"What tomorrow holds"

I have my parents to blame...

Growing up almost every week we were lined up infront of a camera,

"son stay still", followed by click, click, click, or "go to your room, until you learn how to behave!"

For at the last second, when pops was just about to snap, i would pull a funny face and spoil the whole show.

Never-the-less, we had and still have thousands of pictures of childhood memories.

And, thus began my fascination with capturing emotions... the "soul" of  good people photography.

For this wonderful gift, thank you God for the wonderful parents you have given me.

If you ask me, is there a formulae, I don't really know, my days as an artist, maybe have trained my eyes, or maybe the years of studying human beings on comutter buses and trains has helped me read situations better, could it be passion? these days ive learnt to take pictures even without a camera...now thats deep ;-)

But I think what really pushes me to the next snap and the next and the next...

is, what tomorrow holds.

For tomorrow, my friends holds... much more than yeterday and today combined!

Welcome to skeetown!

Techincal note:

I used and mostly use a flash, it is used off camera, usually 45 degrees to my camera, although this is not a rule of thumb! I believe used properly flash can complement greatly for this reason i don't bounce flashguns off ceilings or fire a flash from on the camera, as this produces a very un-natural light effect.

I love the composition, especially how the other three people are looking at the boy. I'm wondering what he's looking at...

Na....I wouldn't have changed the white balance either, but some times I do. It just depends on the shot. This adds to the warmth of the entire experience being felt here with the warm tones. But the entire picture tells such a warm story. It's great. Now there Mr. Skee.....do you know how much I enjoyed your comments? Makes me think of my own situation and oh boy....do your words ring true. Thanks for speaking from the heart. smile Oh ya also....I only use an off camera flash and bouncing is a no no for me too!
