Drama Princess a hopping

As most of my regular visitors may know, I'm not a big "people" photographer and prefer travel and nature photos. I am always in awe at Jeanette and Karin when their post their people pics, most of which feature their kids. They are always so creative and imaginative compared to my straight forward pics I take of my kids. Some of which I occasionally post on the Firefly Personal (B)log, Supplemental. I have decided to make a concertive effort to try and be more creative when I take pics of my kids.

I took this pic of Drama Princess on the trampoline. I was lying flat on my back and asked her to jump next to me. Obviously she though I was a bit mad, but played along quite nicely. It was hard to get the focus right and to also get her to look at me. But to me all the effort was worth it when I saw how this one came out. I am quite proud of myself. I may just catch up to Jeanette and Karin some time in the future as far as people pics go.

  6. What a lovely photograph! I am in awe of all of your photo's - I have a very basic little Canon, nothing fancy. I really am going to try and be creative this year - I have fluked a couple, but that's beginners luck I think!

  7. I love this shot! I'm going to start photographing more people for my blog soon.
    I know that people think I'm a bit mad, because they have watched me carry ladders across the yard, and stand on the enter sign of the neighborhood all while having a camera around my neck. Now they just shake there heads and keep walking.
