A 90 second project has been on the back burner for a while. Actually, I want to set up a tripod and be in the photos with both my boys. But when I uploaded the photos from this morning for next week’s This Week in Photos post, I realized I had the perfect compilation. We spent part of the morning at the new Crestwood playground. They included this amazing double baby swing, where you can swing with your kiddo instead of standing there for ridiculously long periods of time pushing them!
All these photos are SOOC (straight out of camera) which can be a little overwhelming to share!!! I was shooting Mav with my 35mm lens while sitting where Kane was sitting in the previous image. My settings were ISO 250, f/7.1, 1/500, in the hopes that I could freeze our movement and still hit focus, while clinging to the swing with one hand and pumping with my legs. And in trying to keep my promise to myself to not shoot personal work in auto white balance, my white balance was set to 5050 Kelvin. Best guess!
This is what 90 seconds (okay, fine…98 seconds) looks like in Maverick’s life. He was having a bit of a Mavrage, until I got on the swing with him and then…well, see for yourself.
I love his hair. I love his facial expressions. I love this kid! Even though he’s just about two and clearly showing it almost every minute of the day! I have a plan for how I want to print some of these and I don’t think I’m going to do any editing on them. They aren’t perfect…but they are. You know?
