My husband and I had this idea to try to catch a flag reflection in our daughter's eyes. It was about 108 degrees while we were trying so it was tough lol!

And another 4th of July pic just for fun, my last "studio" style pics before I get my new lighting, yay!! Now that I see it again it looks like the color is a little off!

OMG, you are a genius, I love it!!!!!!!!!! And well done too. I just returned from my hometown in Prince Edward Island, Canada, and was trying to get a shot of the canadian flag flying over the beach I grew up on. It isn't easy to get a great shot of a flag, as you know. You want some movement in the flag, but you don't want it straight out, and you don't want it so curled up or twisted that it wrecks the line of the flag. You NAILED it, AND you had the added complication of getting it reflected onto a small space (her eyeballs). Nicely done!

Stacey, excellent job. You absolutely nailed that first picture.


I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

Thank you so much! Luckily our flag wasn't moving, we were on a big porch with tons of huge windows and the flag was hung in one of them. I took SO many shots before I got the right one though, my daughter was getting tired of staring at the flag for so long lol!

Thank you Becky!! I'm so glad the flag picture turned out because it was TOUGH to get!! I wanted to be further back from her so it wasn't such a close up but the flags just didn't show up well that way.
