Manuma on

Today I had some time to spend and went outdoors with two of my three children to do my Craftsy homework. We had a lot of fun with our cameras in hands. My daughter didn't want to be shot in the face, so both pictures are from behind - in one I used the rule, but in the other I deliberately ignored it, because of the line she follows. On the picture with the slippers I am not entirely happy with the lighting (shadows) and the background but we had to use what we had close at hand. And now the confession - the picture with the bear was taken by my nine years old son, but I liked it so much I had to post it.

What a nice way to spend time with your kids. I like the too fast picture anyway. :>)

For the picture Too fast I wanted to take the picture with my son in the left third of the picture, but he was too fast every time I took the picture. I know it would be correct if he had the space to run to. We will try again.

Composition-wise this is a great shot. Very powerful emotionally, although I don't like the emotions. Shooting her from above makes her seem powerless, and the long path ahead with no other people makes her seem isolated. It's a very lonely picture. Just shows how images can make you feel totally different than what the picture is actually of!
