Layla Grace

Stepping back to talk about something very important for a moment.

Layla Grace is a beautiful 2 year old little girl who is battling cancer (stage 4 Neuroblastoma). I came across her story through a friend and have been following it very closely. Her story is heartbreaking to say the least. I just want to help make more people aware of her situation, in hopes this little girl will get many more prayers and thoughts. No child or family should ever have to go through this.

You can find Layla’s story here: http://laylagrace.org/

Follow her on twitter here: @LaylaGrace

Facebook page: Praying for Layla Grace

Also please check out Heather Milano Photography if you know a family who has a child that is terminally ill.

(*It was posted in previous days that supporters of Layla Grace could use her photos to spread word about her story.).

Anyway here are the edits:

 

Morning Pictures… February 24, 2010

Took some pictures of the kids this morning and I can see a ton of things wrong with them, but hey I just woke up and my lighting in the house sucks. I need a flash and that’s that!

In this one I had my AP to small, which actually happened with all of them, so it’s a little out of focus and blurry because of the slow SS speed. Also the exposure looks a bit off to me.

F/1.8, 1/8 sec, ISO:320

Edit done using Photoshop Elements

Again the low AP and slow SS messed up this picture.

f/1.8, 1/8 sec, ISO 320

Edit using Photoshop Elements

The exposure in this one looks off, to dark I think

f/2.2, 1/40 sec, ISO:400

Edit using photoshop elements

The exposure in this one is off and no catch lights

f/2.2, 1/50 sec, ISO 400

Edit in Photoshop Elements

No focus!

F/1.8, 1/8 sec, ISO:320
