Gosh- trying to keep up with this boyo is hard at the best of times! So, you can imagine that I have been finding it increasingly difficult to take a good portrait of him. My idea of a good portrait include the following points: 1/ Sharp 2/ Interestingly composed 3/ A smile (or at least engaged with the camera.)
Sometimes I have to content myself with 2 out of the 3. It's a rare shoot that I can pin them all. A lot of it has to do with only having natural light to work with. I have to use a low shutter speed with a high speed child! And now he's walking he has ran from one side of the backdrop to the other before I can even press the shutter release!
In the top photo, I attempted to try something new with something old. I placed some large yellow pages on top of my green backdrop. As it turns out, the colours really didn't work well together, but I like the photo in black and white. I have added some other portraits I have snapped of Jack recently, including some bubble bursting fun, which, (honestly) might definitely involve some photshop trickery again. I was just trying to snazz up an otherwise plain shot. Don't be cross. K?
