This is a friend of ours granddaughter. I actually went to theri place to take pictures of their cats, and Shae was out playing with the cats, she saw the camera and began to do the smiley pose thing that kids do, but I managed to get a shot where she was unaware of the camera.

Taken with Canon 7D EOS
f8, 1/250th ISO 250 73mm lens (on my zoom)

    LOVE the natural lighting in this!
    Well done on getting an unposed shot Jude! :-)

  • I had a lot of posed shots and this one just kind of happened, there is a great shot of her smiling in the grass chasing the cat, it was fun and my first experience at photographing kids which is something I want to do as they make such great candid subjects, but I can see there will be challenges and they certainly wont work to your schedule…….There are some really inspiring photographers on here and the net in general who specialise in kids……

    Are you going to upload the smiley chase the cat?? Sounds great!! :-)

  • I might, she is crouched in the paddock with the cat and smiling at the camera….it is one to go in the “portfolio”

    I see I have followed Ell to your site, and I agree with her comments – it’s the lighting and the child’s unposed expression. Children are so good at being themselves in front of the camera and you have caught her perfectly. Love the B+W, it’s exactly right for this one.

  • Thanks Rhoufi, Black and White is my favorite
