I don't have a lot of time to practice with my new lense right now, but here are some shots I got the other day.
Sometimes the kids just strike a pose and tell me to take a picture. This one above was like that.
This one was amazing. The light was coming through the window just right so I could get some "catch lights" in her eyes. She had so much fun changing her pose each time I snapped the shutter.
This one also has the wonderful "catch light" but her fingernails are brighter and more colorful. I just love using natural light. Flashes tend to wash out parts of the picture, but if you can take pictures next to a window with lots of light, it is just perfect. Just adjust the aperture and shoot away!
I just couldn't pass this one up. She had her hands and legs crossed perfectly to dislplay her newly painted nails!
I did a little "Lomo" editing on this photo. It turned out pretty good.
Here is the same picture SOOC (Straight out of camera). I think it turned out pretty good. No editing needed (that is why I tried the Lomo editing to change it to a different style).
Overall this was a fun evening of photography. I hope to have more opportunities like this. Unfortunately since I am working long tax season hours, I may not get to many opportunities like this until after April 15th.
