Our daily ritual is to play with the “Ipap” every night before we go to bed. I am a reader and before the Ipad we used to read stories… We play with educational apps, lately fragments of movies. I am not too concerned is not a book, they will be around, in electronic format.
I was with Aidan on his bed and I noticed how the light from the Ipad reflected on his face. I though how cool would it be to get a picture of this exact moment, so unique and intimate. Then I thought there is not enough light! I almost discarded the idea then I thought twice… That is why I spent all that money, didn’t I? In any case it wouldn’t be the first time I get a lousy shot. I got my camera and played, and played, and played! Different lenses (I used my nifty fifty thinking 1.8 aperture would help), I changed ISO… He was not looking at me at all, and all from a sudden I got the right combination! The gods of light, technique and composition got together and magic happened!
