Tell a Story

I called this image, "Good Morning!"

It tells a story of waking up, being happy to find a loved one close at hand. There is a sensual tone to the photograph although it is very discreet.

The connection with the subject must be there for this to happen. Both subject and photographer must be comfortable in each other's presence.

Gotta say it again!

It's all in the eye connection!

Eyes must look down the lens as if it's a mirror in their room. This "private" connection with the soul is what makes the connection that draws in the viewer and never lets go.

As the photographer, you must focus on the eyes. Watch out for shadows that may hide their brilliance.

Be Prepared

Today was a snow surprise to everyone - plow operators, weathermen, et al!
 This is during the storm on my back porch. I used a light meter to get the proper reading for light vs. snow.
I am ready fro spring to arrive, but always ready to grab my camera!

Timing

Still trying to learn again how to shoot with a point and shoot.
Watch out for Noise and focus fuzziness with one.
Anticipation is improving to get the height of action with the Lift and Drop of Les Supemes, Canadian Sr. Silver Medalists at Synchro Nationals. Gosh I miss my good camera!
