Well, the human eye and brain work together to do things that our cameras cannot do. The eyes and brain make adjustments to focus and reconcile the light and darkness, color, motion, etc. That is why we don't have a simple, one-button camera that just gets whatever you see.
It is one thing to try to use our tools to capture what you see, or what you think you see. But then, what about what you want to see, or how you choose to remember certain aspects of what you saw? Usually, I try to take pictures that closely resemble what my eyes see, but this scene was actually very dark, so that the autofocus didn't work. First, I flipped a light switch for a little ambient light, but then I also aimed a remote flash up to the ceiling, and off to the side just a little. I leaned a white board at the bottom to use as a reflector and... FLASH! The light was overwhelming! They waited patiently to let me make adjustments to match what my eyes saw. You know what? I would rather remember it this way. My first picture is the favorite of the set.
What do I see? My lovely daughter is safe and provided for. It is an environment that is (usually) casual and relaxed. Our humble abode is, well... irrelevant.
