One more! I forgot this shot of little Sophia with a little bit of sun flare.
I just love sunny Summer afternoons!
Sophia was looking up at me ~ she melts my ♥
PS ~ Did you notice that I started watermarking my photos? Only my portraits. I belong to several online photog communities, clubs/workshops & blogs and they all strongly suggest watermarking pics; mainly to protect the person in the photo and of course, give credit for your work.
I guess images can be taken and used for fake profiles, ads, someone else's portfolio, etc. So it just makes it a bit harder to use watermarked images. And then if there is question, I own the RAW/NEF image so those will always stay with me. I'm still getting used to it.
What? A bit much? I'm just a bit protective about the people I love. Fine, I'll tone it down some.....I do tend to over do things sometimes.
I feel like I can exhale easier when I'm looking through my world through the lens as well as my rose colored glasses. Though I'm FAR from a professional, it still makes me happy.
However.....my next camera.....that's another story......aaahhhh, the Nikon D3 dreams I have.....and the things I have to sell on Craigslist before I can take that plunge, haha. That's okay. Johnny won't mind me selling all of his stuff. :o)
