Wow. (Yeah, I KNOW - he lives here.) Dan and I went out last night to scout some photo shoot locations. We found really cool places and it was totally helpful to test out what I was thinking in my brain. Some worked really well (this one). Some weren't as good. Personally, I love this dark grey and it really hit me how the right subjects sort of just know when they're on the right background and the whole thing comes alive. Above: this is my personal favourite from last night... I love the grass/brick contrast.
You asked me how I choose a location for a photo shoot... Just like with design and painting it depends who I'm shooting - and what they're about. I like bold colours, personally, because they add something to a shot - but, I like textures, too. I like people to feel at home. I don't have much of a formula - I go by feel.
This is Crash's PARK FACE. It's a full-on boxer grin. Everyday at about 4pm - we head to the dog park for a life time-out and some fresh air. I thought this was a perfect 'backdrop' for Crash: his bestfriend Dan.
One more for the road... This is Isabella. I had my camera at the park and was testing myself a little - just to work on my quick focus. I need work on getting the focus where I want it when my subjects are moving. Isabella's always moving - so it was good practice.
Speakig of kids - what can you teach me about diapers? Cloth vs disposable? I've
been really feeling for the environment lately - but am not sure if I
can handle a full-on commitment to washing load and loads of crap
I NEED CLARIFICATION: Are you SERIOUS that the United States does NOT have Coffee Crisp? Aero? Mr.BIg? Eat-More? Can anyone confirm this? That's a tragedy right there if you ask me. No Coffee Crisp? Really? Run for the border folks. Run for the border. (It's nice here - and we have health care.) Just poking fun - we also have grizzly bears. ;)
