About the Image(s)

I took this photo of my grandson recently. He was just starting to crawl and was very curious about the camera. I set the camera up on a platypod on the floor and let him crawl towards the camera, which was easy to get him to do because he really wanted to get to the camera. I just did some basic editing.

He is a cutie! The hand being up indicates movement, and the look on his face shows intent on where he is going. You say he was interested in the camera; reckon he will be a photographer?   Posted: 11/10/2019 10:49:48

Great catch. Suggest you remove the chair on the left. The rest of the background is nicely blurred--what were you shooting data, especially the aperture?
Our grandkids are a bit older, now 6 and 8. About a year ago, I bought a couple of simple old digital cameras, Canon ELPH, and give them to the kids in the backseat of the car whenever we take them on outings. Now they tease and argue less with each other, and take bizzare pictures.   Posted: 11/11/2019 10:05:48

I love the intensity of the look on his face and the sense of motion you caught in this photo. I liked Stephen's idea of removing the chair on the left so much that I took the photo into Photoshop and cropped and cloned until I had what I thought would work. What do you think? The crop also has the benefit of putting the subject in the thirds position instead of the center.   Posted: 11/11/2019 17:24:07
