Rain Rain Go Away

***Giveaway ends January 6th. Go HERE to enter. ***

The middle of December brought a lot of rain to our area (3 days of nonstop to be exact). I just wanted to share some wonderful pictures I was able to capture of the delight my daughter found in every puddle. My camera battery died and I just barely found my charger so sorry this is so late in coming.

I am by no means an expert, but I was very pleased with capturing the spray of the water, each individual droplet of water cascading around her legs. And still getting a crisp image of my daughter running. I set my shutter speed very high and had my camera set on continuous shooting. So I took a LOT of photos very quickly. I just held the button down and snapped as she ran towards me. I weeded through the photos to find the ones I liked best.

This one I needed to lower my aperture, but it all happened so quickly that I didn't have time to adjust. So, I recommend just setting your aperture low to begin with.
She was soaked by the end, but she was so pleased to be able to put her rain boots to good use. My neighbor came out and watched for a bit. She told me later, "I am so glad you can allow your kids to be real kids."

Photo tip today is: Let your kids be real kids and let the pictures tell the story. Such a simple moment that made my daughter so happy and I have great photos to look back on the fun.
