The Creativity Project

Hello Summer! is this month's theme for our Creativity Project. Our circle is growing so be sure to click through us all so you don't miss out! In the summer we are busy and on the go! Here is a sample of what summer fun is to us.

Beaches in the evenings...Swimming with crazy Uncle Bill...Restaurants at the beach... Asbury Park boardwalk...The racetrack!Vacations to magical places...Stepping off line at the Farmer's Market to watch the train go by...

Every. Time.

Sparklers, fireworks, catching fireflies, and s'mores in the evenings...

Shooting from the Waist

We came back to NJ at the start of a heatwave. Yay.

We also came back to a water main break. Make that 3 water main breaks that affected our county.

Yay.

Today we took L back to the fossil beds. I find myself turning on all of my focus points and shooting from the waist more and more when we are out and about.

These were all shot (except the water main break image) from the waist in manual with my 24-70mm 2.8. Many of my Disney photos were shot the same way. The 24-70mm was my BFF in Disney. It was the only lens I brought with me each day. I was able to carry my camera and backpack camera bag the entire time in Disney without any problems. I also brought along the GoPro and my Canon G12 each day. Oh, and my camera bag's waterproof cover came in handy!

Do you ever shoot from the waist?

XOXO--
