Low-Light Photography And A Big Send Off

Have you ever had the best intentions of taking lots of photos at an event only to get so involved in the event it starts to get dark before you pick up the camera? Time to test out your low-light photography skills.

D and I spent last week hanging out with the kids. L and M drove all the way from Kentucky to Kansas for one last visit before they head overseas. We all met up at #7’s house and when K was not at work we kidnapped him as well.

#7 thought it would be nice to have a party for L and M before they left. They were tired and stressed from the moving process but agreed it might be fun. We called/messaged/and e-mailed family and friends who live fairly close by, fired up the grill, tossed on the burgers, and had a good ol’ pot-luck style bar-b-que.

of pictures for
L and M to have after the party. Then I realized it was starting to get dark and I had not even taken my camera out of the bag!
I had to test out my low-light photography skills.

 No; not everything I took came out a keeper but I did manage to snap about thirty images for them before it was totally dark out there.

We have brought their little Pablo dog home to hang out with usoutdoor-night-photography-8603 while they are gone; he seems to be adjusting well. Bella’s not sure about this arrangement yet. She’s not used to sharing the attention.

L and M are now spending a few days with his family and early next week will arrive at their new home in Germany. I am very excited for them they are going to have all kinds of adventures; there’s so many awesome places to visit while they are there and they will have three years to see them all!

I just hope they remember to take the camera out of the bag.


The WP media library seems to be having some issues today and I was unable to attach this information to the images. Sorry about that I’m sure they will get it fixed soon.
