What is it about photography that you love? Have you really ever thought about it? Your answer is possibly totally different than what it is for me, both technically and emotionally. For me it’s always been about capturing moments. I don’t tend to pose a lot, or even if I do, I try to make it look not posed. Most of the time I think what people do naturally is the most beautiful. That’s why on a session with me, between shots I’m often saying “Oh wait no, do that again!” because people always tend to make the best expressions or poses when they are sure the camera is off of them! It usually causes laughter when I shout that at them though, so voila, there’s a great image!
I’m seeking to branch out a bit though and capture more of those types of images. I want to spend time with families in their homes making real home life images, not just the posed ones you see everywhere else. I want real life, real emotion, real moments. Moments like these, with Evan, a very precocious 2 1/2 year old boy.
These were taken with a 24-70mm 2.8 lens. Here is part two with a 50 mm 1.4 to see the difference!
