Gracie's Shoesies - My first little photo project

Hi there, I have been "threatening" to do a small project for a while now. My goal is to come up with a handful of achievable projects that I could complete in under a week. This first one is of my daughter Grace's shoes. For a 2 1/2 year old, she had almost as many kicks as Imelda Marcos! Here is a sampling of them. they are so cute to look back on... Her feet are bigger now, her vocabulary is bigger now... As I write this post, she is playing with the shoes, bringing them to me saying "awwww, these are cute!!!" and "Daddy, you wear one!".

For the photographers, I made these with the Nikon 105mm Macro, 1/125 @f5, ISO 400. I lit it with a Nikon SB-900 @ 1/32 power through a beauty dish. I snagged a couple pieces of wood from an unused shelving unit, polished them up and started shooting.
