I had two photo sessions this week. One improvised one on Friday and another one on Sunday. I wasn’t feeling inspired and it shows, I think.
Friday, I had planned an art activity for the girls : drawing with water soluble crayons and then painting water over the crayon. I tried it and it’s cool. Souricette 1 was really into it. Souricette 2 was more interested in painting with the water. One big positive is that the amount of mess that souricette 2 could produce was limited. Painting with water. That’s a keeper. Anyway, I was watching them and realized I should be snapping away rather than just hanging out. So I snapped away. It was evening and it turns out that there is quite a bit of movement during creative work. So lots of blurriness. I got rid of the too blurry ones but I kind of like the movement suggested in some of them. The background is also less distracting than I thought it would be and the girls are remarkably coordinated. Just an accident. Anyway, these have absolutely no artistic merit but I still like them.
Sunday, we went to the park. I had this idea of sitting in this big round swing with souricette 1 and getting some nice shots of us spinning. You know the kind. With souricette 1 in focus and the background blurry. But my shutter speed was too fast. I need to learn more about that thing. I should probably have used a smaller aperture to get the desired blur. Well, I got some good action freezing shots.
