I think the third one is my favorite :-) I love the look on her face.
