My trip to Colorado in April inspired me in many ways. One of those was in using my flash more in my photography. So earlier this week, I decided to just get out there and play with it. Thankfully Boo was willing to be my model. 😉
I enjoyed it 😉 Purposely, I chose to do it in the bright afternoon sun. Why? Because the conditions were NOT exactly ideal…and because they never are when we want them too. I wanted to play with them in a less-than-ideal-situation partly because if we always sit around waiting for the perfect picture taking situation to happen… we’d wouldn’t get many pictures taken!
(the book and pen were her choice – not mine! 😉 I was just glad she was letting me snap her picture 😉 ) Good chance to play with rim lighting.
I think this is my favourite picture of the afternoon. It’s something about her expression, I can’t explain it. Almost as if there’s a hint of the woman she’s going to grow up into. One of those “catching a moment” pictures
P.s. Note to self: If you’re planning to play with your flashes…it might not be the best idea to a get a five year old who doesn’t usually sit still anyways…to be your model. 😉
