Favorites from February

I looked back through the pictures I took in February and pulled out a couple of my favorites. I’m trying to be more intentional about capturing life. Funny that a photographer has to remind herself to get her camera out to capture her family. Click on any picture to see them larger.

The picture above that looks like the girl is falling – she’s not! She was doing a spin jump turn-thing and I happened to stop the motion with a fast shutter speed. I love it!

Did you capture some images in February that you love ?

Feb’s Photo Challenge

For someone who has gotten used to having mostly a zoom lens on my camera for the past four years, shooting with a prime lens, and forcing my feet to do the zooming, was challenging at first. Using a zoom lens makes it easy to adjust your optical distance to the subject. A prime lens forces you to think more about the composition.

I did several shoots this month using my Canon 50mm 1.8 on my 7d mark ii. That’s like an 80mm or 85mm on a full-frame. The first shoot was with a Philly photographer who was visiting Miami. We went to Wynwood Walls and used my younger daughter as a model.

Side note: I’m still using a really small resolution size for the photos because this blog’s storage is almost full!

I also had Jes model for me.

I also got to do a lifestyle session with two young kids. It was such a fun session! This was more challenging, being inside and having to account for furniture and small spaces.

For March the challenge is going to be to use one aperture for a whole shoot!
