Fun with Aperture

Lately, I've been obsessed with editing photos.  I sit at the computer every night once the kids are in bed and play around with Aperture 3.  I only have the free trial for now but plan on getting it.  I only have three days left!  I will have to get it.  Very.  Soon.

All of my blogs in Google Reader have been replaced with photographers around the country.  I take at least fifty pictures of the kids every day.  I can't tell you how many pictures of my coffee mugs I've taken, practicing lighting and exposures.  I get so wrapped up in photos, the hours escape me.  I think that Jake has fallen asleep before me the last three out of four nights.  This never happens!

Like I said, obsessed.

Obviously, I'm no professional.  Right now, I'm just enjoying practicing and playing around with the kids.  But someday....someday I just might want to do this as a career.  I am in love.  Not infatuation, but real, true, love that is food to your soul.  I just can't get enough. 

Here are a few of my favorites from this summer.
