I know it’s a day late, but better than never. I think I lost an entire day due to an excrutiating migraine. So if you have been trying to reach me by email since Thursday evening, I have been a bit behind on correspondences due to what I like to call THE. WORST. HEADACHE. EVER. Luckily I am back to normal today and am working on getting all caught up, so without further adieu, here is some of my little one.
And for your mommies with a camera who love to take your own pictures of your little ones, I’ll describe my setup. One of the things I love the MOST about our home is that the entire front of the house is windows, so we having amazing natural light in our living room. Since my two year old has an attention span of about 2.5 seconds, I just sat her on a stool, then later on her beach chair (whatever works!) with her face towards the window at a slight angle and my back to the window. That’s how you get some amazing catchlights in their eyes.
These are pretty grainy since it was an impromptu session and I didn’t lower my ISO, and I am playing with a new processing technique that is vastly different from my normal style, and I wanted to add some texture to these…. hey, it’s MY kid so I get to play! In case you were wondering they were shot with a Canon 5D, 85 mm 1.8 lens (my FAVORITE LENS!) with apertures between 1.8 – 4.5 and varying shutter speeds.
