I spent a weekend on the Cape in June. I managed to take a lot of pictures and some of them came out half decent. The first picture is of Joe with a 40 of Miller High Life.
The next picture is of Susi. I like this picture for many reasons. I think the colors of his clothes mingle well with the colors of the house behind him, and it's a picture that I think shows you a bit of Susi's personality.
The next picture is of Joe and Corey. I think a couple of things work for this picture, mainly the sun subtly shining on them. Their faces also add something to the picture as well.
The next picture is of Crystal. I'm not sure if I would have liked it better if the shadows were less than they are, but I think the picture came out looking good with them there.
She looks about as happy as anyone could be when a picture is taken of them.
The next picture has no people in it, but I'm sure many a person can write you a 10 page paper of the joys and pains a ringer like that brings.
I started to take portrait pictures later on during the evening, and this one of Steve was my favorite.
I love everything about this picture. The intensity in his eyes, the nostril flare, and the shadow all work for me. I think he could use this for any professional picture he will ever need.
I think that is enough pictures for one post.
Now, some rambling...
I find myself getting extremely bored if I have to take pictures of a certain thing. How many different ways can I take a picture of a tree? I enjoyed taking pictures during that cape weekend. The only downside of taking pictures of a party type atmosphere is that people are constantly in motion and the lighting is continuously changing. I had 15-20 pictures that would have been great if I had to chance to hold the people in time and adjust the setting to get it right. I also have the strong desire for a new camera. Mo money Mo problems! My next post will be pictures I took of Julia. I was happy with how it went, I think I will have it posted by the end of this week.
