We were winding down for the day and my son took the chance to lay himself out on our bar stools. This was so typical of him. I often find him in unusual locations, playing with his reading app on the iPad. I took the opportunity to snap up my camera and capture the moment. It’s such a typical scene in our home.
How I Shot It
Using the ipad light as a source of light, I metered off of his face to take the photo. For this shot, I wanted to take into account the height of the bar stools. I placed myself on the ground and engaged my ab muscles to get an upward angle. I love the dark room and the isolated light on his face. He was completely unaware of what I was doing, simply enjoying his perch and eyes intent on the screen.
