Just a Swinging……

Got a chance to spend a little time in the park with the grand kids today.  Wasn’t there long but I did manage to get a few shots of the youngest one on the swing. She was tired but she really enjoyed the ride. While she was swinging, I decided to see what I could capture in a few of the moment shots. I made sure my exposure was right and a f-stop of 7.1 to help with the depth of field as she was swinging. Then I just held the camera down low and aimed it at her. Worked pretty good. I was hoping I was getting the flag in the right place and for the most part I was happy. I used the on camera flash just because it was mid-afternoon and the angle of the sun was slightly behind her. By setting the correct manual exposure and having the on camera flash set for a balance fill, I was able to get these shots.  Then it was just a little post processing in LR and I was pleased with the results. So don’t forget to use the unusual angles and the elements you have on hand in your photos.
