I am linking up with Courtney via Click it up a Notch!
I have actually got a few new things I have learned...so which to choose. Well I'll write about them both and then decide:) First, I learned that photographing newborns is hard work! I mean sure anyone can snap a picture of a cute newborn that's snoozing it's day away....but when you take a picture with a purpose...that's when it gets tricky! I did my very first newborn shoot this past week. I love how I go into something semi-prepared and walk away with this wealth of new knowledge on how to make it better and easier! I now know that I should have 2-3 heaters going on instead of just the one. A bean bag is kind of a must have. A back drop stand will be my best friend! I was fairly happy that I got as many "decent" shots as I did considering this little seven day old didn't sleep a wink! And he was fed so I know he wasn't hungry:)
Second I learned how much fun shooting sports is! My first born has started soccer(and loves it)! So I snapped on my 75-300mm in hopes of catching him in some cool action. I wasn't disappointed!
I love the expression on his face! He has had two games since then and I keep snapping away to try and get some nice 'singled out' photos of him in action. It's a little tricky when I've got two other kids in tow that demand attention more than at home...gosh why can't they just occupy themselves!
I don't know...I think the newborn shoot wins it this time. I find myself wishing my friends would hurry up and have the babies they aren't even pregnant with yet so I can take their pictures!
