One photo. That’s it. Was it hard for you to choose? Was for me, that’s for sure!
In the end, I could not deny the sweet, little, tiny, good smelling face of Elijah.
I love this shot, not just because it’s sweet, little, tiny, good smelling Elijah, but also because it’s shot in manual, with very little editing. (the shot was slightly underexposed, so I brightened it a tiny bit in photoshop.) I have made a commitment to only shoot in manual, starting this week – it’s hard but it’s the only way I’ll ever become comfortable with it!
By the way, if you are shooting in manual (or any other setting besides auto) feel free to provide your settings with your photos so we can all learn!
Okay, here’s my shot. He was on my lap and he was oh so happy. and also maybe a little concerned.
and also completely CUTE.

Now it’s your turn to share but first, UNFORTUNATELY, I have to revisit a few very important rules for You Capture, so please read, if you plan to participate.
1. USE YOUR OWN PHOTOS. I know, DUH, but apparently not everyone does. (stealing photos from other sources is illegal, kthxbye.)
2. DO NOT SEARCH ARCHIVES FOR OLD PHOTOS that fit the current theme. Although we know you are proud and want to showcase your photos, please feel free to do so, just don’t link it to You Capture. The purpose of You Capture is to get you inspired to pick up your camera.
3. PLEASE LINK TO YOUR BLOG POST ABOUT YOU CAPTURE, not your blog. I mean, GAH.
(I may or may not be a little frustrated, as you can see.)
So, with that, let’s share, friends!
But first …
