Hope your week is off to a good start and that you had a great Mother's Day!
Ok if you have been following my blog posts you know about my challenges of photographing my two youngest granddaughters. The last blog that I wrote about them was my new plan of attack using the tripod to photograph the two year old, which worked for getting the full length shots, but not for close-ups. Well we did another session a few weeks later to attempt to get some close ups. So the plan was to have Ava (she’s the two year old) sitting on a stool that was just high enough, that she would not be able to get down from without help and have Olivia (the six year old) stand next to her. I was able to get a few shots of both of them together and some of just Ava before she (Ava) lost interest and needed a break. Then I worked with Olivia who has a longer attention span, which allowed me to get some nice shots. At the point that Olivia needed a break, I thought we’d try to get some more of Ava and placed her back on the stool, but she wasn’t having anything to do with it. She had such a sad look on her face, and she ended up holding her arms out saying, HELP ME, HELP ME, wanting us to get her down. In trying to distract her from getting down, we (my daughter and I) were pretending to tickle each other and Ava was tempted to smile but wasn’t sure she wanted to give in completely, we got what looks like a half smile (it makes me chuckle when I see it). Can you figure out the order in which they were taken? With Ava you had better work fast and get what you can in the first few minutes because she over it and on to doing what she wants which is behind the camera and not in front of it. Anybody want to volunteer to be my assistant or photographer the next time? Lol ;~D
Thank you for viewing and visiting my blog. Have a great day!
