I'm back to get caught up on my photo blogs... <BR> <BR> I stopped at Feb. 22nd. <BR> That day's words were "Sweet Treats" <BR> <BR> I couldn't decide what I wanted to do. I have many pictures that I didn't take that would be perfect, but I really try to use my own pictures for these. Sadly, I have many "sweet treats" I or my husband have made for parties or things, but I don't always take pictures. Something to work on, hee hee. We do make all the cakes for the partie...

Do you just stand where you are and shoot? <BR> Changing the direction you point your lens is one of the easiest ways to change your photography. Pointing your camera up at a subject gives it a feeling of greater size and prominence in the frame....
