Me and Finn popped out for a quick stroll around our old favourite Summer Leys last week . We needed some fresh air and I wanted to practise my photography skills.
I managed to get a few nice pics, I was particularly pleased with this one of the birds. I’m not sure that the photo does it justice, you can just make out more flocks in the distance. I wish I knew what sort of birds they were, there were lots of birdwatchers out and I was a little jealous of their long distance lenses!
I also wanted to get some nice shots of Finn. I read lots of other blogs and so many have lovely photos of children and babies, all looking angelic and well behaved. I thought ‘I can do that’.
I took a few of Finn on this bench and eventually got a couple I was happy with. What this photo doesn’t show is how long it took to get him to stay still. At this angle, it also doesn’t show the biscuit I had to use to stop him escaping!
I’m hoping to get better, so would be grateful for any tips! Just how do you get decent photos when you have the world’s most fidgety child?
