iheartfaces Challenge - Jump for Joy

This week iheartfaces is Jumping for Joy! I am jumping for joy because I am finally starting to understand my camera in manual mode!! Yay for me!

I am also trying to take photos for the challenge instead of going through my folders and finding what I feel is the perfect shot. I have many pictures of my son jumping that I could have used but I really wanted to use my newfound "manual" skills and get a new shot.

So, here is my wonderful hubby jumping for joy. The poor guy was sick but obliged me in my quest to get a good shot. I took several this day and many of my son but I decided to go with this one. I like the contrast of the b&w conversion. Unfortunately I can't seem to fix the blown-out side of his face. Live and learn. To see outtakes from my attempts at Jumping for Joy, click here.
