Blast Back Saturday

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!

  1. 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.

    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!
