shy

I have a child who’s shy. And camera shy too. I don’t mind. I don’t care. As long as he lets me take pictures like the ones below.

Aga - przepięknie

MonikaMM - Lovely – wonderful – precious

admin - Dziękuję 🙂

something different

I love drizzle, fog, rain, haze. Well as long as I’m staying dry and cozy at home or …going on a photo adventure. And as much as I hate Polish weather, being as meteoropathic as I am that’s quite understandable,  I must admit I love how it photographs. I’m partial to the mood it creates. All of a sudden the landscape brings a strong feeling of nostalgia, sad but warm with no regrets. I’ll take a gloomy day over there at any time.

inspired

by dance and movement. I’m in awe when I see people dance, move in a controlled way that only dancers (and ninjas) can. All muscles in full rein, body parts easily cooperating with other body parts unlike mine, untrained and awkward. I love to see those moments in between poses, fleeting and hard to see unless with help of a fast shutter speed.
So whenever I have a chance to photograph movement I’ll jump at the opportunity.
And for me it’s a great prescription for a successful session with boys – they won’t sit still, or pose – well, most won’t- but are very eager to show off their skills. Very exciting, and exhausting for everybody involved.
So when my son asked me to photograph his usually shy self I was ecstatic. No, he is not a dancer, or ninja – as much as he would love to be one, but he is one hyperactive boy who won’t sit still for a second. Together we were trying to capture magic and… we did. For real. Look at the picture below and say it isn’t true. I’m still amazed I took it.

So here is motion. Unconventionally still. Boy’s edition.

more pictures to follow in the next post.
