So...Sunday was my family reunion...I knew like 3 people there (ok, it was 5) out of like, 30 or so...and everyone there was either very old or very young...and my little cousin Nicole and I were EXTREMELY BORED. So, I decided to get some practice with my portraiture, and it was a perfect day to practice exposure in a difficult lighting situation (VERY bright and harsh light!). So...here is my cousin Nicole. And boys, watch what you say...she's only 15, and I'm having a hard enough time dealing with the fact that she's growing up! This would have been my favorite had I gotten the focus right! I think I may have put this at too much of an angle...let me know your thoughts. I told her to give me her serious look. I think she's pretty darn good at it! Critique is welcomed and appreciated!!!! Oh, and I'll probably be adding some more after bit....this is just a few of what I took. I took A LOT!
