Week Three Homework: Composition

This was a sad photo week for me. It was terrible, raining weather all week. It was very gloomy. I love outside shots and had to do most photos indoors--with little to no help from natural light since the sun was far, far away behind the raining clouds. The sad thing is it is Fall here and I love outside Fall shots. Enough complaining, here is what I have.

Photo #1
Shutter Speed: 1/80
ISO 400

This was taken after dark, so it was all indoor lighting. I realized later in the week after watching and rewatching videos I should have taken my ISO up to get better lighting in this situation. It turned out okay. I love the shot because it epitomizes my third child's quest in life to be like her siblings. Her older sister is taking dance, so notice that she has four different tutus on. Her older brother is taking piano, so here she sits in her sister's tutus playing from her brother's piano books.

Photo #2
Shutter Speed 1/125
ISO 400

My children are such hams.

Photo #3
Shutter Speed: 1/125
ISO 400

Here I framed my daughter as she climbed the stairs to the slide.

Runners Up

This one didn't make it because I cut off her finger tips

This was taken in a church, which has terrible lighting, so I went with black and white here.

you may find that when you're shooting inside your ISO is always up around 1600. That's the highest mine goes, and typically when I'm inside it's up around there.

Hey Valerie, I love you images this week. Sorry about the weather, same here this week, but luckily I got the shots done before it hit.
The image you captured in the first with the tutus and piano is a real keepsake isn't. What a lovely and memorable capture. Well done :)
