Well today is a sick day in the Hawkins house. Amid the coughs, cries and demands for food, we did have a few sweet moments to capture. My wife was looking for a blanket for the babes (aka Sweet Pea) and she grabbed my hoodie as a substitute. I have a feeling that this will not be the last time my sweet pea steals my hoodie.

It doesn't look like the photo was all that tricky, but she was actually swinging in her swing when I took this. I needed to boost the shutter speed and ISO a little bit (because it's just natural lighting). I wanted to play around with a TRA Action simply because I haven't done that for a while, and I made it in B&W first.


If you look at the top left of the photo in the color picture, you can see a little blur so you can tell the little girl was swinging away.


f. 1.4 – 1/200 – ISO 320
