I recently found a photography blog that I can't get enough of. She is so talented and frequently shares tips on how to get good pictures of your children. I would definitely recommend her site if you have a DSLR (Emy, Jenn, Melissa, Kirstin), or even if you don't. She is linked in the sidebar under "favorites" as Ashley Ann Photography.
Anyways, after reading some of her tips, I was anxious to try them on my willing subject, Crew. So while he was having a ball exploring the yard, I was snapping away (and occasionally pulling things out of his mouth :).
All of these are straight out of the camera, no editing. I didn't even edit the color!
There's nothing like the summer grass.
Went straight for the dirt.
And the dirt went straight in his mouth.
Next was saying hello to the chickens
This tin can was pretty fun too.
