Evening Shoot

Hubby was working late yesterday, so I needed to get the kids out of the house for my sanity Wink So we went out on the bike trail for a walk in the wagon, and I, of course, brought my camera with me. I'd love any CC you could give. I really want to improve, and I feel like I'm in a rut.

I'm short on time and will have to come back for REAL CC, but for now, I just had to say that I love that last one. I imagine him saying 'TA-DA!'!

Really brought a smile - thanks for that!

I think you did just fine! I think the background isn't any spectacular, but I think you are doing just fine!

The only cc I have is on number 2. I just don't like the road running right above his head.

That actually brings me to a question, Sadie. I'm glad you said something about the path right above his head. Where should things like a path/road/horizon be placed?

I'll have to come back for proper CC (also short on time) but just wanted to say you always do such a great job if getting eye contact with your boys. I struggle so much to get my kids to look at the camera let along look like they are happy to be having their pic taken

Love these, Steph!

I am super short on time right now because I'm about to crash from a full day at the zoo, but I love these, especially the two of Jackson! I feel like Carson looks a bit warm, but like I always say, not calibrated! Biggrin ETA: On second thought, maybe he doesn't look warm. I think it's the differences in their hair color that threw me at first glance!

And I know I say this a lot, too, but in these shots, I'm definitely convinced Jackson and Owen are clones! Wink

Great job getting eye contact, too!

Know what's so funny about that, Jen? He was almost an Owen Wink

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I really appreciate it!

You really have a knack at getting your kids to look at the camera. No CC to add, you did a great job.

LOVE #4! It must be all the grass, but these look a little yellow/green. How do you get them to look at you long enough to get such great shots? If I were you I'd totally frame #4, it's too cute!
