The Men had been wanting to go get studio pictures for the last couple of years. Lucky for them my traveling studio just happens to be with me. They made great candidates for my first real photo shoot outside of my wife and kid.
It's hard to get cute pictures of children posing with adults. I've come to realize now to just have the adult play with their children so that the poses come out natural. And plus everyone is happy. Stinky was having a hard time posing in this photo shoot. Finally, my wife just started playing with her and the pictures turned out great.
Picture of my beautiful sister and niece. Sometimes it takes a picture to see the resemblance between two people. I realized that when taking pictures of children, you kind of have to be on their level. My niece would only smile and pose for pictures once I started to be silly with her. I made faces and ask her to make them back at me.. then I would say.. now smile!..
We spent Chinese new years at my parent's house. I love going there because I get a see and play with my nieces and nephews. This year, I decided to take my portable studio for some photo opt. It was hard enough trying to get one child to focus on the camera... let alone four! It was fun, but tiring. I love the picture of Kung Fu Master and my little stinky being silly on the set. My family had a great time at Ah-mah's house.
I like tinting and turning pictures black a white. I feel that it sometimes bring out the best in the picture. In this particular picture, the focus are the eyes. Which edit do you think bring out the eyes more.
We went to a birthday party this weekend. It was a very nice birthday party. I enjoyed watching the birthday boy lining up his new cars after inspecting each one for any defects. Watching him at work gets me excited to have my own in about 6 weeks. I took this opportunity to play with some dept of field photos.
