...or tool I should say. I've been photographing my kids for years now modelling my knitting, but last time I took Penny to shoot some photos of my new girls pattern (more about that another day) I was soooo frustrated. It's hard to tell a 5 year old to move slowly so that the photos aren't blurry, but the straw that broke the camels back was when it's batteries died on me (they'd been recharged especially for the shoot) and I ended up taking photos on my iphone, which ended up better than my actual camera anyway.
So with young children that I rarely photographed (unless it was to model some knitting *blush*) and new patterns waiting for me to write them up we decided it was time to invest in a real camera. And I think everyone I know will be sick of hearing me say it - but I love it.
I wanted to get a few shots of David in his new jersey today. He's quick these days now that he's walking, always keen to get into mischief. But taking photos of a moving object is a piece of cake now.
These are a few of my personal favourites today:
But this one I had to giggle at - I think this is my photo of the day!
This one fits so perfectly with the name and meaning of this pattern currently in development and close to testing. Greyson - son of the grey-haired man.
