I could list four hundred gazillion things I love about fall. And I would, except for the fact that my coffee would get cold. And I love my coffee – with that special autumn edition of “pumpkin spice” creamer (oops, I listed one, but that’s it. stopping there.). Okay… one more. Then I’m stopping to enjoy my drink. I love to share the season with my kids. They love it. I love it. I love that they love it. It’s a love-fest, fall. And I’ve got the pictures to prove it.
I think perspective shots are so much fun. My regular clients know that it’s not a complete session unless I’ve been standing on something or have been sprawled out on the ground. But look at those leaves – that sky. Sooooo worth the grass stains.
This is such a typical sequence of shots. Here’s Emma, being all dramatic and serious (she’s gotten to the point where she cares what she looks like in pictures – ugh!), working on that perfect toss…
which is, of course, a prime opportunity for Ben to jump in front of the camera. Obviously, he thinks this is hilarious. And actually, I do too.
This is kind of a new thing with him. He sees the camera out, and he heads right for it. People ask me how I get this look, which is a slightly exaggerated perspective. It’s just a wide lens – not a true “wide angle” or a fish eye (which I want, by they way), but this was pulled out to around 24mm. Just enough to make Ben pop out at you.
It just doesn’t get better than this.
