Park Portraits at 35mm

21 March 2011

Portrait - Callum and Liam

I’m absolutely loving my Nikon DSLR and the 35mm f1.4 lens.

It makes it very easy to be addicted to taking portraits.

Just point and shoot.

I’ve discovered that it’s fabulous for taking portrait photos of the kids.

The other evening, when the sun was just about to set, I dragged my kids out to the park. The little meadow glowed with a beautiful blue-green light.

They played on the slide – whooping, tumbling and giggling – for what seemed like hours. While I snapped away until I ran out of light.

Then I put away the camera and wrestled all 3 boys on the grass till we were eaten by mosquitoes.

Karen happy.
