A family affair. My husband and three boys came along. Here is the first location with my very helpful subject.
I had to finish with the squashy face of W fallen asleep on the couch. Everyone loves a squashy baby face right?
An ode to Australian Bushranger heritage??
I often have trouble discarding colour information, but I thought this image worked better in black and white.
It seems as I go along I have found that I have developed a style of my own! I seem to love taking portrait photos where there is an intense gaze between the camera and the subject. I feel like the bond gives a glimpse of an unspoken conversation that I want the viewer to read like a book. I doubt whether the majority of people viewing the photo would have that conversation, but it is a conscious choice that I have found I am making repeatedly when I choose which images to share.
So there you are. I have my first style. Exciting.
