I am a part time photographer based in the Western Suburbs of Chicago just getting by business off the ground. I am a mother of two crazy and wonderful kids and wife to an amazing man. I am constantly seeking the perfect light to capture all the beauty that surrounds me.
This image was taken as part of project called Project Portraits that I participate in with a few wonderfully talented photographer friends from all around the world. Every month we choose an exercise loosely based on Chris Orwig’s book, People Pictures, 30 exercises For Creating Authentic Photographs. The prompt for this week was was creative location. I did not have much to work with just a tiny, cramped and dirty space in my yard but there was some beautiful filtered light so I just “had” to get my daughter out there for a shot or two.
The image was shot in RAW on my Canon 50D and processed in Lightroom
Settings were: f/2.0 ISO 160 SS 640
What critique from Chic Critique Forum did you find helpful after sharing this image?
I had so many wonderful comments on this image but I think what was the most helpful with this particular image was to go with my heart…a lesson helpful in everything not just photography.
