As you all know, Callum does't normally consent to being photographed, never minding posing for the camera, but for some reason yesterday he was in a posing mood!
It was all because of the hats and things I put in a little dress up box I made up for him (boy style - although there are a few of my handbags and necklaces in there too!) He would run through, grab something, and proceeded to run around with it on his head (Yes, handbags too) Although he didn't exactly pose for me, he did stand still long enough - and generally in enough light thankfully - so I could get a shot of him, which for Callum, is saying something.
It was actually really lovely to have fun taking his picture and not worry about whether the depth of field was good, or whether my shutter speed was fast enough - I was just clicking away because we were playing a game with it. Callum had a blast - he enjoyed himself so much that I'm hoping he will start to see getting his photo taken as fun!
This one shows just how bad he is when asked to pose for the camera. Cheese anyone?
There are actually more on the same vein, just different "accessories" so I thought I would stop there before I bore you too much with photos of my little cherub!
These were all taken with my Tamron 28-75mm
at F2.8. I'm finding this to be a really great "everyday" lens - the focal range is great for indoors and the lens is pretty sharp (when you do finally nail focus on a crazed three year old) and it's not heavy at all, so for the relatively low price I love it. I'm not sure how good this lens is going to be, focal length wise, on my full frame (6 sleeps and counting!) so we shall wait and see!
Anyway, I think these might be my favorite photos this month, as un-technically sound they are (some are slightly soft, some have bad light, and all have backgrounds that I would have changed!) but because they show his slightly crazy personality, the love of putting anything and everything on his head, and the fun we had together, they are priceless.
