We are starting to build momentum with our portrait project...  
Here is my good friend of more than 20 years, Alex. I love that I can talk with Alex about anything - from the crude to the very personal - I can't actually think of a topic that would be off limits :) We've gone from calling him "Dr. Alex" (he's a veterinarian) to "uncle Alex" when Sophia came along.

Personal Portrait Project

I've been planning this project for some time now but it took a visit from Kate's cousin Claire to really get things started. Claire lives in Australia and unfortunately we don't get to see her very often so her visit with us over the past week seemed like a perfect opportunity. We explained what we were up to and she enthusiastically agreed to be our first subject.  
"A man is known by the company he keeps."  
Over the next 6 months, I plan to take portraits of friends and family. These images will be a bit more simple, reflective and contemplative than I usually do. At the end I will design a coffee table book with a short bio for each of our subjects. This will be something to be enjoyed now and my hope is that it will become a treasure for my daughter Sophia someday.  
For more portraits from our session with Claire visit our Facebook Page.

Window-Light Photo Tip

When you're inside and want to take a picture of someone, ask them to stand facing a window. Depending on your camera and how close you want to crop, your subject should be about 2-3 meters away from the light source  and the bigger the window, the better. Then stand with your back to the window and face your subject. Avoid direct sun, and by the way, this technique doesn't work when it's dark outside :) Another variation is to use the front door of your home. Open the front door and have your subject stand or sit just inside facing the doorway. You then step outside, shooting your subject through the open door.
...and the resulting image.
One more from the same series. Notice the sparkle in Sophia's eyes?
This is actually a reflection of the light source and is called a "catch light". In this case you can see the sky through the open door.
