The more I get behind the camera the more I enjoy it, even though it does FREAK me out because my eyes are just not as reliable as they used to be. Such a bother at a time in your life when you suddenly discover that you want to learn how to take better photographs! Damn glasses just get in the way.
I had fun today down at the lake with my daughter and her friend…a different friend this time.
We decided to get all experimental…even a bit arty farty.
Got some strange looks from people as we cavorted around in the water fully clothed, with a bridal veil and a chair.
This is my favourite picture of the day. (My daughter edited the pictures.)
My daughter Shai. Funny how she picked this pose, because it’s SO “her”….
This image says to me….”Sensitivity and introspection.”
It’s a little bit lonely too isn’t it?
But then on the other hand here she is striking a totally different pose.
Goes to show we all have different facets.
And her friend, Louise…as soon as she got on the chair this was her chosen pose.
I love the determination in this.
Amazing how our personalities shine through with our body language.
Here is Shai looking decidedly sultry in the water…
She wanted me to do”dramatic eyes” with the makeup, but that wasn’t the look I was going for for a water photoshoot….so she did it anyway by adjusting the eyes in photoshop.
I love this photo of Louise because it has a slightly soft focus (ahem…failing eyes do come in handy sometimes.)
It reminds me of an almost vintage feel.
I just love the wind in her hair effect too.
This one of course because of the lovely swirly veil in the water and the way her body seems to flow gracefully on…
And my daughters eyes in this one, as well as the swirl of her hair.
And this one, just because…. It’s hard, really hard to get two people to look the same direction in a photo, have the same expressions…. “work together”
You know…just a simple thing like body position, tilt of the face can screw the vibe up and make them seem separate instead of TOGETHER in the scene.
Anyway, I liked this one. 🙂
