When they arrived home, they not only brought themselves (which is plenty for me), but they also brought home lots of treats and trinkets for the whole family! Of course, seeing these amazing items they returned with provided me with a wonderful excuse to whip out my camera and practice shooting manually...indoors at night...under fluorescent lighting...eeeek! I won't lie, I had to play around with my settings for awhile before I started to get decent pictures. First there was not enought light, then my images kept being blurry, obviously I need A LOT more practice! But after a little while I started to get some decent pictures, and was beyond excited and proud of myself. Enjoy these African creations!
These were amazing! Paintings on pieces of wood with tin cans used for the buildings! So creative!
Have to have some sweets...of course!
Gorgeous jewelry for my sister and I!
And, a drum for my nephew.
And if there is anyone interested...these were taken with WB set to tungsten light, shutter speed 1/5, and aperture f5.6. Took me awhile to get there but I think these pictures came out decent!
