Shoot and Edit: Red

January 31, 2011 Sarah Coggins

Saturday I pulled out the paints so we could make a handprint heart plaque (yes, I’m officially addicted to handprint & footprint art while Dylan is still small).  Dylan was sooo excited and very patient with Trent & I as we helped him.  Afterward, I handed him the paper plate I had squirted red paint on and the foam brush so he could “free paint.”  He had a blast.  And I got several shots.  My favorite for the Shoot and Edit red challenge is this one:

ISO 3200, ss 1/100, f5.3

    Love it!! Now I need to see a picture of that plaque! My plaque spot has been sadly blank since I took down the Christmas one.

    ah man...that brings me back to the good 'ol days where no one cared if you got your hands all covered with red paint! So cute!

    Love that red! You're more brave than I am. I'd be very afraid to let my little tornado "free paint" ;)
