I had a fun morning yesterday. I had arranged with Angie to shoot some photographs of Austin since I really had the chance to do that. I took one Nikon SB910 speed light, a 2 X 2 softbox, and a reflector to her home. As you can see from this first image Gabby was most helpful in working with Austin. He is such a happy little guy it was hard to find a time that he wasn’t smiling but I managed with this image. 🙂
Normally Gabby is not fond of posing for me but she cooperated somewhat for this image. I gained a new respect for child photographers after the session yesterday. As a Grandpa it was a hoot but as a photographer trying to get a wonderful image it was a real challenge. So I had this vision in my mind when I went over there of what I wanted to capture and how I wanted to do it. I wasn’t successful but came away with some really nice images. I’ll show those at a later date.
Josh was in preschool so it was a little easier to control the situation but any semblance of control was just that, a semblance.
I had a lot of fun with Gabby and Austin. I want to try some more because it is good practice I just need to lower my expectations and enjoy the Grandpa angle. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
