Shooting for fun this past weekend...

My wife and I enjoyed some much needed family time with our kids this weekend -- we went about 40 miles north of home to photograph the migrating eagles that spend winters in and around Grafton, Illinois (and the beautiful bluffs that hug the "great river road" between Alton and Grafton). Here is one of my favorite eagle pics...

There were plenty of other birds "fishing" on the river...'s never too soon to get the kids involved in photography!

My eight year-old was pretty proud of his bird shots. :)

My kids in the "photobooth"...

Here's something fun to try -- whether you are an amatuer, pro, or aspiring pro photographer. Remember back in the days before digital photography you could find "photo booths" in arcades or other places? With digital capture it's fun to recreate the photo booth experience -- and you don't really even need a booth! Just some people who want to ham it up in front of a camera and a nice flat or neutral background. You can even have someone (like a mom, dad or grandparent) hold a cloth in front of the camera and whish it away real quick while telling the subject to make as many funny faces as they can in ten seconds. With your digital camera you just keep clicking away! Warning -- you may find yourself giggling along with the kiddos (or the "adultos..." LOL)

Here are my little munchkins playing photobooth at their Grandma and Grandpa's house...
