Shooting the Upshernish Kid

_MG_9066 - 2010-04-25 at 15-27-07 This was a fun one. Really cute kid. Has the cutest smile, unless you ask him to, then he makes a ridiculous face (but quite cute). I really had focusing issues the whole time, I'll get to that another time.

The sun was a challenge but we dealt with it. I really have to work on finding good locations with good open shade and nice backgrounds. Ooo, I think I just found an excuse to go to the beach/mountains/anywhere. I love photography. And Hashem. Not in that order of course.

This was one of the few running shots I got in semi-focus. Added some zoom filters in photoshop for fun. I probably should have cloned the balloons out (technically, you can't really clone something out, you have to clone something in over whatever you want to remove). Maybe next time.

I'm working on upgrading my system, and am having way too much fun buying used lenses. Someone stop me! But seriously, it seems to be an awesome investment. Lens have been going up in price recently and used ones don't really lose much value (unless you use them as beer openers..). At least that's how I justify it.

Peace. Got to go. The cows wait for no one and my chicken wrap is calling.
