Thanks all for your sweet comments on last week’s post, it’s wonderful to have such encouragement. With a big smile on my face we headed out Sunday with the mission of apple picking at the orchard just down the way. I’ve lived in the area my whole life and I’ve never been! While apples were never the top fruit in our house, hubby and Averleigh are big fans.
Looking through the shots I could have shared many with wide smiles in what was a perfect sunny, warm fall day. I kept returning to this one though, it proves a long held belief. You don’t need to see a person’s mouth to know they are smiling. It’s all there in the eyes. Who would doubt that apple hides a wide grin?
Now if only I could have had a little more light on those beautiful eyes I would be really happy. I found the speckled light the apple trees made a bit of a challenge. It’s hard to complain about shade when you are taking pictures amongst trees, but I wish some in the bunch I took like the one below had more sun in the right spots!
It’s a fun learning process, this photography. Soon I think it will be time to have some instruction. While I can read all sorts of things on the subject, I think there is much that could be learned in person.
Thanks to Sally Russick of the Studio Sublime for bringing this little lesson to us each week!
