Light is Everything!

Puddle Pics

Well, we finally got a nice day today. It took about 3.9 seconds to get out the door and out for a walk with the kids. Phoebe put her rubber boots on so she could giver down the street and straight through the puddles – every 3 year olds dream, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I brought out the 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR lens for this little shoot today.

The reach is nice, especially for the reflection shots I *tried* to get but proved elusive and with lots of light you don’t need to worry about f stops as much. It’s always good to just get out and enjoy taking pictures! ๐Ÿ™‚

My favorite image of the day was this one. It was taken after we got home and she was standing in the overhead garage door space. The lighting was super rad and I caught it out of the corner of my eye. I spun around and with the camera in continuous I banged off some shots. I just really love the beautiful contrast to the light, almost got a Rembrandt light pattern out of the deal! ๐Ÿ™‚
