Eskimo baby!!!


We are getting ready to go to Chicago in a couple of weeks so I had to get this hat. He really worked the camera today :). My camera got here yesterday so I am still trying to learn all the features. What best way to learn .. My little model is awesome.

Those are awesome photos and a perfect subject. What camera did you get? I want to learn how to blur the background like that. Is it a setting you have to adjust?

Hi Shannon, thank you. To get a blur background I normally use a wide opening on my lens. I'm normally close to Diego when I take pics of him. Once I focus on his eyes anything that is behind him gets a blur.I'm not sure what camera you are shooting in, but my recommendation will be to try putting the lens at maximum zoom and the widest available aperture (if you can control that). I'll try it out on my P&S and see how well it goes.
