My trial and error - Nikon D5100

I finished my 2 days course for Basic DSLR..
Now I understand a little more about DSLR camera, taking pictures with right aperture, shutter speed with depth of field, I snap shoot some pictures because it's snowing this afternoon, trying to see if I can use A or S or P setting for shooting without using any AUTO FOCUS..

My newest toy.

My dear husband bought me a nice camera, Nikon D5100.So, I was anxious to play and shoot pictures with my collections.
Most of the time, I have no clue on all the camera language, like what is AF, P.. and when or what setting for ISO, Aperture, , all I want is to shoot close up picture like picture in magazine or in other bloggers that post pretty pictures on their web page.
I have lots to learn, need to start from the basic..All these picture being touch up in my PSD, I just want to looks like a pro pictures, or picture that bright my day...
Enjoy!Kitty n Fishy

My latest hot hobby

This is a hobby I am quite into it..

I took a short class in Michael Craft & Art last weekend on how to decorate Cake pops.
We practice on Rice Krispy first, then start to decorate it, it looks so nice and simple on the magazine or some blogger post, and it's not easy at all, trying to decorate with icing, sugar melt is quite a challenge..

I did some, but I am not ready to post those picture, but tonight, I practice deco on Marshmallow. and beside, it's Pot Luck tomorrow, I will let my colleague's to be the first to try it!
Poor team-mate... I am obsess in Cake pops but not good at decorating, so I draw....

The short summary of what happenings for pass few months...

It has been a while logging here..
There's so much happening, father is doing ok, not much better in health, but he is always a happy man to be with, my father never troble us, but it's us to feel sorry for him and wanting to do more for him to return his cares to us.

Eldest Sister, brothers and their wife were here to visit father, we were all busy to spent time as a family. These are precious time to have family together, I was happy to see them here but were so sad to see them leave...

Ar Boy is in Grade 4 now, met his teacher last week, the feedback was positive, I hope he will keep it up and prepare for middle school next year. Still can't discover his talents yet, I wish there is some, so I can help him to starts his future..
I was helping him on his school project, he needs to draw a potrait of himself, his art skill is terrible, only draw stick man, not artistic at all, so I got him practise to draw lines and circle for hour, then he started to learn how to draw..
I convince him to take art lesson, he resists, I said I will teach him, and he ran away... for sure he ain't got my genes in art...

Here's the digital photo art I did last weekend, it has been a while I touch my Wacom tablet and my photoshop.. these pictures are from last April, he is out-grow a little taller...

These post specially to my family, friends - and to Julie Yu. Nice chatting with her...
