I shot these when my daughter and I went for a date to IKEA in late February this year. A date started with ice cream and a walk around the IKEA floors and then ended with chicken wings and iced lemon tea.
They were shot using Panasonic GF1 and 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens at f/1.7 and ISO 500. The exposure metering was manual to ensure that I could expose her face well due to strong back lighting. It gave me a shutter speed of 1/30 sec.
A quick personal note to share. There are few little things that I like when going out with her, among many other things of course:
- holding her little hands
- when she rests her head on my chest when we are on the train or taxi
- when she looks up at me and asks if she can buy something she likes. Never a big item by the way and not every time we go out.
That lovely daughter and daddy’s relationship. 🙂
Back in January this year, she drew these for me on a sheet of paper. She drew on both sides of the paper and folded it to become like a card and it has a story of a little sheep too. You can see the folding mark in the middle.
And by the way … her mommy got a similar card too in case you ask. 🙂
