A Moment of Silence.

One of the coolest things that a camera can do is lie about the instant it captures.
Take this image, for example. They look like they’re calm and like they’ve been sitting there for a long time, contemplating whatever it is that lives in that tank (it’s a family of river otters, but that’s beside the point).
Only some of that’s true. Right after this, they were clambering to get down. Just before this, they were hooting and laughing at the antics of the otters.
This moment of silence was precious more than a millisecond.
And that’s why it’s beautiful.

The Nest Egg.

My wife bought this years before we had children and put it in different places around the house. I was flipping through flickr and saw something similar (I think the little girl was holding just eggs) and figured I’d make my daughter an accomplice again.

Straight Outta the Camera.

I think that most people just dump the pictures in their point-and-shoot digital cameras onto the web or at the photo lab so that they see everything that they’ve shot. There’s no filter. There’s no worry that, “Maybe these aren’t my best work…” or, “I should really crop this thing out…” or, “This would look so much better as a square…”

Well, here’s one of mine. This was at my son’s impromptu birthday party because the snow made it so no relatives could visit.

Right after I shot it I thought, this is gonna be hilarious. Then I showed it to her parents. They laughed too. It’s the kind of picture they can trot out when her friends come over when she’s 16. It’s perfect slide show fodder for the rehearsal dinner at her wedding.

I didn’t do anything to it despite thinking there must be something it needs. I think that starkness makes it work.

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.
