Sunday Snapshot: {class of 2013}

He’s a senior now.

Class of 2013.


But as sad as I am for me – my baby boy is almost college-aged! – I am excited for him.

After all, he’s a senior.

And I hope you enjoy every minute of it, son.

Just don’t forget, you’re still my baby boy.

I took these with my Nikon D90, 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. My settings for the first one were ISO 200, 38mm, f/2.8 and 1/1000. And I edited them all a smidge in LR and then in CS6 with Florabella Classic Bright, Warm Color Pop and some other minor tweaks.

When you’re ready to play along with your Sunday Snapshot, here are the deets.

1. Snapshot posts should have the photo to be considered at the TOP of their post, and should include the Sunday Snapshot button as well as a link back here to encourage others to play along.
2. Photos entered must belong to entrant.
3. Share any photography tips and/or settings on your posts for others (like me!) who are learning – this is encouraged but certainly not required.
4. I’ll review each Snapshot entry and then select a favorite to be announced on Wednesday.
5. The winning Snapshot will be selected based on composition, color, emotion, creativity and post-processing.
6. Weekly winners will be featured in a monthly Sunday Snapshot post which will be judged by y’all, the readers.
7. The winner of the monthly Sunday Snapshot will receive a photography related goody. This month I’ll be giving away a copy of my favorite photography book: Photographically Speaking. It’s goooood.
8. Rules subject to change, as necessary, to keep this fun and fruitful for everyone.
