PotW (Photo of the Week) – July 13 thru July 19, 2008
After much pestering (Me: “So do I get a picture of you now?” Dad: “Sure.” Me: “You need to get dressed.” Dad: “WHAT?!”) and prodding (Me: “Seriously, Mom, if I don’t get a picture of you and dad together before I leave, I’m going to be very upset.” Mom: ::eyebrow twitch::), my parents finally acquiesced to a minature photo-shoot this afternoon.
Dad was actually a great asset, tickling mom and making everyone giggle, which led to this silly, more spontaneous picture. I love Dad’s rosy cheeks and wide smile, and Mom’s look that kind-of says, “Do you believe this guy?”
Did a lot of post-editing. I used a wide f-stop and fast shutter, but it was a tad underexposed. By a tad, I mean a lot. I didn’t realize until after I started downloading the images that my camera wasn’t set in .RAW (grrr…), but I think I did an OK job of brightening the shadows. Certainly not the greatest technically, but my favorite picture of my parents ever, I think.
This is the first of the ongoing “Photo of the Week” challenge I present to myself–that way, I’ll at least have to take one good photo each week. And consistently update the blog. Ah, see, dual purpose. I can be smart. Occasionally.
