I ♥ Faces - No Flash

This category is really hard for me to make a choice on what picture to use. Pretty much every picture I take (with the exception of bathtub pics where I use an external flash) is natural light. I decided on a bluebonnet picture because I love this pic so very much. Annie was so happy in that field of flowers. I chose the picture of Annie and Justin for the adult category because I love the picture and because it has taken me a lot of practice and playing around with the settings on my camera to get indoor pictures with no flash that I actually like. I thought this one turned out great. We are at the rodeo and I love the blurred cowboys and horses in the background and all of the shimmering lights. Be sure and check out the other awesome entries for this week's competition at I ♥ Faces.

oh I cannot get over how much I adore both of these pictures! I always look forward to your entries -- your girls are just adorable! I've been to Vietnam on business a few times - and always thought I'd love to adopt from there :-)

Great shots - they are both amazing!

Your kids entry is definitely one of my favorites this week. Her expression is so full of awe. Love it. I also really like the adult entry. I love how the blurred out movement helps you to feel all that's going on without detracting from your husband and sweet daughter. Nicely done!

The one of Annie in that field - be still my heart! The joy on her face is beyond measure.

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. The softness and the composition and the lighting of that first shot is STUNNING. But the clarity and brightness and setting of your adult shot just knocks my socks off! I hope to see one or both of these in the top ten this weekend! Great job.

That lavender field is amazing. LOVE the soft, pretty light. LOVE your adorable baby. Oh my goodness. She is too perfect : ).

The Devines~Blessed Parents said...

Your photography is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! Can I please get private lessons? LOL! I am teaching myself with my camera and it is WAY too advanced for me. I need to read and learn a LOT! You talk about never using a flash except for tub pics. I totally understand why (the shadows, etc) how do you keep your flash from popping up (even on the non-flash tab) what am I doing wrong. I have a Canon EOS Rebel XSI...I have tried to read and learn but there are some things...I just don't understand yet! GREAT PICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
