Good Morning All!
I'm trying to do a better job at blogging, although I must admit that I’ve been writing them ahead of time and scheduling them to post at a later date. When I get into writing, it’s easier to do a few at a time and then set them up to post later. As I say, you got to do whatever works. I’ve never been much of a writer, it wasn’t a strong subject for me in school, give me math and I’m good. ;~D
I had the pleasure of doing my great nephew, Kolton’s photos of him turning 6 months old in February. He wasn’t sure what to think of the whole idea, or maybe it was he didn’t know what to think of the crazy lady behind the camera, not sure which. He’s such a cutie and getting so big. He wasn’t quite able to sit by himself but his mom, Becca, was nearby to keep him safe. When it came to the bath time shots, my daughter, Dawn, helped out by blowing bubbles, which allowed Becca to stay close to Kolton for safety. I loved his expressions watching the bubbles as they floated down and trying to catch them from time to time. He was really concentrating on those bubbles, my favorite from that part of the session he almost is looking cross eyed to keep the bubbles in view.
Since he was not able to sit totally by himself, I had to do a little magic in photoshop to get the photo of him with the stuffed bears. It was created by combining a photo where Dawn was holding his hand on the left side of the picture and Becca was keeping a close eye on him from on the right side. After I got a couple pictures with him in to choose from, Becca took him out of the scene and I took another picture of just the bears. Then in Photoshop I was able to merge the two photos good enough to make it believable. Just saying, the safety of the little ones comes first and foremost. Thank you, Dawn for your help and Becca for letting me take Kolton’s pictures.
Thank you for viewing and visiting my blog. Have a great day!
P.S. As always, comments welcomed.
