Meet James

March 2008

My iTunes: Fly Away by Lenny Kravitz

This wasn't a planned shot. I turned my camera away from the basketball game on Saturday when I noticed some of the kids playing outside the gym. I did already mention in an earlier post that is was BEAUTIFUL here on Saturday. I wandered out and tried to get a few shots without freaking the kids out too much. Luckily they somewhat know me as "that" woman...the woman with the black thing attached to her face!

James is a friend of my niece Katherine. I think she may even call him "my James"....so cute.

Anyhow, I liked this shot a lot.

Good shot, especially considering you weren't looking for it. Now, where's that signature on the model release form?

You might consider carrying some around with you if you're going to continue including people in your photos. I'm not sure exactly when they are and are not required, and I do not claim to be an expert or qualified to tell you anything.

But, I've heard things. So, just throwing it out there.

Thanks Mark. I do know his parents and got their permission before posting. :)

I like this shot a lot, too, Anna. Sometimes, the best pictures are the ones that aren't planned, when we shoot with our gut and let our instincts lead.

It's why I carry my big black thing everywhere with me, too, because you never know when magic will happen.

I can't get over the ethereal softness of your shots. Fantastic and adorable.

I'm sure you have all seen this: http://www.krages.com/phoright.htm

What a great picture Anna, you certainly caught his vision in this shot.

Sounds like a good title for a sit com about a photographer in Atlanta, "That Woman". She'd be like the character Wilson on Home Improvement. You'd never see her full face. It's always partially covered by a camera (instead of Wilson's fence). Yeah, that's it - call CBS!

Anna said...

"My James" sounds kind of like Ellie and Malachi. Cute!

Love John Roberts comment. What a terrific story line. It could become part of your portfolio logo.
Fantastic portrait. Those eyes!!!

Anna said...

John....you wanna be my agent? :) That's a great idea for a show! I am still laughing!

What a stunningly beautiful shot.

JAM said...

Excellent! What a cutie.

You'll have to track his Mother down and email this to her. I thought it was from a paid photo shoot, it looks that perfect.
