Tummy Time

This little man is rapidly becoming more mobile! Two weeks ago, I didn’t think I would be saying this, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s crawling by the time he’s six months old. I just can’t believe how much he’s changed in the past seven days.

This morning, I had the bedspread in the wash, and Tice was rolling around on the fresh white sheets in his birthday suit, and I had to grab the camera. He was being such a little ham. I’m so used to photographing him on his back or in his Bumbo–it was fun to capture him showing off his new moves.

Even though he’s usually happy and smiling, there are plenty of these moments, too:

I love these. This is the first time I’ve captured “cute” crying pictures of him. For some reason, I’m usually holding him instead of the camera in these type of moments. Hopefully he didn’t mind my slow response this time. And even if he did, it was worth it!

Thankfully, a few minutes later, he looked like this again:

Technical details…

Lighting: All natural light in his room; windows behind him, to his right, and in front of him

ISO: 1000    Lens: 85 mm    f/1.8, 2, 2.5   1/100 and 1/125 sec

Notes: Some of the outtakes were a little blurred because of the slow(ish) shutter speed, but I hate to go any higher than ISO 1000 (more grain)–especially knowing that I would probably want to print some of these.

    I absolutely love the second picture of Tice, it’s probably my favorite baby picture of all time. One day I want to watch you do some processing. Your B&W shots are flawless and your colors always pop without being overwhelming. I am going to start shooting RAW now. I have the full version of LR3 but I had never opened it before today. I am really excited to start processing in LR instead of CS5. I also moved my blog from blogspot to wordpress and purchased my domain name. Thanks for the encouragement. Ross – chromakeylife.com
