It’s time for the first ever Snap Happy Friday here on the blog. Cue confetti throwing and ponytail twirling. I’ve made an official page for the link party and it includes rules, graphic codes and everything. I guess its pretty official now.
As I mentioned earlier this week. This week’s theme is “Back to school”. I nearly had an epic fail by forgetting to take a picture. Very last minute. Want to know what reminded me to take a picture? I got an email reminding me of my daughter’s preschool orientation. How did that happy? I have a preschooler? Does this mean I’m a grown up now? Guess so.
I still vividly remember being so afraid to hold her in the NICU and her tiny hand holding my finger in her isolette. It’s amazing how quickly kids grow.
The first image was originally going to be a macro of the crayons, but the little guy wanted to be in the shot. Couldn’t help myself. I’m a sucker for knuckle dimples. Edited in LR4, watermarked and compressed/optimized for the web in CS6. Taken on our chalkboard coffee table on a rainy day with very little natural light. It’s amazing what these full frame cameras are capable of these days in low light situations.
Canon 6d / 50mm 1.4 / ISO 1600 * f/2.8 * 1/200 sec
The link party will shut down Sept 5th @ 11:59 PST. Be sure to link up before then and I’ll pick a favorite to feature next week. Can’t wait to see what you’ve taken pictures of this week! Also, try to visit two other links in the party.
**Remember that following the photography theme is NOT mandatory to enter. It’s only mandatory for the featured pic of the week. I just ask that the links be photography related. Non photography links will be deleted.**
Next week’s theme is going to be “Fly”.
