Photo 52: A Play on Light

Natural Indoor Light - Week 1

Well it's now January of 2013, and because it's a winter month for most of us our photography group decided that Natural Indoor Light would be an appropriate theme to challenge us to find available and interesting light in our hibernation.  

For Christmas this year Santa put a Lensbaby in my stocking and I have been spending time striving to master its capabilities.  (A Lensbaby is a special effects lens that creates an area of focus in your image surrounded by beautiful blur).  For this month's debut image I chose to capture my son at play near the window which was getting some diffuse afternoon light.  My vision was to show the detail of some of his hair while the rest of it faded into a blurry mane and the Lensbaby helped me achieve it.  Below is my little Lion King.
