Into the light

Into the light, originally uploaded by It's life Jim.....
A quick portrait practice shot with my son. Most of the time he is OK with posing.... as long as it is either quick as this one was (2 or 3 mins), or fun stuff like throwing flour or lightpainting.

This was just experimenting with lighting techniques to get a slightly more unusual portrait.

Family portrait with dog

One from a recent shoot. Interesting trying to get family portraits, especially with pets involved. Quite like how this one turned out - managed to even get the dog to look at the camera.... even if he does look a bit mournful.

Seem to almost always end up doing a composite line-up construction for some reason. (Method B of getting a simultaneous smile from everyone & all looking the right way.)
