Gallery: Sleep or Bedtime Photo Contest Winners
Yay! Week One of our photo contest is completed and we have two winners of Scholastic’s Treasury of 20 Storybook Classics 4-DVD set.
Our theme of sleep or bedtime was inspired by Bear Snores On… and More ‘Beary Adorable Tales, one of the DVDs included in the story pack.
Winner #1: Donna from Rochester, Massachusetts:
Is bedtime a task or a joy of parenting? It sure looks fun to us. Lots of photos capture memories for parents, but this one will have meaning for the kids a few decades from now when they realize Mom and Dad weren’t so bad after all. Next time though, Dad, pretend Mom isn’t holding a camera!
Winner #2: Kara from Slidell, Louisiana:
Simply lovely. Notice the camera is at bed height. Turn off the flash, turn on a bedroom light, and hold the camera tightly with both hands on top of your bent knee to reduce camera shake. Or use a tripod or set it on a flat service with a timer. Either way, natural light and shadows do wonders for sleep photos.
Here are the other wonderful entries. Some funny, all cute. Thank you for sharing your family with ours and other Thinga-readers.
Pinkbeary (because you could only submit one photo, I made her decide which of her daughters is cuter):
Thanks everyone. Great photos! Please e-mail a photo for Week Two of the contest: nature!
