Leah said: This was shot at ISO 3200, f2.8, 1/200. There are three small windows in my son’s room and I made sure only the blinds to the one just above his head were open, allowing me to direct the light. I edited it using all the tips I learned from a recent ClickinMoms breakout (The Ultimate Guide to Photo Editing by the amazing @meg_nlo ).I used to be so scared to over 1600 but then I started to embrace the grain and have been so happy with where it’s taken my photography. Turns out there is lots of beautiful light in my house! And Meg’s breakout was so great!

Well, let me tell you I took a good 2 hours for this shoot. 😂 I had to set a timer to focus on my daughter while I set it, and then took multiple frames after the first initial shutter release. Post process is half of the reason I personally love photography. I love editing! I make sure I keep the colors warm so I bump all the colors towards warmer tones (yellows to orange, reds to orange, greens to yellow). I also bring up the shadows in the tone curve for a little bit of a matte effect.

I love color, and the pink sky this evening was EVERYTHING. I brought saturation up minimally, added contrast moderately, and a tiny bit of clarity, and boom!

Thank you so much for the feature @camera_mama!! It means so much to me to be featured with so many talented photographers. Top Tips: (1) PLAN, PLAN, PLAN (2) Do each person at a time vs. ordered by box, (3) Align camera as close to perpendicular as possible to avoid perspective distortion and last but not least, just go with it! With two small kids, it was a little chaotic mess and not everyone was happy but it all worked out in the end.

The lens was Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II and I was lying on the ground under the swing (it’s a pretty high swing). I sat on this image for a while not knowing how the process it. I shot it with a color image in mind but just couldn’t make it work the way I wanted. After a while I realized that the tree (the “magic tree” as the kids call it) would work great in black and white if I could separate it from the background so I processed it with the tree and my daughter having much more contrast than the surrounding trees above.
