Week 3 - Day 21 - May 21, 2009, "Mother and Child" Winner of Week 3 in Viewer Poll


When I first starting this project I figured all my photos would be mostly nature shots because I did not like to try and take people photos unless they were in a sporting event. I'm finding that I'm enjoying taking people photos, and have even begun to be more bold in asking to take photos of people. This morning when I was riding the TCAT I notice this women with her children. She had such a loving look at her children, I asked if I could take her photo. She said yes, and I'm really glad that she did.

I'll post the lessons and photo setting tomorrow. It's past my bed time right now.

Lessons:
  • Be ready with a camera. The opportunities come at all times.
  • Be a little bolder (and polite), and ask more people if I may take their photo.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/8, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 81mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, hand held, and I spilled my coffee in my lap while I was taking the photo.

This photo was voted best photo in the third week viewer poll.
