Sweet Little Photo Swap #15

Happy Sunday! We have had the most GORGEOUS weather here lately.  I am so enjoying the fall colors and the warm breezy days.  I hope this lasts for a LONG time.  ;)  It has been so nice that I'm even scared to talk about it, if you know what I mean!  Shhh...!!

I have been experimenting a lot with portrait photography this week.  And I've been trying to use a lot of natural light to light the face of my subject (Ally of course!).  I got some really cool shots that I am so excited about. Some of the lighting turned out just right in a few of them (at least I think so!).  It's always fun when you have a picture you look at and think, "umm, I don't think I need to edit that one"!!  Doesn't happen very often, but when it does, I get so excited!

I also played around with the white balance and the aperture so I am excited to be learning a little more about how to work those features on my camera.  I can't believe I have had my new camera for a whole year now.  I have had SO much fun with it, but I feel like I still have SO much to learn. 

I started working on my photography course this week too.  I have learned a lot already.  It's great fun!

Like the blurred background on this one

Totally using natural light

A little bright but I still like it

Fun swing shot

I'm a hat junkie!

I like her expression in this one!


I really like this one

One of those that I was like, yay, finally got a perfect one!


What photography fun have you been having this week?

If you have never joined a swap before here are the rules...and if you HAVE joined before, I changed the rules just a bit so they would be easier to follow.

1)  Not required, but would LOVE it if you would write a SPECIFIC photo swap post.  I REALLY would appreciate if you didn't just link up a random post from your blog. Please make sure it has something to do with photo swapping!  Thanks!
2)  Share your favorite photos from the week and share why you liked them.
3)  Link back to Sweet Little Photo Swap with a link or a button. ( PLEASE do this one!)
4)  It would be AWESOME if you would follow Sweet Little Gals
5)  Follow at least TWO other people on the photo swap list
6)  ENJOY!! ;)

Please grab a sweet little button!!

Thanks Sara for the invite last week. Your little girl is lovely and she seems to be very confident in front of the camera never mind very stylish. I love the ones with that little purple hat on.

Lovely images. The one with the hat is so gorgeous.

I love the picture you took of her on the swing. What a cutie!

I hope it's okay that I shared photos that I didn't take myself. My teenage daughter took them (at my request). They turned out so well and captured a moment that I wanted to share.

Stasha suggested I link up on your blog. So here I am. I can't take credit for the photos. It is my hubby who is the photographer buff in our family. It is his new hobby and he loves it. I love how happy it makes him.

Love the first shot Ally. She is adorable.
