One of my first successful self portraits... This place we went to is a field of yellow flowers ... but not during the winter - still need to go back and take some pictures there.
Notice I only had 1 kid that I had to get smile... and we haven't done a "self portrait" style since our son has gotten older... WAY too hard! Now for some real inspiration....
My big inspiration is my brother. He took this while he was taking a black and white film developing class - yes they still have those. It's my absolute FAVORITE picture! When I look at it, I am reminded how much I still have to learn, and how much I miss the man who taught me most of what I do know! Thank you Blake for setting me on fire as a photographer!
I keep forgetting to check your photo blog. I need to put a link on my blog. Anyway, I love the backlighting in the close-up of Sydney.ReplyDelete
I took a few b/w darkroom classes back in the day. It is a very challenging medium to work with--your brother's shot is precious. I'll take digital any day, however it takes a lot of work too!
