I haven’t had my camera out much lately. It seems there has been little to photograph. It is the dead of winter, it is just getting light when I leave for work and dark when I get home. There is nothing growing outside. No gardens to photograph. No outdoor sports events to take pictures of the kids at. I did get a small bit of inspiration after seeing Daphne soaking up the sun by the front window this past weekend. I took a few pictures of our lovely boxer and somehow managed to sweet-talk Sebastian and Sophia into letting me photograph them also. So here are a few pictures from our spontaneous mini photo shoot.
Some behind the scenes details…
- I balanced a dog bone toy on my head to get Daphne to look at me. A little gross since it had dried dog slobber on it, but it worked. I took a shower afterwards. 🙂
- I thought about Photoshopping the big gap in Sebastian’s smile along with the pointy tooth coming in. Then I realized that it may look a little funny, but that’s what being twelve and losing your teeth is all about.
- I should have made Sebastian take off his Twins knit hat, but didn’t want to push my luck. He doesn’t usually agree to let me take pictures of him. I decided I should take what I can get.
I also snapped a few pictures with my iPhone yesterday morning after arriving to work. The sun was coming out and the dense fog was beginning to lift. I wished that I had taken my Canon with me for the day, but the iPhone did just fine.
Same picture after a little Photoshop magic.
I’m hoping for even brighter days ahead.
