Going off automatic: Studio

Melissa at A Familiar Path asked us to find our "studio" in our own house this week. How many times have you taken what you think is the perfect photo of your kids, only to look it and realize it was covered in shadow, or your couch clashed with the sweater your daughter is wearing? Or maybe it just works out that it looks like the living room lamp is coming out your son's head. I've just described thousands of my photos! No longer....hooray! With great advice from Prof. Melissa, I placed my kids right inside the porch door in the morning, I stepped out and and Viola! Perfect lighting with no flash.

my boy:

my girl:

Good lighting can make all the difference in a picture.
