I have hard drives full of photos I haven’t gone through in a very long time, and I’m picking my favorite images once a week and going deeper into them – both storywise and technically. I have the horrid habit of taking a photo, falling in love with it, and then forgetting about it two days later. It’s professional photographer job hazard ;).
This photo of Aidyn and Andy the Goat is one of my all time favorites! I went with the idea of just getting some fun shots of the goats at Sassy Nanny, but Aidyn decided he would show me his friend. I shot it with my Canon 24-70 2.8 at ISO 400, f2.8 @ 1/2500, and then in post converted it to b&w in Lightroom. I also positioned myself at eye level with Aidyn – with kids and animals that is essential to my photos.
I tend to shoot in extremes with apertures – either f/2.8 or f/18. Its my way of really getting creative and changing the mood of the photo in camera. My post processing in Lightroom then adds to it with either a contrasty b&w, or deeper hues (if I’m keeping it in color).
Comment below and let me know what else you would like to know! I love teaching :):)
