i'm learning

last week i met this kid at parker's lake for a stroll and a pose
he's just got the sweetest face.

the week before i was at the depot with this lovely young thing.
there are so many ways to go with an edit...

i just love those jumping photos, so i asked her to go for it
so fun, right?
and here's what jb did when i suggested he jump off the bench.  awesome smile.
and i love that he just jumped right down, ack!  it cracks me up...only his hand in focus.  i'm learning how important it is to give thorough instructions.

here he is when i was getting stung by bees. i am sure his ma and dad will get this framed, life-size in their living room.  this area was blocked off with yellow caution tape.  we couldn't see any reason why, until i sat down on the bench.  three bees caught me, at least one got jimmy on the noggin'.

it takes me a little bit of warm up time to get the feel of my camera.  i realized it was very difficult for me to arrange a meeting at the right time of day.  if i get another chance to do more portraits, i'll be sure to choose a softer light.  in fact, i invited this feller to meet me in the evening tomorrow for a minute & a few close-ups.  wish me luck!


wishing you a happy friday.
