15 minutes of sun but…

A engagement post written by on 05/08/2010

My friend Aliesha (our youth pastors wife) and I were chatting online this afternoon… and got to talking about doing pictures at the local carnival we have going on. Neither one of us had showered (mind you it was 2pm lol)… but I really wanted to get out so I told her I was going to go out there tonight and if she wanted I would snap a few pics of her and her hubby Tad for fun.

We went ahead and went with the family and let the boys enjoy a ride or two… then went across the street to walmart to grab some items we needed… then around 7:30pm I got a call from Aliesha :) they were at the Carnival hehe… so I had Travis drop me off and in about 15-20 minutes I snagged some fun pictures of them before we lost the light.

It was a bit darker than Im use to shooting portraits in…
I also had my older camera & a zoom lens.. I never use zoom lenses for my portraits, only primes.. so that also was difficult adjusting to… but all in all, I think she will enjoy them :)

    If this had a ‘Like’ button, I’d click it. :) At the carnival – what a neat idea!

    These are great! I like your idea of using the carnival – a very fun setting!

  5. I like them! I think you should use a zoom more often, in addition to your primes :) only because it varies the types of photos that you normally take.
