In Photography

We had a little cabin fever today, so I asked Annika if I could take a few pictures of her.  Surprisingly, she agreed.  So I sat her at the kitchen table, pointed a flash at the wall to her right, and pointed the flash on my camera straight up and away I went.  I used Canon’s 100 mm f/2.8 lens because I wanted to get close, and it’s such a beautiful lens.  These were all taken at 1/200 sec, f/2.8, ISO 100.  I set the flashes manually so the light coming from the side would be stronger.

First, the silly faces:

Annika silly face

little wacky girl

Googly eyes

Anybody who knows me is saying “We know where she got THAT from!”  Haha

Now for the “Mom, I don’t know how I feel about that camera pointing at me…” shots.

Annika is shy

These I converted to black and white using the “black and white with orange filter” setting.  I like that best for people, personally.

Now for my favorites:

Annika is lovely

Beautiful Annika

Annika laughs

She is just as lovable as she is lovely.  I am a lucky mama.
