Christmas Pictures

I made this photo collage of Megan tonight. I was surprised over how much easier it was than I thought it would be. Thank goodness for that.
But why is so hard to take good pictures? I feel like I am so close but still so far away. I struggle with how to keep my picture Bright; because that is what I like, But without washing out any color. I am also struggling with keeping everything is focus including the eyes and my final struggle is keeping skin tones natural. This sounds like a lot doesn't it. I have read and practiced and it is so hard to not be frustrated. And the kids don't really want to sit and wait for me to figure it out on them. Bless there hearts I feel sorry for them sometimes. I wish our local college offered more courses. They do have a basic Photography course they offer. But it is $650 and they only more recently went digital. I keep debating if I should risk the money, I would be ecstatic if I gained in the area I am lacking but I would be really sad if I waste my money and not gain. I have to do something though because I am really impatient.

These are a few of the pictures I took tonight of the kids.

We still have to get together this week to take our family picture for our Christmas cards. I can't believe Christmas is only a week and a half away and I do not even have the picture taken yet. I am slack!!
