Photo a day – May 20

This boy wakes up early and spends a little time alone with God. Pretty much the sweetest thing ever for my mama heart to see.

My tip for today is:

Watch out for “hot spots”. You don’t really want them. See the bright sun spot on my boy’s leg? I was trying to sneak in one quick picture without him noticing me so I didn’t mess with it. But if I was going to make this image better, I would have made sure the curtain was closed where that sun spot was coming through. That would have filtered and softened the sunlight on his leg which is overexposed. So, this is an imperfect shot, but still the sweetest ever in my opinion. ;)

ISO – 500 (inside filtered window light through curtains)
