High Key

As often happens when shooting for a photo challenge, I end up all over the place before the idea and image gel into a usable and satisfactory entry.

We were just beginning our vacation, and I took a shot of my daughter for fun. Then, a few days later the newest challenge was announced at Dgrin, where I try to enter the bi-weekly challenge.

The photo I took was in my mind a perfect example of high key,but it was taken out of the date range, so I kept it in mind for the next posing opportunity.

Not one to put all my eggs in one basket, however, as I wondered through Quebec City, I kept HIGH KEY in mind. *(hmm, here is how my brain works– Eggs in a basket could be a really cool high key image too!

And when we got to Acadia, I was able to almost recreate the shot.

Then, we came home, and I had the chance to do Layla’s 9 month photos, and all other options went out the window the moment she started to clap hands.

Here is the original, out of date idea.

And the photo I ended up using. Smile
