Wacky Williams : Late Night Gamers

Late night gamers.  These kids love their iPods from last Christmas.  Some are more addicted than others, but all in all, these have saved me a few times when I have a meeting or photoshoot before daddy can watch them.  Once or twice, we let them play them in bed, and I'm surprised how late they can stay up playing!  Looks like I've got a small problem on my hands.... I'm a mom that hates the gaming world, and have 3 kids growing up in it!

Wacky Williams : Self Portrait in the Galaxy

A warm night in August had me excited to photograph the stars!  It was clear, comfortable and quiet in the country.  Instead of walking back into the fields, I noticed my shadow, and thought it would be a cool self-portrait opportunity.... so.... I had to stand very still for 30 seconds for the long exposure..... in my pjs, in my driveway, at midnight.  LOL.  Great memories. :)  And I love seeing how the milky way shows up on the long exposure!  Enjoy!

Here's my settings, in case you ever want to try this with a DSLR camera.  
-Get your widest lens, pre-focus it to 'infinity' and lock the focus.
-Set your ISO to around 1000.... (play with it a little if you don't like the results.)
-Set your shutter to 30 seconds.
-Set your F-stops to the lowest they go.  Mine went to 2.8. 
-Have the camera on a tripod and press the shutter and wait for 30 seconds.  Don't bump it, or cross the lens during the 30 seconds.  
If your image is too bright, put your ISO down lower.  If your image is too dark, move your ISO up higher.  

Shutter 30 sec. f2.8/ISO1000/16mm fisheye

Wacky Williams : Flight

Thank you papa for the plane :)  This is my dad's Piper 4 seater plane.  I wanted to try something with my trio flying over our own house :)  SOOOOO, with the help of my drone for the background, and papa's plane (in the hanger, yes, on the ground) my kiddos think they were pilots :)  LOL!

Wacky Williams : Fireflies


Country living has some huge perks!  From June-August, we can see a sparkle of fireflies in masses around the soybean fields.  It's like Christmas dazzle!  So pretty.  I guess it's part of their mating season, but it's so amazing to see SOOOOO many in close areas!  Our kids captured (and probably suffocated) their share of fireflies... they aren't hard to catch... most of the time, we just swing our hand and then they are in your hand.  This is just a fun image to remember the summer as fall starts up.
