She Swings High!

Strawberry Park. Charlotte. North Carolina. USA
With a telephoto lens you can be far away from you subject.  That coupled with a wide f-stop will provide that shallow depth of field blurring the background.  This brings the attention into your subject and isolates the visual impact for the viewers.  Another great benefit from being far away from your subject...  you're far away.  They don't notice you. You are not in their space.  Especially with kids...  they relax and do their own thing.  That is when you can capture magic.


  1. Very good job! I like this picture I took a similar one last week with my son, but not of this quality.
    I'll follow you to learn more about shooting beautiful pictures.
    Thanks a lot
