Team-Up Thursday~ SLEEP

This week, I suggested the idea of SLEEP! I'm fairly certain it had a little something to do with the fact that I was craving SLEEP at the time. As it turns out, it was a fun theme that had me using my tripod for the first time in half a year.

For my shot, I waited until Sugar Bear was sound asleep. I snuck into her room with my tripod and camera. I let the light from the hallway fall on her face. I set my shutter speed on .60 of a second,and snapped a few shots. I wanted to just have her face lit up, so I stood in between the light in the hallway and Sugar Bear with my arms shaping an "O" above my head. This created a shadow that surrounded her face, and gave it a perfect frame.

Berta's shot melts my heart. I miss those days of holding a sleeping child. There really is nothing as sweet as holding a little one in your arms as they travel through dream land. sigh.....

These photos are unbearably cute. Sleeping babes are one of my favorite things. They are look so sweet and vulnerable. What a great idea to frame her face with the light.
