It's not the assignment that I was given.
I thought I would have a great time in sunny Florida taking pictures of well lit things and looking at objects abstractly. But, I was drawn to something different as soon as all the kids gathered together and well, it was the kids. I really wanted to focus on photographing all the children in their natural element. No posed pictures. I wanted to get them on the run.
In order to do this, I used two different lens. My 75-300mm lens and and my macro, 100mm 1:2.8.
I liked the telephoto lens for the beach. I didn't feel intrusive and got expressions that I would normally miss if I was in their faces.
(This may not be the best picture, but I just like the way Ry is hanging out in the water...just waiting for that shark to come nibble at his toes.)
I'm also a fan of the silhouettes. It sets a calming tone, which I enjoy.
Believe it or not, I was pretty close to sweet Millie (daughter of Joslyn) when I took these. Still had my big lens on and set at sport. Click away, you never know what you might get!
Next up, using my macro lens at the pool.
