Blake was amazed by the train at the mall

Day 49

February 18, 2011

Today Blake and I met up with a couple other moms and kids at the Colorado Railroad Museum.  It was our first meet up as part of a meet up group that recently formed in my area for moms interested in photography.  It was fun.  I feel like I didn’t get very many good pictures because I was to busy chasing the babe.  Plus the light was very harsh and Blake pulled his recent “look anywhere but at mommy as soon as she even thinks about pointing the camera” attitude.

These are two of the only salvageable pictures I got of Blake.  I can’t figure out how to completely get rid of the green color cast.

He got really dirty playing around in the dirt with the other kids.  He had fun!

Day 36

February 5, 2011

Another cold snowy day.  I set up Blake’s train track on the coffee table so we could play this afternoon and left it there so I could take pictures.  I tried to incorporate more of the the week 5 of the Two Peas tutorial again and some other composition rules I’m familiar with.  I’m still learning about my flash but today I broke it out out of necessity.  I bounced it off of our white ceilings.  I tried to keep an eye out for the rule of thirds, leading lines, and different perspectives.
