I Used to be This Big.

scotty-1977001

I’m working on some other new things to share soon, so here’s something from the archives.
What’s funny is that I don’t really remember this time in my life. What’s weird is that, to my eye, I look a whole lot like this.

What to Do…

When my daughter was born my wife told me that failing all else, I’d always have a willing model.
I took that to heart over the weekend and during a walk that culminated in hang time for us at the playground, I snapped a few of my daughter. She loves to have her picture taken, always saying after the shutter-click, “I wanna see!”

I was playing around with some post processing ’cause I came across this blog the other day. I like the overall tone of some of his recent stuff and think I might wanna try later.

Plumbing, Redux.

Truthfully, I have a lot of stuff in a queue to put up, but I’m a little behind on post-process. Moreover, I have a slew of interesting shoots coming up, not all of which I’m the lead photog for (read: I get to assist!).

In the meantime, I figured I’d share this image:

being the music

It’s interesting ’cause it’s the same little girl as in this image but she’s almost two years older. I’m thinking that it might be fun to make her wear these at intervals from now until I’m too feeble to hold a camera, just so she’ll have a history of herself. Interestingly, I only caught two frames of her looking like this before she was “all done.” I suppose I was right about how hard it would be to get those headphones on her.

All that aside, I really like this image, but I either wish for more cars in the background, or fewer. My one little Honda back there looks conspicuous to me. I assuage my guilt by saying that it’s just a snapshot and it’s okay that it’s not perfectly composed. Still, she’s got quite the look here, doesn’t she?

Zoe.

I was playing with the kids – well, mostly Zoe – at the playground and snapped off a few images for fun. I was playing with the flare aspect again. I’m not sure I have it down yet, but I am getting the hang of it.

Flare intrigues me for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that I’m exploring the idea of good photos that aren’t “perfect.” In addition to my personal musings, I came across this blog post about how to get images noticed on flickr. While I’m pretty sure this image won’t matter to anyone, it’s still interesting to consider.

When I brought this up on the computer to futz with, I was reminded a little of Andrew Wyeth’s “Christina’s World.”

Digital Tomfoolery.

This is not a real photograph.
I mean, it’s real in the sense I used a camera to make it – a film camera, at that – and it’s a real scene, but it is not a Polaroid photograph. It’s a fake. I used an application that you can download online for free (whether you have a Mac or a PC). It’s called The Poladroid Project and it turns jpegs into polaroid-looking photographs. There’s even a flickr group where folks put their experiments up.

While I usually avoid this kind of post-process, I like this one. I think that digital treatments have their place in photography and if used sparingly, they can create some really cool stuff.

For what it’s worth, the unadulterated scan of this negative lives here.

“I Pretty, Daddy.”

She really said that to me once. I kinda think not-even-two year olds ought not be so self-aware. What do I know though?

Oh, and that snazzy headband? Here.

Imagine.

I have a lot of film to scan and not a lot of time.
I found this image while I was updating the family blog with pictures of my son. This kinda shows how unstoppable my daughter is. I hope she stays that way — at least until she brings home some doofy ruffian of whom I don’t approve (grin).
