photography lesson


My friend Jill is a great photographer. She's always encouraging me to take lots of pictures, because with kids it's hard to get a good one. She also tells me to get on their level and shoot in natural light. The other day is was overcast and Cameron and I were inside. She was playing with her Little Einstein figures and I convinced her to line them up on the windowsill. I grabbed the camera and took a ton of pictures. She insisted that we take pictures of the Einsteins too. Finally, the last picture was this sweet shot. The scary part was working with it in my photo program. I converted it to black and white and cropped it crazy close to just frame her face. Cropping that severely hurt a little, I guess I ought to get over it though if I'm going to get shots like this. Enjoy! (And would you believe that this sweet face is currently covered in blue marker? When mom stops paying attention..... look out!)

Great shot. One light source, good contrast. From the artist in me.
