Photography Theme Thursdays

Cari over at Clan Donaldson has started a link-up for photography, and this week's theme happens to be "Sunflare or Haze."  Well, that worked perfectly for me since I'd taken these photos of the girls this weekend.  If you missed them on Sunday, here they are again in their glowing glory :)

I learned on an online photography group that this is called "backlighting" and I likely had the settings wrong on my camera to focus correctly with this type of light, but I think they still turned out great!  I used my Canon T3 with my new 50mm lens.

And it is actually getting cool again in South Texas, so don't any Northerners get too jealous.  I just wish we had some snow days every now and then...

Thanks for hosting, Cari!

Blair, these are gorgeous. The next sunny day we have, I'm taking me one of my models and going to try this. So, so pretty.

Also, I'm jealous of the quality of light in South Texas- golden but not yellowy.

Thanks for linking up.

So beautiful, Blair! Your girls are angels and the backlight really brought that out. The blond hair helped! I too am jealous of your golden lighting. Everything is so dreary here right now, and the light is always so so white.

Your backlighting is gorgeous and fresh, and hey, it doesn't hurt that your subject matter is too!

Kathleen said...

Your children look like sun nymphs! So cool!

Natalie said...

Such pretty girls! And I'm so jealous of the sunshine. =)

Oh wow - these are BEAUTIFUL!!! Both girls look so much like you too! I'm a little jealous of how nice your models were for you :)

We just moved to east Texas and we've been enjoying the ridiculous weather too!!

Their faces are as radiant as the sunlight!
