While visiting with a local fellow photographer today, she asked if there was a place where she could see some of my work. I thought of my blog of course, but then had to drop the disclaimer that it is sadly behind. And frankly, I am tired of that excuse! So either I drop the blog, or I at least try and get some content up here on a fairly regular basis. I teased recently about some upcoming pics from my travels and that is going to happen soon, but I thought I would put up some content while I am processing those shots. I thought back of a shoot I did last year that really went well. I have some friends in town who wanted me to do a shoot of their kids. These kids are awesome and each have their own very distinct personalities. You tell me if you can tell what those are!
Just playing around a little and we got a cool shot.
I keep getting asked if this is “photoshopped.” The answer is “No.” The water was still and lended itself to the shot. Of course it was not still as soon as the kids started chunking mud clods and rocks into it. Kids are after all kids.
This was the cover of the photobook the parents ordered.
I think this is my favorite shot of the day. This one and the pond reflection are my favorite.
Not one to give a big smile when you want him too, this smile captures this young man’s kind spirit.
This young man can be pretty intense sometimes. This shot captured that.
I saw a photography blog not long before this shoot about adding motion to your photographs. One of the suggestions for photographing girls was to have them spin into the shot. I think it was a good idea.
Emily is a beautiful young lady with some great expressions. She was great to work with.
Yeah, again, this guy is smooth.
This was one of my favorite shots.
This is the ham of the group… can’t you tell?
