Gritty and dark drama … controlled by me!
I did take more but after spending all day cleaning old 35mm positives I’m a little tired of sitting in front on my computer so I need a break!
I spent last Saturday with my Nieces and my Great Nephews in a colourful autumnal park in Henly-on-Thames.
Taking photographs of children is always challenging and I wanted to shoot most of the images in manual mode rather than my slightly chicken stance of semi-automatic (usually AV so I can change the depth of field easily and let the camera do the rest for me).
I did take a tripod and reflector which didn’t get used – there was a couple of photos that were ruined and would have benefitted from using the reflector to soften the afternoon light – it gets dark early so we had to be at the park by 2pm in order to get some shots in but a reflector is useful in entertaining children!
I took about 400 images and a few ‘good one’s’ were out of focus which is rather annoying but happens when trying to get quick candid shots of children.
