soft light

The first one is in the shade but it’s still too dark
The second one is quite nice I just like the way he just went and sat there thinking
And the one of Thomas is lovely but a bit over exposed I think

I am a mom of two boys. Oscar 4 and Thomas 7 months We've been back in Australia for 12 months before that England.


  1. Hi Deb, the thing that is throwing out your exposure a bit is that you still have a bright background. With open shade you should have your subject against a darker background. The area of shade you have the boys in is quite small so that makes this hard. You have a small area of shade with the sun hitting the ground behind making it very bright. I’d love to see you try this activity again if you can find a larger area of shade where the background is not so brightly lit. Once again though you’ve captured some great moments with the boys. Well done for that.

  2. Love the moment of thought you captured of your son.
