Crazy Little Jasper

A bit of a change of pace today…a portrait! I brought my camera along with me to our Christmas morning brunch with the in-laws to snap some photos of Brei’s nephews opening their gifts. It was so much fun to watch the little guys tear into their presents, and I had a blast shooting them.

This was shot after the madness of the gift opening was done. I shot most of the morning with my 50mm prime, but decided to throw on my 10-20mm zoom to try for some interesting close-up, distorted portraits of the kids. It was a bit of a challenge to get the shots because I had to be about 6 inches away from their faces to get the distortion I wanted, but it was fun. This is probably my favourite shot of the morning.

Genuine happiness captured. Love how you used the UWA for this, I like doing the same.

Nothing like capturing a moment when a child is smiling or laughing. Well done, Heath!

This is wonderful! I really love how the eye is lead down to find the cookie.
