I love pictures. I love fall. There’s no better combination in my opinion than those two. Add in a fall challenge and I’m in heaven! Fall is hands down one of the best seasons for photography – the colors, the colors, the colors!!! Did I mention the colors? Just breathtaking! I’m also new to the photo taking world. I’ve been wanting to learn for many years now but have never had the time or the proper equipment to do so. So when my sister asked me if I wanted her old Canon Rebel DSLR I couldn’t say no! I just won’t say WHEN she actually gave me that camera though.. 😉
My first challenge is called Project 52. I basically take photos once a week for a year. I wanted to do a 365 challenge but there’s too much going on right now and I didn’t want to overwhelm myself right off the bat. I may take pictures more than once a week or maybe even less (hopefully not!), learn a bunch of new techniques along the way and hopefully get good (and bad) criticisms on my photos.
Without further ado..
Kids (well, babies) are by far the most difficult to photograph. I really struggle with how to capture Gabriel without it being blurry or disjointed. I’ve read to keep the shutter speed at around 1/125 for children but it doesn’t always happen indoors with the lack of light. I’m trying to work with it but it’s a big learning curve for me. If only he would just.sit.still!!! At least for a minute…or two…
Having said that, older children are great! Sofia is awesome to photograph (when she’s in the mood that is!!) and we’ve been able to capture a lot of great shots. She doesn’t like to admit it, but she enjoys looking at the pictures and posing.
I just realized all my photos posted are to the ‘right’ of view. This was NOT deliberate and I promise, I DO have other views. They just didn’t turn out..
What happens when you roll around in the leaves, weeds, and grass to shoot. It’s an itchy job, but I’ll take it!
My loves ❤
