Day 114 – 02/27/11 – Birthday Wishes

Today we had a party for the big one’s birthday.  A good time was had by all, though there was little time for project oriented photography.  So here, as the image of the day, is the big one about to blow out her birthday candles.

It’s interesting.  Despite how much practice I’ve been getting with lighting setups and other planned and pre-visualized shots, in a situation like a birthday party I find myself reverting to basically taking snapshots.

    I know what you mean by reverting to snapshots – I think it’s the pressure of not wanting to lose the moment. Nice shot btw.

      Thanks Sasi! I agree, making sure to catch the moment seems to be what pushes all thoughts of photographic technique out of mind during things like this. Something to work on I suppose.

  3. Oooh! I love birthdays! Happy birthday to her!!! This is great, and what a beautiful cake!

  5. Aww, hope she had a great birthday and, what an awesome cake (not even mentioning how well her shirt matches…)!
