Two years progress. In cake.

So… I’ve been at this camera thing for just over two years now. When Mr. B turned one, I did his cake smash shoot in our kitchen. I wanted the pictures, but I didn’t want to pay for them. So I did the best I could with what I knew.

Now, exactly two years later, I have done Miss Em’s cake smash. Its a good opportunity to see where some growth has happened, and places I still need to do some more work. So here it is, a side by side:

Keep in mind for B’s, I had just discovered actions (a set of editing steps at the press of a button). I had no idea how to use them, and that’s why he looks ridiculously smooothed or blurry in some of them. Oops!

This next one is the only one that I prefer the earlier version. Love this kids eyes.

In the end, I’m happy that I can see growth. I have so far to go, but I’m starting to get a decent number of pictures I’m quite happy with. I think I need to work on composition, and different light (boy am I struggling outside in full sun). But YAY! Steps have been made!
