The BC Divas

I belong to a book club.  We call ourselves the Book Club Divas.  Over the years (at least 15) new divas has joined and left us too.  We number 11 now - perfect - in every way.  We women care about each other.  They are my closest friends.  I love each and every one of them.  We take turns hosting our annual Christmas Party.  I am the self-appointed photographer of our group.  I am trying to master the manual mode on my dslr camera.  It's a love/hate relationship.  Recently I purchased a SB-700 speedlight.  I'd really like to use it tomorrow night for our group photo.   I practiced for quite a while today taking self-portraits hoping to simulate the situation tomorrow night.  Wish me luck!

Love the HO HO HO addition to your lovely photo. Hope it turns out as you would like. I love photography, but some shots just escape me, and I too have not been able to master the manual settings on my DLSR camera. Have never been part of one, but a book club sounds nice. Have a great party, and look forward to the photos if you share some. Happy Tuesday :)

I like the "selfie"! Love how you are always challenging yourself that way. I did one of those timer photos at my mother's 93rd birthday in August. It was a beautiful day outside and there were 17 of us. Two tries and they were both "okay." However, my camera was lower than the group, which made for less than flattering views of men in shorts! :-)

Pat, this would make a lovely Christmas card to send out or share on other social media sites. Merry Christmas to you.

Your club sounds lovely and life giving! Best wishes with the speed light! I have yet to tackle flash. Manual shooting will be your best friend once you get it. Promise!
