December 7, 2010 – Playtime

December 7, 2010I almost got what I was after in this picture.  In part it was the relationship of two children at play – one being a 1.5 year old enjoying the moment and the other a 7 year old playing the older, responsible caregiver.

Photographically, though, I really wanted to capture the light edges of the evening sunset.  There is an element of the but not quite to the extent I wanted.  There is always, in my opinion, a romantic, peaceful feeling that comes from the glimmer of the sun rays.

Oh well.  Photographing kids is always a challenge because you have a short wind of time to capture “the moment” and they aren’t old enough to really wait for the camera guy.  Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

  1. Nice concept for the sun rays but did you notice that it looks like the older girl is coming out of the grown rather than laying down.

    HA! that is cute, and you’re right, catching kids at the right moment is extremely tough….Gina always says, “get action shots”…yeah, well, I want the action shots to be including their faces at least, and not the back of their heads!
