See this beautiful portrait below? It took about 50 tries to get this one.
Photographing our little toddler can be challenging.. he is constantly on the go and doesn't really care that I would like for him to play in some pretty light by our living room window. I have learned, however, that I get the best photos when I let him do his thing and be himself.. and sometimes bribe him with chocolate!
When I am processing and editing photos, the first thing I do is something called "culling". During this process, I go through each photo on my computer and flag it as a "yes" to keep or a "no" to get rid of. Seems kind of harsh but considering I have taken thousands of photos this year alone, it is necessary. Culling helps me to build a story with photos as well and sometimes that includes "blooper" photos. I cannot help but save these little gems!
To me, bloopers are photos that either have something really goofy going on (this happens A LOT with our little guy) or they are technically imperfect (out of focus or bad composition-thank you quick toddler!), or both!
So, for your entertainment and to give a little "behind the scenes" look at some of my photos from my 365 project, here are some of my favorite bloopers of our son from the past 6 months. ENJOY!
A few too many leaves.. :)
