Ivy’s Straw by Leanne Lindsay

Two Ponytails, by Shirren Lim inspired me to take this photograph of a little girl with pig tails enjoying playing with a straw. It was her birthday, and everyone was gathered around to celebrate but she was more interested in playing with the straw. This photograph was taken with my Nikon Z7ii and Sigma Art 24-70mm lens at 62mm, with an aperture of 2.8, a shutter speed of 1/100 seconds and an ISO of 160. The background behind the little girl was less than pleasing, with chairs and tables, so using a wide aperture ensured that the background fell into dreamy bokeh. The choice to shoot in black and white for this photograph was a personal one as I have always loved black and white portraiture and this photograph leant itself perfectly to black and white.

Born in Adelaide in 1962, Leanne Lindsay’s family moved to Sydney when she was 12 years old. She was gifted her first camera for her 21st birthday but a break-in saw her precious camera stolen just 3 years later. It was only in her late 50s she was able to afford to replace it and now in her 60s she has discovered a passion that was sadly lost many years ago. She now photographs families and newborns but enjoys architectural photography and landscapes in particular.
