Last week we went out to the country to visit our Granna. We sat on the porch and did nothing. Doing nothing sometimes means doing everything.
I always take my camera out to the country and was debating on which lenses to bring. I settled on just one, my Canon 100mm 2.8. I use this lens mainly for macro shots, but when I was forced to use it since it was all I had with me, I remembered that it shoots beautiful portraits also.
She was sitting about 3 feet away from me, swinging back and forth, eating an ice cream cone. And I was taking her all in.
She’s shown a big interest lately in taking pictures. I can’t imagine where she gets that from!
And so I put the strap around her neck and let her hold my camera to see her world through my lens.
I set the camera to f/3.5 in Av mode, and I love the shots she took!
(I didn’t edit these other than changing a few to black and white.)
She has an eye for composition!
Although we might need to have a lesson in focusing… 😉
This was my favorite.
“Here Momma, you take my picture, and I’ll take yours.”
I’m thankful that she shares this interest with me. One day I might end up as her assistant!
