Photo shoot yesterday
I did the photo shoot of the friend of the pregnant lady whose pictures I took a month or so ago, with her hubby and kids and also one of her (pregnant) friends.
It was actually a whole lot of fun. I left in a really good mood and was thinking how much I would like to be a photographer by profession.
How cute is this? The girl on the right, Paige, does this every time you tell her to smile. By the way, they had two changes of clothes, but by the end of the shoot (notice that late-afternoon light!) they were naked and SO HAPPY. :)
There is a lot in the pictures that I am kicking myself over. A bunch are crooked.. they look straight but the horizon is crooked(?!). This was one of those, but I managed to fix it mostly. I also f'd up and my ISO was set to like 600 for the first half of the pics. DURRRR. Um, yeah, I have to remember to do the ISO/WB/Size check before I start snapping. Isn't there a mnemonic device to remember that? I guess I can make my own...
I also notice that I often go TOO close. I mean, I think sometimes it's hard not to... I think I just have to remember to take another step backwards. Give the subjects some breathing room, opportunity for creative composition, and me some room if I want to crop.
But anyway, I am happy with a few of the pics. And that is good. :) Also, I took the P&S with me today to the doggy shelter and, combined with the pics I took Saturday, I have sent pictures of *20* different dogs for the website. That probably catches up the website to the shelter "inventory" which probably never, ever happens. The P&S pics were CRAP - I was holding a dog (or two) with one hand and the camera with the other, so I dunno how much you can expect.. But something blurry is better than nothing at all. :) So yay!
