Tractors & Tiaras

Here are a few of my faves from the Tractors & Tiaras shoot!

All images taken with my Canon 5D Mark II and Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 Lens

All in all the shoot went well, though the sun decided to go behind a big cloud JUST as the perfect golden hour light was setting in. I had hoped for a more sunkissed look for most of these.  I also wasn’t able to get any great shots of the two kids together, but with two toddlers cooperation is hard to come by!

The one thing I wish I had done differently was get more zoomed in shots of the kids faces.  I was so taken with the tractor and the gorgeous surroundings that I tended to zoom out and shoot at the wide end of my 28-75, which means less bokeh than if I had zoomed in to 75.  This also reinforces my desire to get my hands on a 70-200.. though I still worry about trying to get eye contact while so far from my subjects. But realistically, eye contact was hard to come by anyway, so at least I would have had gorgeous bokeh with my non-eye contact shots!

Fiona, the golden hour is the hour just before sunset when the light is golden.. there’s even a golden hour calculator website!
