After trying unsuccessfully to get my 3-year-old son to pose for me in a field of Bluebonnets I decided to go for more of a candid approach. I simply told him and my nephew (in the background) to chase me and try to grab the camera which I was holding in front of me. After dozens of shots from various angles and elevations, I finally got one I really liked. The built in flash was used for fill since I was shooting into the sun. No Photoshop tricks were used for this one. The blur is a result of the wide angle lens and camera movement.
Important: Don’t let the kids actually catch the camera as massive lens smudging from dirty little hands can occur. 🙂
