When I first started dabbling into photography, I focused on things that generally didn’t move. Flowers, buttons, textures, etc… were my focus. I later expanded to include panoramas of landscapes and cityscapes but that still involved mostly non-moving subjects. Lately though (and by lately, I mean the last 2 years or so) I’ve started focusing a little more on people. It’s actually a challenge because expressions come and go quickly. I like children though. They have expressions without restraint. Most people start putting on their camera-faces as soon as I pull out the big fat camera.
Here’s a few of my nieces (2nd cousins..? whatever).
Here’s some examples (amateur, I know) of kids I’ve been shooting.
Lately, my camera has been having problems functioning and I’m still trying to get my hands on a T2i. It is sold out everywhere. I decided against a 7D because I’m just not that professional. Instead I’m going to spend the extra 800 dollars on a nice new lens. I will probably need a new camera in about three years anyway, again.
Those were fun to look at. Cute kids! I have been taking pictures of the baby I watch. The problem for me is making sure he doesn’t crawl or roll off of something and hurt himself while I am taking pictures. And that because he can’t do much or even walk and just started to crawl, it’s hard to find new ways to make a shot interesting after a while.
Well… you could always put things ON the baby like people put things on cats. It’s my next experiment lined up for my poor six nieces/nephew. :D
