This week, at I Heart Faces, our challenge is to find our “Absolute Best Face Photo of 2010”. Since I mostly photograph my children, I’m pretty partial to the faces in those photos but I do believe that this one is my very best of the year. Most of the time my 12 year old daughter (Emma) looks just like what she is… a tall, gangly, pretty, goofy, almost- teenager but every now and then I snap a photo of her that truly takes my breath away.
I’m proud of this photo and proud of the knowledge I’ve gained in the past year. I’ve learned to shoot in manual, how to occasionally compensate for the shortcomings of my camera (and there are quite a few), how to edit photos to bring out the natural beauty in them and many more things. In the coming year, I hope to improve my composition and my posing of people. I hope to get more photos that are in focus. =) And I hope to be able to decide if I want to continue photography as the most rewarding of hobbies or to turn my love for it into career that brings me joy!
