It has been quite a while that I snapped "rolls of film" at Hannah, mainly because of longer working hours and building The Garden, but today was an early-off day, so I took the chance while playing with Hannah on the floor to hold down her developments
Sitting in her whole beauty, 9 months and 2 days old, and actually not much heavier than a month ago, because she started to use more of that stored energy, wiggling around in my arms and "moving" around on the floor (more about that later)
Hannah loves to play with balloons, pouncing or scratching it
Also this was the first to time to play with a helium-filled one that would float up when let free
Hannah has gotten more and more hair, especially in the middle, making her look cute like Kewpie!
Well, not always of course...
And sometimes even less
So, here's what Hannah loves most about balloons
Searching for the knotted end
Let go, and repeat
Hannah has also started to move around more on the floor, rather quick actually
There is only one problem
It's only working backwards!
I just hope she will not drive car like that backwards: bouncing off left and right, until cornered in!
In the first pic, Hannah sits in the shadow, than I swiveled the ceiling light for more brightness. Still the first pics turned out rather grainy, noise, because my camera was working on ISO 10.000! The biggest apperture on my zoom lens is only F 3.5, and I had the time set to 1/50, but that still wasn't enough. I also did a lot of the shots "from the hip", pointing the camera at Hannah without looking through the finder. If you don't get too close, you can still crop the picture afterwards to get it balanced. This way you will get a very different angle, eg looking upwards to the face, making the composition much more interesting (but also showing a very different area in the background)
