The Light in Regan's Eyes...


I'd been searching for a piece of black and white Damask fabric thinking it would look cool as a photo backdrop. Nothing wide enough for my taste was available but I did find a narrower cut at Joannes while at the same time falling in love with a piece of brown and blue upholstery fabric that I ended up bringing home as well. Wanting to try it out I roped Regan and one of her friends McKenzi as test subjects while I played around with the lighting in my living room and zoomed in close to their adorable faces. They were patient with me as I snapped away trying to get the f-stop right. Shooting in manual mode forces me to notice things I was bypassing before in auto. Thank Heavens for digital cameras.
