Focal Length:80mm
Shutter:1/400 sec


This is the last photo I’ll share from the pumpkin-patch assignment. This stop-action shot is of my youngest, who like most little kids moves quickly and constantly, so fast shutter speeds are a must to capture the action. (Sometimes I wish I had a “stop-action” button to use at home!)

To summarize: mid-day sunlight is definitely harsh and challenging. And when you go on vacation and have a choice, morning or early evening shoots will give you more pleasing results. But if it’s an event in the middle of the day, involving your kids, definitely still take your camera. You may get shadowy faces, but you’ll still capture some sweet memories.
