photo tip : tell a story

Below are perfectly cute photos. One looking at the camera, and one in "action".

*All photos - Canon 5D Mark II 85mm 1.8 (ISO 400, 1.8, 1/320)*

This is also a perfectly cute photo. Different angle, different processing.

But, to tell a story, it helps to zoom into a tiny parts. Hands, feet, and mouth will usually do the trick.

See? I love tiny hands and feet. And as much as I love the first few photos, I know I'm going to enjoy looking at my son's tiny hands holding the crayons and how he had to stand on the dining room chair to draw. The small parts matter.
