The thing is, I've been trying to get a portriat-type photo of Tottie for our wall to match Nutty's updated preschool picture. What I've learned, is that taking portraits of a 2 year old is near impossible! In all my shots the lighting is off or she's got a funny face, or her hand is in the way. I've been trying for over a week to get a good shot!
I love this shot of Tottie (Taken with my Canon SX20, program mode, f 4, 1/80, ISO 125) but it's too far away and I don't like where her hand is.
I cropped it but I still don't like her hand. I also don't like the break in the fence above her head. I coloned both of those out and bumped up the saturation just a smidge using Gimp photo editing software. Now I finally have a portrait of Tottie I deem worthy of my wall!
Hey, check back a little later in the day. It's my 1 Year Boggerversary today (!) and I'm putting up a post related to that!
