I also keep a list of shots that I want to capture at some point. It’s a running list that keeps me motivated throughout the year. On days where I’m just documenting our daily life I’m often seen but not heard. I might try and manipulate the light and clear out clutter if possible. When I’m shooting something more stylized like this image, I often ask my children questions to keep them interested. I was asking my son what the leaf felt like here. Whether it was soft or rough, etc.

I think I was at 400 ISO, F2.0, 1/500, 5880 WB and mama blowing bubbles behind me. I processed it in LR with the Calypso Pretty Preset and then tweaked it slightly and finished with a slight tilt shift blur in PS! ✨

I kept my focus sharp on those toes. Processing was really minimal – slightly upping my contrast and clarity, and pulling out some shadows. Thanks again for the feature
