Triplet Photo Shoot

It was beautiful in Seattle today, so I took this opportunity to drag the triplets to the park to play with my new camera!  I started a camera class on Saturday, so I’m slowly learning my way around my new camera!

With a little bit of bribery the triplets were very happy to be my little models for the afternoon!  Gum + a trip to the park to play is guaranteed to get any trio to cooperate!!

Send me your thoughts and critiques, both good and bad – I want to continue to get better!!

    Cori, I think you did good job. Here are a few suggestions: (Keep in mind that I’m not a professional, just making my way through photography like you.) Kneel-down so you can get at eye-level with your subject. Recruit someone who wouldn’t mind being still so you can play with lighting. Have them face toward, away, etc. so you can see what kind of effect it has on your shots. Also, shooting in full-sun can be harsh on skin tones so try shooting in the morning and late evening. Other than that, just shoot away. Take photos of your kids, the dog, the Barbie doll laying on your living room floor, the salt and pepper shaker sitting on your kitchen table. Everything. You’ll get more comfortable with your camera and you’ll learn what works for you. The other thing I’d recommend is a photo editing program. Photoshop Elements is a great starting place. I don’t know if you’re shooting in manual or in auto at this point, but I found that shooting in auto in the beginning helped me to gain the confidence I needed to eventually go all gung-ho and shoot manually. Good luck! I think you’re doing great. And again, I’m not a professional. I’m just a wife and mom who’s always been passionate about photography and determined to improve what little skills I have. Have fun! :)
