I have been kicking myself for not trying very hard to take nice portaits of Maddy each month like I did with Austin. I always thought I would take MORE of her than him bnecause I am better at it now than I used to be, however having Austy as a subject put me off a little. Not because he isn't super cute (because no matter how naughty he can be he is always 100% adorable!) but because he never stays in one spot long enough to use manual settings. Since I am still without a DSLR, I have to use buttons to change exposure and focus rather than lenses. So it does take time. And as soon I get it right, he's out of the shot and in different lighting and I have to do it all again. As a result I have just been using the camera like a standard point and shoot and the photos have been uninspiring.
However after the shots I took at my friend's wedding on Saturday, I felt confident to give it a go again with a much less mobile model. Here are the results!
And one the girls set up while I was photographing the bride - it was screaming at me to pop the colour out a bit with photoshop for a bit of fun!
