I am in the process of building a new portfolio. I am creating the pictures I see in my head. UMMM...let me explain. There is a woman that lives very close to me. I see her all the time and think to myself, "she's really beautiful I should ask to take her picture...", SO GUESS WHAT I DID! I asked to take her picture, and she said yes! She is a very beautiful person inside and out, and she has a really cool house. :)
I love when people let me take the pictures I see in my head...
I have been practicing my on-location lighting by taking my camera with me EVERYWHERE. I have been using more natural light, and of course my flash & ttl cord (my favorite!) So I went downtown to take a picture of my son, in front of some of my art that is currently displayed downtown Boston. (at 4 Ave De Lafayette)
I decided to stop a few people and ask them to take pictures. I figured I could make a game of it and see how many people would say yes if I said, "Excuse me are you in a rush? Can I take your picture?" and to my surprise alot of people said yes, more than I expected. Here are a few. (these photos were all taken in less than 60 seconds, literally!)
My son is already 5 months old. He is growing so fast. He loves to read bright colorful books and laugh. I decided to take some photos of him while he was watching his favorite monster, Elmo. He has taught me to be more patient. That it's ok to just sit and wait for the picture that I want. To take more risks with light, and most of all to play and LAUGH EVERYDAY!
I spent the day with my god daughter. Already 9 months, she is growing fast and getting smarter everyday. She can say "da-da" and "ma-ma", and has already used the potty! During the day we went to her I spent the day with my god daughter. Already 9 months, she is growing fast and getting smarter everyday. She can say "da-da" and "ma-ma", and has already used the potty! During the day we went to her appointment, out to lunch, then the salon.
I decided to bring my camera and capture some images of our day. She laughed with my son, and they spoke in baby talk. It was nice to watch two babies interacting with the world.
So it's the beginning of a new year. New goals to accomplish, new dreams to reach. I learned a lot about myself in 2009. Graduating from college, becoming a mother, and starting a business. Tora Jones Photography .... "Impossible Is Nothing"... lets see what 2010 brings! oxox Tora Jones
