Meghann and Sarah came back from parts unknown this afternoon and the first thing the girls did was head to the backyard to play a game of soccer. It's a little difficult with only 4 but the bigger 2 played goalie and Macy and Sarah slugged it out on the field. (Perhaps that will be where Delaney will find her place.) I'm not quite certain why they chose to play up and down the hill with the creek directly behind Meghann rather than turning the field 90 degrees and having a level playing field but who am I to interject.
Yes, Macy was playing in a frilly skirt and Delaney had on a tank top under her coat. That's just the way they are.
The settings aren't really important since I was just shooting backyard JPGs but I did bump up the ISO and tried to increase the DOF while shooting in aperture priority. The shutter speed was a little slow so I have a bit of a blur esp on the ball. I chose to B&W the first pic of Delaney because it just felt right. I did some noise reduction and minor adjustments on the rest.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
