A FEW OF MY FAVORITE SUBJECTS ATLANTA ~ MARIETTA, GA PHOTOGRAPHER
Oh no! Mom is taking our photo again! A few of my favorite photography subjects happen to be my daughter who is almost 2, my dog who will be 13 Christmas Eve and our kitten who is about 9 months.
Whether I’m renting from my favorite photography rental place Aperturent or I just bought a new piece of equipment I need practice using it before I go out on a paid shoot. Today I happened to just receive my new lens. I got the Canon 2.8 24-70 and couldn’t wait to try it out!
Tonight I had just a few minutes to get my camera out and take a few practice shots with a few of my favorite subjects. Of course they are the ideal subject because they never do what I ask them to do, so it makes it real. If I get a few good shots they make me a better photographer when I’m out shooting for paid sessions.
Last year I remember getting my camera out and playing around. I sure feel like I have come so far in just a year and I look forward to where I might be next year. Last year I couldn’t quite figure out how to make the really pretty bokeh.
I really wanted to create the pretty Christmas tree photo last year since my daughter had just turned one. I wanted to take the perfect photos Christmas morning. I know there is no way to plan the perfect photo when it comes to Christmas morning but, I do feel like this year I will be well prepared for at least a few great candid shots.
My daughter didn’t want to sit one time in her chair for me tonight. Well that is until I said, “Fine, if you don’t want to sit Meeko (the dog) will do it for me.” Then of course I had to put our newest addition Scarlett in the chair. She just had surgery this past week. She is ready to have her elizabethan collar gone already! So I’m sure I’ll look back on these photos and remember the memory they created. Photos are all about bringing us back to a moment in time and I’ll cherish these more tomorrow then I do tonight.
I learn so much every single time I pick up my camera whether it be for a paid session or a practice session!
