Kids At Play- Snapshots

This is a rare moment where I'm actually going to share some of my snapshots. In all honesty I really need to get better at actually taking snapshots but I'm working on it. It always seems like more trouble than it's worth to drag my camera out and about. Obviously it's not some point and shoot I can shove in my back pocket. It's a pain in the butt and I can't say that I have a real user friendly bag. It's big and protective so it serves it's purpose but it's definitely not practical for everyday. Besides, I'd rather actually enjoy all the moments rather than miss them because I'm too busy trying to capture them.

That said, I do love to capture moments. So even if it's just my own kids playing outside or we're on an afternoon adventure I'm trying to bring my camera out more. Who says there isn't time to enjoy the moments and capture them at the same time?


  1. Beautiful! Do you use a fill flash outdoors? How do you get all those great faces with no harsh sun shadows?

  2. Thank you!

    I do sometimes use fill flash outdoors but I didn't in any of those posted. The ones at the end of the post were all done in the evening so I didn't have to worry about the harsh sun. All of the ones at the begining of the post were just good placement. I like backlighting sometimes so I shoot with the sun behind my subject. It really depends on the situation since it all changes SO fast!

  3. Love your work! I wish my snapshots looked like that :)
