Photography at home - need some help

There is one thing I love and that is taking photographs and there is nothing more I love than taking pictures of my kids. One day I may learn to use the camera to its best advantage but I love experimenting and generally taking photos. My husband uses the Camera for work so when he does not need it I he leaves it at home and I use it. These photos were taken with a Sigma prime 30mm F1.4 lens for those who it makes sense. I love this lens it sure does make the photos more defined but I can sometimes find it hard to get a clear shot. Sometimes what I think is a great shot is blurry when bigger. 

These photos do not do the lens justice I just wanted to share one of the many photos that I had taken. I am slowly learning how to take a photo, I have learned to love natural light and love a blurry back ground (technical term). I am so privileged to have a decent camera it really does make a difference to our photos and videos. 

The only issue I have is that the kids hate the camera, as soon as it comes out they hide. It takes ages to get them to smile or even look in the camera direction. 

So if you have any help at all please share.

What lenses and tips do you use for your photographs?

Here is my photos that I took: 


  1. Oh wow amazing photos. I always use my mobile phone for photos because although they're not as good quality, they are always nice and natural because I can keep it in my pocket and just whip it out when something good is happening :)

  2. Awww, they are lovely photos! I use a Nikon D40 camera that I bought 2nd hand from a friend a few years ago - I still don't have a real clue how to use it but my photography is definitely improving, slowly but surely!

  3. Wow! The close up shota are beautiful! I'd love to be able to take a good photo :) x x x

  4. Love the photos. So cute. It's hard to get all the techi stuff right. I am learning as I go with manual mode. I get temped to go back to auto sometimes but for the most part I enjoy trying to get it right. I have so much to learn and need a better lens for my camera for the shots I take. I love a good blurred back ground. Keep up the good work. Thanks for linking to Share With Me. I hope to see you again next week. #sharewithme
