What I Learned

This week over at Click It Up A Notch we learned about food photography. I tried taking some picture of my food while it was a work in progress and it wasn't glamorous. I feel in love with my kitchen all over again. Not this actual kitchen that I have in the house because it is tiny. While I am baking I am dreaming of my dream kitchen. :) I love what I learned and hope to put it to some good use soon. Courtney a link up for things that people have learned during the week and then photographed it. This week has been a fun week because of the holiday we had Steve home on Thursday. We took advantage of him being home and checked out a new park.

Okay all this rambling to say that this week I let go of what people would think of me when they see me taking pictures and climbed under this climbing net. I let go of the fact that I was going to be covered in dirt and the fact that I was nervous about Jackson climbing the net. (I am still learning to be a mother of boys) :)

So lying flat on my back I was able to catch this. It may not be perfect but I love that I have stepped outside my comfort zone and caught a real moment of Jackson being Jackson.

This is SOOC, 55MM, ISO 100, SS 160, f 2.5. Let me know what you think!!

Great job getting outside your comfort zone!! Isn't it fun how photography can do that :O) This looks great! Especially since it was taken in full sun! Good thinking to go underneath the net to get a different angle and shade his face! Watch the hand crops (difficult with a moving toddler). I love the composition too with his head in the top right corner. It makes it seem like he is climbing :O)

Great Capture! Sometimes it's so worth getting down in the dirt. Such a precious child.
