Throwback Thursday: Lucy with Greens

Annnd….we’re back!

With another edition of Throwback Thursday, aka, when I, ThePolkaDotPatriot, find an old photo shoot that isn’t quite up to the quality I’d like.

Hopefully, it’ll encourage all of you–you don’t instantly become a good photographer, it takes work and a whole lot of mistakes–also, I think it’s kinda fun. πŸ˜€

Her face is slightly out of focus. In pretty much all of these.

The lighting was a little weird and I tried to fix it, but I think I just made it worse… πŸ˜‰

This one’s better! Her face is even in focus! πŸ˜€

The framing of the fern fronds could’ve been really cool if I’d changed the angle a bit to make it less awkward. *Sighs*

At this point I’d just gotten my reflector and was still trying to figure out how to use it. πŸ™‚

My takeaways:
* I need to make sure I stay perfectly still while taking pictures

*You can have pretty amazing lighting but if you don’t know how to use a reflector…

*Framing. Position of subject and angle of shot. Pay. Attention.

    Even though these pictures aren’t your best, they’re still really good! I take pictures with my phone, but I’ve still learned many tricks to make my photos the best quality possible. πŸ™‚

  4. Fabulous photos! I love the way Lucy looks in her outfit and how her eyes pop in the setting. a friend who is a photographer suggested holding my breath when taking photos. It is supposed to help you keep still.
