San Francisco Fog

One of the coolest things about little kids is how they don’t worry about many things adults worry about, like weather or getting dirty.

Just check out the faces of Maddie and her lil’ sister Vivi, and you’ll see what I mean!  Through dense morning fog to the wet ground, they ran around the San Francisco park like any other day.

It was great to see The P Family again.  Last time, Vivi was just born!  Um, yea, I’d say she has changed a little!  😉

    What a cute family!

    I was wondering how you got the focus for the girl on the swing. And also, with regards to the ever-so-flattering photo of the girl eating a cookie, was that just sunlight hitting them on the head and face? What’s the light source reflecting in her eyes?

    Thanks for the pictures!

    • Hi Andrew!

      Swing photos are difficult because there is motion, so it takes many shots to get it. The good thing about swings, however, is that the movements are predictable. You can either follow the person on the swing and shoot through the movement, or you can focus on where you want to take the shot and shoot when she arrives in that spot. For the shot I posted above, I stood to the side of her, focused on where she’d end up, and then waited til she swung into position. I had to do this a few times because I couldn’t always see her face (it would be covered by her arm or the chain, etc).

      For the food shot (hee hee, that one cracks me up!), the light is pretty even because of the fog. The catchlight you see in the toddler’s eyes is from the light-colored building that was in front of her.

      Hope that helped!


  3. wow, Annie. You’ve done it again. Everyone one of these pictures warm my heart. Thank you so much for capturing our silly morning in the foggy playground. I love the colors and dimensions in all the photos! Just striking. You are such a blessing.
