ISO200 170mm f/7.1 1/80th sec Nikon D7100 I’m so happy with how this turned out. I’m under a gazebo in the middle of a small lake. Tripod with remote (hidden in the wrap). A few of these were out of focus, but I took enough that I got some that worked. There’s the challenge with self-portraits out and about right?
ISO 500 sec Nikon This may have been using a tripod (it was a while ago). i did various handheld/tripod shots in this location. From the first shoot. Using rule of thirds and trying to lower perspective to get more sky in.
ISO 200 55 mm f/5.6 1/80th sec Nikon D7100 This was in the shadow of a kind of bower in the garden. AN impromptu shot during a little bushwalk. I adjusted the image slightly in lightroom so the Golden Spiral ends exactly on his right eye and frames his face. No other re-touching was done.
ISO 200 55mm f/8.0 1/250th sec Nikon D7100 Really bright highlights on this one without AE lock. Handheld outdoors. I tried to keep those dark bushes in the background, and didn’t make the close-up quite so tight after remembering Pinterest feedback from the first shoot.
ISO 200 sec Nikon Hands down my favourite image of the series. I’d like to experiment more with water and frozen motion in future. Handheld, P mode and no post processing. I really liked capturing these moments of him playing.
ISO 200 50mm f/3.5 Nikon 1/4000th sec D7100 This is one of my favourites I think but I don’t know why. Perhaps because he’s so focused on his task. I love the shadows in the background here mirroring the branch in his hand, and the way it is divided into thirds. Handheld again for ease of toddler-following.
sec Nikon An unexpected triangle! During a visit to an animal park with the family, I loved this character and took the opportunity to snap a few shots. Handheld, locked the shutter speed at 125 to keep the sharpness.
