I usually don’t do photoshoots with the kids. It’s too much work and I prefer to take pictures of them just being themselves, rather than with props or posed. However I am taking holiday pictures every month so that the calendars I make for the grandparents at Christmas are simplified.
Tonight I asked my husband to help out and he bribed them with candy covered yogurt bites (or basically candy). I only got a few good ones and I have to say that I am now really wanting a 35mm lens. I just don’t have enough room inside my house for the 50mm, but I don’t have enough light to use my kit lens.
I had to fix the white balance on all of these, but I either make them too green/cyan or too yellow/red. I also bounced my speedlight off a window (normally I bounce off a wall) and it was much brighter than I expected. I am still learning how to meter while using my speedlight, so there are some spots that are blown out. I plan to attempt another St. Patty’s day photoshoot…but probably something outside with some green/St Patty’s day themed clothing. These are just boring to me!
