I ♥ Faces ~ Week 11



It's contest time again over at I ♥ Faces!!! I am so excited to have won 5th place last week in the Kids category....What a complete honor! My adorable little niece "T" made it so easy to take a great picture.

This week's theme is right up my alley.....No Flash!!! Considering that I don't even own an external flash and loathe to use my pop-up, I am drawn to natural light. There is really nothing like it. It can create such beautiful photos and incredible catchlights in the subject's eyes.

I was going to head outside tomorrow and try to get some new shots, but it's going to be crappy weather and I just don't really feel like dealing with all that. So, my shots for this week's contest are a couple of old ones again. Maybe next week I'll be able to get something new.

So, here are my entries.....

I don't know how you do it! I can't get a decent pic without my flash. Seriously, the big clunky thing is ALWAYS on my camera! I need photography lessons!

Love the temple pic in the post below. It's gorgeous! Are you LDS? (I am).

Beautiful photos, both of them. Love the light in the little boys eyes. I like the composition of your adult shot. Oh yes, I also like the header on your blog.

I love both of these shots, but there was something about those little boys eyes that really captured me!

Carebear said...

Oh, double Wow - Great entries for No Flash week! I love the eyes and how the light just makes the skin creamy in your kid entry. But that adult entry is AWESOME. I won't be surprised to see it in a top spot on Saturday!
