My new Nikon hates my son Lucian. Or his eyes at least. I don’t know if I will ever be able to capture my funny five year old in a low lighting situation any time soon. And this seems to be just a problem for him exclusively with the flash.
Trying to capture an impromptu shot of my three boys:
Not bad, except for Lucian’s closed eyes. Let’s try that again.
Perfect shot, especially of Warren. (What a sweet face!) Too bad Lucian’s eyes are still closed. Lucian does get bonus points for his enthusiast smile though.
Oh just forget it.
And last night I took twelve, yes, TWELVE pictures of Lucian in a row and they all turned out like this.
If I just consider this shot I would say he was doing it on purpose. I’m going to cover my eyes, mom!
Except he wasn’t doing it on purpose. Even when he specifically posed for the shots, his eyes are still closed. I actually couldn’t stop laughing about it after a certain point because it was getting so ridiculous.
I swear, that flash is out to get this poor boy. Hopefully my Nikon warms up to him soon because I’d really miss his beautiful blue eyes!
