The Camera's Been Clickin'

Okay so this'll be a first.  I've been following click it up a notch since we bought our new camera.  I knew that while photography might be in my blood (my dad's a photographer) I learned film photography and not digital and that I wanted some pointers.

I really have no inclinations to go pro with this, I just want to take really nice pictures of my kids, my crafts and life...the stuff that makes me well me.

Still last month (really last week) I took the kids outside for a photo project and I somehow managed to capture this picture of mister Thaddeus:

Are you as amazed as me?  Yeah...it was one of those photos that I wasn't trying to get but got it just the same and with just a little editing with PicMonkey (honestly I'm too poor for PhotoShop) I think that it just captures his pure joy and delight at 1) being the center of attention and 2) swinging. 

Since this is definitely one of my very best photos I've decided that I will enter it in September's I Clicked it Up a Notch photography contest.  My fingers are crossed.

Click It Up A Notch

Photo Taken: Sept 24, 2012
Camera: Cannon EOS Rebel T2i, kit lens
F-stop: f/4.5

  1. Great moment you captured!

  2. Great picture of a happy little boy.

  3. I adore his expression & the pure joy you captured. The top of his face may be a little overexposed. I don't know if you can correct that in the program you use, but other than that, I love the shot you got.

  4. What a fun moment! I love the joy you captured!! Way to freeze the moment!


I love to hear from you! Really I do. It brightens my day when you comment so please don't be shy and tell me what you think...come back too because I try really hard to reply to your comments here. Thanks again for stopping by.
