I’ve spent quite a bit of time in the past few days playing with the kiddos outside since we’ve had beautifully sunny and unusually warm weather for the season. It has made for a number of wonderful photo opportunities because the girls are a bit more cooperative in front of the camera when they can freely run around. My goal was try to better my skills at taking backlit photos in strong sun and to learn how to make the most out of lens flare. My favorites are blow – one of each of my babies.
