Week 19, Day 136, September 6, 2009, "Good Father"

We spent the day with family at my Uncle's pond. My cousin Jeff and his wife Jamie just had their second child Robbie.

It's been a while since I used a people photo, so I thought I'd post this one. Jeff is a great father, and I'm very happy for him and his family.

Lessons Learned:

  • When taking portraits try taking photos from various angles. I wish I had spent more time trying various angles. I find this one interesting. We seem to be the observer, but he seems unaware of us (the camera). I like the effect, but I think there could be some improvements made.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/20 sec, Aperture f/6.3, ISO 100, Focal Length 21 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 34mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, handheld.

That baby is sooooo tiny! :) Something I think is neat to photograph is the hand of the father holding the baby. I think it is such a striking juxtaposition of a large adult hand with a fragile newborn. Keep on shooting, Steve! You're doing a great job.

Jen, Thank you for that useful tip. It's an excellent idea. I might try that one today.
