365 days to better photography

Day 34

February 3, 2011

Today was one of those days where being a mom and gross went hand in hand.  I’ll spare you to many of the details but after story time I took Blake over to an indoor play area.  I forked over the almost $8 bucks to get in and then we left less than 20 minutes later because I rarely remember to bring an extra pair of pants for the babe anymore.    He got a nice long bath when we got home!   So no pictures from the play place today.  We still have the grossness of potty training to look forward too…blech.

After the I put Blake down for a nap I decided to at least attempt week 5 of the Two Peas Tutorial: Composition.

I usually loosely keep the rule of thirds in mind so that wasn’t difficult.  Also, the cropping tool in Lightroom defaults to a grid divided into thirds.  The baby’s head is right at two intersecting lines.

In this picture I applied the rule of thirds (the intersecting line is right at the spot where all three heads meet) and filled the frame (as much as could with my 50mm 1.8 lens)

And thanks to my mother-in-law who gave us this beautiful figure right after Blake was born. 🙂
