cute kid + great window light = Good Photo

Christiana is a really cute baby, celebrating her first year too!

Technical: One of the key lessons I have been learning this year is that light really matters. Yes, you can purchase really neat gear to take photos in the dark but good quality light can't be beat. Here the sunlight from outside was being let in through a window, basically creating a 3 foot by 6 foot soft box behind and sometimes to the left of camera. I just metered to that light and had a blast with Christiana. I have photographed her in this same place a couple times but without the great light and have never gotten as good of images as I did here.
