My first "job"

Not sure how else to title it, it wasn't a job since I refused to let them pay me. I guess I should say my first time going somewhere specifically to take pictures of someone else's child. There that works. I learned a lot there, and I would have done a lot different. Not my best stuff.

First off 5:30 the sun is at a bad spot, and the shade it too dark! A lot of my pictures were at 1600 ISO YIKES! Also since it was darker I need more light, all the light I could get so I had my F stop the lowest it would go, trying to keep my shutter speed reasonable for a fast little 2 year old sweetheart. Yeah not working really well. Since she was running around and I had a high aperture the ones which she was far away were no where near as crisp as I would have liked. I was tempted to throw it into auto. I also thought I wouldn't bother with a reflector, but if I ever take pictures at that time again, I will bring one, for sure. Hopefully they liked them well enough. I do not think they are my very best, but with such a cute subject you kind of can't go wrong!

the same settings

this one I didn't have enough time to drop the ISO as she ran into the light so I quickly thumbed my shutter speed up high enough so it wouldn't be over exposed. Most definitely should have could have been 800 ISO

I really love this one, a cute little moment between dad, and his girl

Different play

I took a few pictures of my kids and their friends, and I liked the sepia conversion with a little softening a bit better than the black and white conversion I did with the picture I love of Evan, not to mention I felt the black vignette was a bit heavy. I decided to re-do the picture so here it is..
