I decided to take this week to try different things with portraits. Thankfully my kids aren’t yet camera-shy! I took a few in the playground. The sun was still really sharp and stark, so I tried to get the lighting on the faces even, letting the background blow out a bit. A very shallow depth of field helped blur the background so it would not distract from the face.
This is one of the shots. I liked the high key tone of the image, with similar colours in the foreground and background. She loves the dry river bed at the playground. I blame Makka Pakka (“In The Nightgarden”) for her fascination with rocks!
She can be such a little angel, but so strong-willed…
I will post more shots tomorrow. My husband is flying out early tomorrow morning, so it is going to be a really long day for us. So I am going to bed a little earlier than normal.
