I was really tired today and not into setting up a shot for my 365 project, especially since it was just me and Coen for the night since Daddy is out putting the hip in hop with his band. So while Coen was napping and the sun was beaming in through the window I took advantage. There is nothing better than window light for portraits. This shot was one of the old standby grab your camera, hold it in front of you and click shots. The lighting was bright enough to light my face but not bright enough to light the rest of the room so I ended up with a great black background which I extended a little to the left for more of an interesting composition.
I love how you can see my freckles in this one…at first I thought “ack! my freckles!” but sometimes you gotta embrace those things! It is me after all! If you zoom in a bunch you can actually see the window and the silhouette of my arms holding the camera in my eyeball.
Coen and I had a great afternoon and evening…we went to the library, then to the park, then home for some pizza, then took a relaxing bath together (boy will I miss it when he’s too old for the bath with Mommy), then changed into our pjs…which I never wear and Coen thought it was just sooo hilarious to see his Mom in pjs, then read his new “I SPY” book…which he loves and is insanely good at, then off to bed.
Ahhh…and now I don’t even have any shots to set up so I think I’m going to watch some tube and head to bed myself. Yay!
