This is a little embarrassing to admit but it was only recently that I learned how to use the manual mode on our camera. For years, we had it set on automatic because it was the quickest and easiest way. Now that I am getting used to photographing on manual, and Darren still has no desire to learn, it leaves me with no choice but to test the light on him when we take blog photos. After a few weeks of doing this, I've accumulated a few photos of him. While I've deleted most, I kept some of the most recent ones to share. So everyone, say "hello" to Darren. When I'm not standing in front of a wall, he takes all my photos. Oh and yeah, he's pretty much awesome. :)

  2. You're really good at this for a beginner Khatu! The photos of Darren turned out really nice and I love how you played with the lighting...or was that by chance? :) Love your new blog heading too!

  3. Hello Darren! You two are one lovely, stylish couple! Manual mode can seem intimidating, but once you get a hang of it, it's pretty awesome. Those photos are really good, Khatu! I love the lighting too.

  17. Wow!! Your hubby has swag that has not been represented in the male community in awhile. I thin that he should start his own fashion blog.

  18. haha, that's how John and I do photos...I take test shots of him and then we switch places. Darren is one dapper fella and I think you should turn this into a regular feature! :)

    1. LOL!!! Didn't even notice. I guess he figures if it ain't "broke" no need to fix it! LOL!!!

  20. He is such a snazzy dresser too! You took great pics of him!

  21. Aloha, Darren! He is a great dresser... You two probably super cute together on the street. My husband is a T-Shirt and jeans (or shorts) kind of dude. And flip flops. UGH. When we're together, he feels uncomfortable, because we don't "match" as a couple. LOL.

    Love + aloha,

  23. I agree with others about turning this into a regular feature of your blog. I shop for my husband, and love to get ideas on how to dress him ;)

  24. your hubby is a great dresser. And so I thought that my husband is the only one who refuses to learn the other settings in our camera but the automatic mode, i don't feel frustrated anymore.... and i test it on him too, lol
