I’m participating in a 52 week project with 17 other photographers. We have a theme each week, and post a picture every Friday at 9AM Est.

Our theme this week is SOOC.

If you are interested in reading more about our themes each week click here.

If you don’t know what SOOC means it simply stands for straight out of camera.

I had to google it the first time I saw it!

I took this image in January 2010. It was one of the first shots I ever took with my newly purchased DSLR.

I didn’t know what white balance meant, and had my camera set on tungston. Oops! I still love this image because it captures my Hazy J’s eyelashes, and his sweet nature.

I’ve included this shot because I think it is important for people to see that you can’t possibly understand everything when you start. You just have to do the best you can with what you know at the time!

I just took this image on Tuesday when we were heading home after receiving yearlings. Fischer exclaimed “take a picture of us running in the field.”

I just directed them to run towards our house.

This image is special to me for many reasons…

the puffy clouds of Wyoming…

the view of our home in the distance…

the special moment with my boys who are changing and growing so quickly! (Too quickly if you ask me)

If you are interested in seeing this image after pp’ing along with other images from our day of receiving cattle just click here

Now head over to Coastal Bend photographer Kelly Whatley’s blog to see her beautiful picture.

Beautiful image of your boys running, even SOOC!! And what you said about the first image is so true! I look back on old images from when I was first figuring my camera out and can’t believe that I thought I had a clue as to what I was doing lol!!

I love this post. I wish I was running alongside of Fischer and Hazy J…did they run all the way home? The grass looks so healthy. Chris must be pushing that water to all the right places…Love you, momxoxoxoxoxoxo

Kate- such great photots! I’m a sucker for eyelashes as well! You are so smart to post an early sooc….. It’s just so true how much there is to learn! I wonder sometimes I’ll ever even know just 50% of what’s out there! Great ending shot- love the freedom!

Kate your SOOC image is so soft and ethereal! It is perfect and I love that you didn’t edit it! The shot of the boys running through the great expanse is a keeper.
