A few portraits
Posted By: justuspr, 04-25-2007, 11:36 AM

Well I haven't posted any photo's for a couple weeks, so here are four portraits of my kids I took a couple weeks back.

First one of Lucas:

One of Caius:

Another of Caius:

Another of Lucas: (My wifes favorite of the bunch, he's reaching up to her)

All were taken with my Quantaray 70-300. C&C welcome, portraiture is not my forte, but is something I'm trying to work on an improve.

Thanks for looking.

What cute shots!
great poses, but not "over posed" if that makes any sense.

thanks for sharing these

Hi Justus, I agree with your wife, best of the bunch and worthy of a spot on the wall. Excellent shot. On the first one of Lucas, there is a bright light source on the left side by his head, it's a bit distracting (to me anyway) and I think it gives a bit of a 'washed out' almost overexposed feel to the photo. He has such a beautiful fair complexion that it kinda gets lost against a really light background. Caius, on the other hand is a bit darker and he not only handles the white flowered backgound but it enhances his complexion.

NaCl(just my five cents and worth all of that)H2O

Thanks for the replies.

Slipchuck, I do get what you mean, there were some big rocks under these trees and they were playing on them, so every once in a while I would just say smile and snap the shot.

I agree with your comments salty 4 is my favorite of Lucas, and 2 my favorite of Caius they will be going up on the wall soon, but interestingly enough I submitted all 4 to the PPG and 1,3 were the two that they accepted. Oh well to each their own, I'm just glad they accepted some.
