So here are my first few attempts taken at around 11 o'clock.
Phil was trying to teach me how to get a flare shot here...while holding the dog leash and a jacket. :) Pretty good first attempt but not great. I still thought it was pretty cute.
Second attempt at flare...better! Her shirt was a little washed out though so we tweaked it a bit in photoshop.
These next ones were when she woke up from her nap...oh how I LOVE late afternoon light! I thought this one was pretty of her.
Another attempt at flare..got the flare but washed her out. Phil said I needed to turn up the exposure compensation.
This isn't really a great picture but look at the light on her face I just love how it looks so golden at about 5 in the afternoon.
She was very tired of me asking her to sit still and was begging to play hopscotch. I gave in but I got one of my favorite pics of her that day!
I definitely need to keep practicing but it was a lot of fun trying new things...it didn't hurt the weather was perfect! I hope you all had a good weekend too!
