Five and wild

Monica Calderin - Magical age for sure! Lovely portraits!

Diana

Diana. The perfect teenage mix of bubbly, happy, 100% positive personality. And yet, when you look into her eyes, there is this hidden longing. Pain of the world, which one can only feel at 16 years of age.

I decided to try my hand (and eye) in classic portraiture. This shoot was an exercise from a fantastic book by Chris Orwig “People Pictures”. The idea is to go back to basics. One camera, one lens (I used a 50mm) set to manual focusing and wide open (mine was at 1.4), one location, one model, 10 minutes. Aim at capturing the personality.

Water, brush and wooden deck

It’s what kids at Ingrid’s daycare do in the summer, day in and day out. Just give them a bucket full of water, couple of big brushes and tell them to paint the patio. Or sidewalk or whatever. Bam. Kids gone for an hour. And they can do it again tomorrow. After taking the pictures I just kicked back on a comfy chair with a book. Life was good. Until “Moooooom, Alvar is drinking water from the bucket!”.
