Of people and pictures

I’ve always photographed people…..that’s how we all start isn’t it?Trying to capture memories of vacations and occasions, filled with an effort to capture moments of joy, pleasure and indulgence. What a photo enthusiast quickly learns is how bad those pictures are and just how much it lets you down on your expectations. Yes, we all have those pictures where it was dark and the flash went off and all we have is some people with their eyes closed, some with “vampirish” red eyes. Then there are those pictures taken with the sun behind us giving the silhouette a ghostly glow while completely darkening the person. But, we never stop photographing people. Even if you are photographing one of the seven wonders, you have got to put a person in the picture. I hate to make people pose, i truly do. I prefer to capture them while they are almost unaware. If you must pose let it be for a group photo or portrait or some experiment, it is far more fun this way! I had enough fodder for the last two weeks on this topic……here are some of my ….errr….experiments!
