Last night during, you guessed it, football practice, I took a few pictures of the kiddos. Nothing too exciting… I just like to pull the ol’ Nikon out every now and then to capture a little of the same old same old.
Here’s my dude. Just hanging out. Asher is always a willing participant when momma wants to snap a few pictures. He really doesn’t like having his picture taken, but he loves his momma more than he dislikes the camera.
And he’s just got that smile. I can’t resist him.
He endures. Photogenically.
And I am so glad I did. Just look at the difference. The same time of day, same person, same conditions. Just a different direction. A different light.
And the difference is, well, see for yourself.
I thought maybe a few of you might struggle with the same thing.
So, if you share my struggle and you’re hoping to get a shot you’re really going to love, just keep on shooting. Move around your subject, take pictures from every angle. And eventually you’ll hit on it… when the light is just right.
Early evening is a really good time. And last night the clouds were covering the sun just enough to keep any shadows at bay. Who’d have thought a football stadium would be such a great backdrop?
Oh, those dimples.
Got a tip of your own to help with lighting, or composition (oh please), or focus (say you do!)? Please share!
