I ♥ Faces - Week 12 - "Focusing on Angles"

Exposure:0.067 sec (1/15)
Focal Length:6 mm
ISO: 800

Ok ~ so this week it's all about angles! This shot may not be one of my technical bests but there is a reason for that! I put the kids in charge!! My camera has a rotating live-view screen, my kids LOVE it!! So when I'm taking a picture THEY like to see themselves, which makes life a tad difficult for me! This was taken with me on the floor, on my back, with them screaming at me to twist the screen whichever way so they could see themselves in it and they told me when to press the shutter :) I have a tonne of pictures from this shoot ~ it was fun and the pictures show it, but this one is by far my favourite!

Please excuse the quality: shot in winter, inside, and 3.30pm, on my camera which hates high ISO. I was in front of the window, but in winter this is only limitedly useful in the UK! Look at my settings, you can't let much more light in than that, but unfortunately the 800 ISO makes everything super-grainy, which means when you run it through noise reduction you loose a lot of detail :( If you are interested, HERE is the SOOC (so you can see my exposure & the grit). I know for some pictures a bit of noise is fine (I've learnt that much), but this was not one of them!

A little editing (which I did a while back now) and I love it despite it's faults ~ it shows the characters of my children extremely well :D!!

I hope my photo made you smile :D Too see some more random/gorgeous/wacky/funny angles over at I ♥ Faces just click the link!

You can tell that your kids were having a great time with the photo shoot! Sometimes the technically imperfect photo shoots are the best ones. Regardless of the lighting situation you were dealing with, you captured the moment!

great angle to shoot kids with! I can feel their excitement.

This is such a fun shot! I can just hear them giggling! I personally prefer photos that are not technically perfect! It's more like real life;)
Have a great week!

So very sweet! I like the B&W edit to it- it leads me to focus on their adorable faces!
