Photo-A-Day #1862

Last year my sister Tara found a big Tonka farm at a yard sale. When I got home today Allison, Eva and I played with the farm out on the front yard. Eva has names for all the animals. Wilbur for the pig, of course, Phillipe for both horses and the bull is named bull and the cow is named Bessie. The farmer is named Betsy. She insists on calling him Betsy. She cracks me up.

Today I did some filming for work. I ran the camera but received input on placement and lighting. I hardly ever think of lighting and I pretty much never set lighting before I take photos. For the most part I shoot what I see and I don’t stage things. Even yesterday’s Mr. Potato Head was barely moved from where I initially had it. I tend to move around a subject and get the shot I want rather than staging shots and setting lighting.

Funny since today’s photo is so blown out. But I like how It looks and really draws you to Eva’s eyes.
