I have a new favorite photographer - Gina Kolsrud. I don't know how she does it, but she works magic with the light. I read one interview where she said that if given the choice of only one lens, it would be the Canon 85mm f1.2. I have that lens. It's my least favorite. It weighs a ton and is soooo slow to autofocus. But it's the lens I brought with me today on Ailey's 14-month photo shoot. 'Cause I wanna shoot like Gina Kolsrud. I know . . . it's not the lens.
I decided I would try to work with the sunlight more and not be so afraid of it. I also tried to use a shallower depth of field for a more pleasing blurry look. And I also tried to learn more Photoshopping techniques while post-processing these pics. So much to learn.
Ailey was so cute, cute, cute. Constantly moving . . . exploring. It's great that she's mobile now. Just gotta follow her around and keep shooting.
weed or flower - I've seen this cute weed/flower along the riverbeds as well as on the edges of people's properties. Apparently it is called persicaria capitata or himetsur...
