bath time with a new camera.

so i definitely spent the whole weekend with the new camera glued to my hands.  there are a few differences in the controls & dials from my old rebel but i think i'm kinda sorta maybe getting the hang of it.  it's still gonna take lots of practice til it's all second nature again though {check out some practice shots posted on my photo blog}.

good thing i have such a willing & happy model to experiment on!  p-ray was in true form last night during bath time so i snapped a few shots.  but here's the thing... the light in our bathroom is crrrrrap.  no pun intended.  no seriously, it's bad {and ok, the pun was kinda intended}.  i had to do lots of white balance tweaking in photoshop & the such as.  overall though, i think the cute kid speaks for himself, amiright?



he's crazy about his baths.  he would stay in there all night if we let him.  but only sitting up.  getting on his back or tummy is pretty much out of the question & in his mind?  pretty much the most terrifying thing that could ever happen to a kid.  {screams people, screams.  panic.  shaking!}

and getting out?  that's no fun at all.  but there's just something about a baby fresh out of his bath all wrapped up in a warm cozy towel that may or may not be on my list of top five favorite things.  ever.

  10. He's SO cute!!!!

    Mason loves bath time too. We've found that having the tub drain while he's in it helps relieve the getting out sads. He realizes once the water is gone that it's no fun any more and we rarely have tears now, usually he goes "All done!!" and that's it. It's been a lifesaver since after bath meltdowns suck!

  19. Those photos of your little man wrapped up in the towels are beyond precious. My daughter used to hate being on her back or belly in the bath and then one day she just started doing it. He'll get there. :)

    Also, have you tried using Kelvin when setting your white balance. Once I learned about Kelvin and practiced a bunch I never use any other setting for WB. Seriously that amazing. :)
