Stop please .... January 10 2011, 12:57 AM
or was he playing till the end ?
I'm unable to do such shots of my son. He can't be serious when he's OK to be shot, or he's hiding himself. I'm certainly a bad portrait photographer ! Or a bad Dad !
Thanks Deniz! My son too will not sit still for a shot...>>> January 10 2011, 10:49 PM
if he can help it. He always has to make a silly faces, and I have to catch him between those. My daughter on the other hand is a natural.

Why goofy? He looks very good natured and gentle IMO.nt January 10 2011, 2:17 AM

The 12 year- old silliness comes out of him quite often.
In that case I wish I could be silly more often ! January 13 2011, 12:34 AM
Thanks! No. The background was a black and nonreflective sheet. >>> January 10 2011, 10:53 PM
I placed a diffused 5500k light to one side and shot in M mode until I go the shutter speed just right. I ended up with about 1/80 second at f2.8.

From a shadow perspective I like the first two. If I consider the eyes (color), then the last one - where the face shadows might be a little complicated for a portrait.
Portraits are difficult.
Thanks Casey! Your assessment is right on. My goofy son would not...>>> January 10 2011, 10:59 PM
sit still and moved into the shadow of the camera in that last one. I had the light high and to his left side. He was supposed to turn into the light but obviously he just could not. I love his eyes in that one but wish the shadow play was like the B&Ws.
He looks more like his mother on this one, January 10 2011, 7:53 AM
While I've been watching how your girl is looking more like you, There's something in your son's look and smile that remembers me of your wife. Good combination eh?
Yes Eduardo, you are exactly correct. Both have my skin color...>>> January 10 2011, 11:05 PM
and height, but my son has my wife's nose, eye shape and those big puffy cheeks. My daughter has my chin, cheeks forehead and eye shape. Good observations!
