My sons helping the lifeguards at the beach

Lifeguards

Considering the image: We spent the afternoon at the beach at Isle of Palms, SC for Mother’s Day.  I took the opportunity to do some beach photography using Canon’s iTTL system.  I took quite a few of the usual types of shots, but when the lifeguards offered to let the boys get some photographs with their buoys, I knew that would make the image for the day.

Making the photograph: For the beach shooting I wanted to keep things simple and just focus on getting the shots.  In order to do that I swapped over to my old EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II just in case the camera took a drink or fell in a sand pit.  I added the 430EX to the top and put it in iTTL and high speed sync.  I set the camera on Aperture priority and shot at the widest possible aperture.  I dialed in -1EV to saturate the colors in the scene a bit and then added the fill flash at -1 to -1/3 EV.  Using the iTTL, the shots were easy and I could simply dial up/down on either the flash or the exposure to balance the scene.  I would have liked to have had a diffuser dome on the flash to soften it just a bit, but most of the shots were far enough that the dome wouldn’t have made much difference.

Our Daisy cat caught in the yard.

Daisy

Considering the image:  I didn’t have a whole lot of time left in the day after completing a Half Ironman this morning, taking a long nap, taking the boys to the park, and cleaning the yard a bit.  While I was in the yard I noticed our two cats padding around and decided they would be the subject(s) for today.  So here is Daisy.  Her brother Jack would not cooperate with the camera.  At all.

Making the photograph:  This was another straight forward photograph.  The light was soft and flat.  I bumped the ISO to give me a decent shutter speed with the EF 50mm f/1.8 Mk 1 set at f/1.8.  I dialed in -2/3EV to saturate the colors a bit.  Post processing was simple curves and sharpening.  Easy day.  Nice family pet photograph.
