I know that some will complain that the bubbles are blurred. The focal points were on my daughter rather than the moving bubbles.

I looked at the stats of all the shots that I did with bubbles (only 11 had any decent amount of bubbles). I see that I shot this one at 1/60 of a second when the others were at 1/80 and had better definition on the bubbles. This is the only one that was good from those 11. I bounce between wishing I shot with a faster shutter speed to get better definition to the bubbles and other times I like the blur for it adds a sense of motion. We shall see what others think.

My thanks to my husband who helped with blowing the bubbles just off camera. This was a tough shot to get the bubbles in the shot and have my eldest smiling at the same time. To get a good smile I had to bring the laptop on the porch to play music she liked or funny videos


For the curious: The music that we were listening too in this shot is Morning Sky / Nintendo's Final Fantasy videogame

And last, but not least, Thank you for your comments and votes.

Not sure the skin tone is doing this shot any favours. I like the smile.

I can see that. It does not seem like she is aware that she has been caught on camera.
