One more photo from session with Thomas and Emmily

This is one more photo from the same session with Thomas and Emmily:

Thomas and Emily

This picture was planned, based on several advertisement photos. It’s not a copy of any specific picture, but I had a particular image in my mind which I tried to create. I’ve got what I wanted and I like the result. Even though the concept might be arguable with sunglasses shown in the darkness 🙂


Enjoying my new lens

I am still enjoying my new lens (Canon EF 85mm f1.8 if you don’t remember) 🙂

Another example of a portrait. This time no studio – just sitting in a cafe, one flash bounced from the ceiling, f1.8:
confidence

Christmas markets are now opened everywhere around. I visited one in Leuven on Friday. My new lens allows to take pictures at low light handheld with reasonable ISO. This one was taken with f1.8 and ISO250 (with shutter speed of 1/160th).

Photo of my younger son

My younger son

Just a photo of my younger son made a few months ago. I was browsing un-processed RAW files when noticed this one…


Blond girl from an uncomon angle

I took this photo 1.5 years ago. Something attracts me in this picture, and I am not sure what. Perhaps the angle that is not so common, or may be something else…
You can see here two versions of the same picture (click to enlarge):
Blond girl above photographer - original Blond girl above photographer - re-edited
The one of the left is the original edit I made 1.5 years ago. The one on the right was re-worked recently. Not only I decided that it will work better after the turn, but I made the color warmer and used some dodging and burning. I tried not to overdo with the editing (which is my habit with most of my photos). I like the new version better than the original one – and what about you?
