I Heart Toes!

   This week the theme at " faces" is "anything but a face."   This photo of our daughter is from the archives, but I thought it would be great for this theme.

Spinning at the Park

This little girl had so much fun spinning in circles while I was trying to photograph her!

     Unfortunately, just looking at this picture, or watching her going around, and around, and around, just makes me sick to my stomach.  And so here is a shot of her that I like much better!

Sunset Portraits

     Tonight I took my son out to do some sunset portraits!

     We started about half an hour before sunset, but it got dark fast!

     He is quite a goof ball and doesn't need too much coaching for his poses.  The hardest part is getting him to stay in one spot long enough to take a few photos.  I'd take a few photos and then the moment I'd step over to adjust a flash, or change a setting on my camera, he'd be gone!

And one of his cheesy poses!

If you're interested in the Strobist information, here was my setup:
    All manual settings - ISO 800, F 5.6 - 8, 1/80 - 125
    Yongnuo 560 Speedlight - high and to the camera's left - Full Power shot through an Umbrella with a 1/2 CTO gel.  Fired optically by the other flash.
    Cobra 240 Speedlight - On camera Right, even with my son - 1/2 power, full CTO Gel, triggered by Youngnuo RF602 radio triggers.

Watching the Big Game

    Our family has always enjoyed curling up on the couch to watch a good football game together.  There's just nothing more relaxing on a Sunday afternoon, than to drift off to a little nap while watching the game.   This time, our daughter got the game to herself, and I must say that she looks quite relaxed!

   We sure hate to see the end of the football season!  (Hopefully, our teams will do better next year!)

Two Years Old!

      My son just turned two!  I can't believe how fast the time has flown!  He is growing into such a handsome little man!
     The day before his second birthday, I asked for just a few minutes of his precious time (he's so busy, you know) to take a few pictures to mark the historic date.   Here is what I got:

So much fun!
