Wordless Wednesday

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

So, I have been trying to take better advantage of my DSLR camera and learn more about photography. I've always been interested, and since there is a plethora of information on the web I figured I'd try to hone my skill. So, how's it going??? Let's just say that it might take a while ;)

To that end, however, I decided to start entering some of the weekly blog photo challenges. This week's i Heart Faces theme was "whimsy." I was behind the curve ball on timing but thought I'd take the kids outside to relax in the hammock and see what developed. I didn't want to dress them up or pose them. I wanted candid shots. They can be so sweet and funny, I was fairly confident that if I kept snapping I'd get something I could use.

This is what I got:


Not exactly what I was going for! Ah well, there's always next week.

I did manage to capture this though:



Not whimsical exactly, but definitely a keeper ;)

Some of the best shots are the ones that just happen, aren't they? For my photo this week, I was trying so hard to get my 4 year old to smile. Of course, he refused. When I just started snapping pictures, I actually got a beautiful shot. Enjoy your photography experiment. Looking good so far!
