Small Camera, Simple Light

After nearly five months of recuperating after breaking my collarbone while learning to ski, I am excited at the prospect of holding my camera again. I mean, actually holding it up to my eye. The other day when I was teaching my photo class, one of my students had a technical question at the end of class. I took her camera and was actually able to lift it to my eye! Such excitement! It was like picking-up and old perfectly worn teddy bear somehow. It felt so great to be close to being able to shoot for real finally.

I went to visit a friend of mine the other day who is home with her newborn. I took this shot while I was there. He's cute as can be.

It can be done with just a simple Canon Sure Shot and some good window light!
