So my goal for today was to try something different with lighting. Unfortunately I didn't quite get that accomplished. I did take a picture of a barn with the sun behind it, but it just wasn't dramatic enough for me. Oh well not a big deal, right?
Instead, I tried using the monochrome setting on my camera. If I want black & white I always just convert on the computer, but I wanted to try something different today. My son decided to volunteer as a subject for my pictures. He loves to get up really close to the camera. He gets way too close actually. I told him to back up for this picture and as you can see, it is still too close. There is just something compelling about his eyes in this picture so I am sharing it even though he's missing the top part of his head.
And here's one more picture from the day.
Again, its not too late to join if anyone wants to participate in the challenge :)
These pictures were again taken with the Canon 70D and 50mm 1.8 lens. I haven't taken this lens off since I bought it. Its the best lens I have, love love love it!
