It is Friday and this isn’t going to be a post about Deaf Children Australia. I have decided that for the time being, that they will either be every second week or once a month. I need to talk to them and see where they want to go. I did get some wonderful suggestions last week, but I need to process them and work out what I am going to do.
So for today I thought I would take another look at the images I took of Briony and Ilia. I tend to pick a few out and process those and forget about the rest. I learned with the shoot from Lara that often there can be more there and I just have to have the imagination to find them, then process them. I found three more to work on and will share them with you today.
I took quite a few of these, but initially I didn’t want to do anything with them as the shirt was quite blown out, so I played around with it and got it to a stage where it looked a lot better. The way he is lying on the bench seems so relaxing.
I didn’t like the way she was dressed and I was disappointed with many of the shots that I got of the two of them. He was so light with his white shirt and she was so dark with her black clothes. I hadn’t really considered taking photos of them together when we went out this day. It was a wonderful surprise to see how well they photograph together.
I am going to be photographing them tomorrow again. I have a big list of poses that I want to get, and, of course, will make sure they are dressed better, well more suited with one another.
Here she is, my daughter, hamming it up in front of a sunset, which didn’t come out as well as I had hoped. I showed this to her and she was confused, she couldn’t work out where it had come from. The dress and the fabric is all composited together. I quite enjoy that. Though one problem I had was that it didn’t look real where it hit the ground, so I had to work on making shadows and allowing grass in front.
I hope you aren’t too disappointed with the post today. A full weekend ahead. Lots of photos I hope, aren’t they the best kinds?
