capturing the love

I love love. I love capturing love in my images. I love looking at pictures that portray emotion, connection and love. This picture below makes me smile. It allows me to feel the love. So I wanted to share it and I thought I would share my manual settings and any details that might help just a tad to acheive a love-y image.

This was shot in the late afternoon and I’m proud of this image because this one has four little wiggly boys in it. The sun is behind my subjects and just a bit in my camera. I am shooting so that the sun is not coming directly or intensely into my camera, but rather just a bit in the corner.

ISO – 500
aperture – F 5
shutter speed – 1/250
lens – canon’s 35mm 1.4L
camera body – canon’s 5D mark II
