Day 5

I rarely put myself in front of the camera because I can be a control freak, and if I've got the camera then I'm in charge. Actually, I also dislike the way I look in pictures. (I'm my worst critic.) This is me grading papers. A not so fun part of a job that I love. I used the auto timer, but still in manual with my P&S. Yea me! 5 days w/out reverting back to auto!

You look fabulous! It is great to see you in photos!! Way to go with the self timer and manual on a P & S!! I'm super impressed!!

P.S. I SO do not miss that part of teaching :O)

Man, I'm with Courtney on that one. If I never grade another paper again....
Anywho, I can't BELIEVE you got such a clear -and great- shot on manual (in that awful overhead lighting and such)! Do you know what your settings were? Share your secret!

Haha I think this is the first time I really realized that part of me being behind the camera is that I am a control freak! You are like a therapist :p

I hear ya... I'm getting ready to start a new semester and sooooo not looking forward to grading papers! Your picture captures the joys of grading :)

The settings on this one I'd categorize as "pure luck". I'm such a newbie and the saying for beginners luck holds true.

Thanks for all the comments. I love reading what you guys think.

Love it! I teach kindergarten, no papers to grade but a lot of prep work. Way to go manual mode!!!
