"Sorry, but you can't play with my camera!": JAA2

Here is another shot from yesterday. Don't worry my nephew is not sad.... he was just pouting cos he couldn't play with my camera this time around. He soon broke out with a smile.A very important aspect of my work has been about available light and how it falls on my subjects, as an artist I find this aspect of photography very exciting and it normally becomes a major aspect of my compositions.I try and succeed mostly without a flash of lately,and tend to do very little photoshop work unless I'm doing some digital artwork. Lately i've put my zooms away on lock-down so I shoot mostly with primes, 35,50 & 85. My fav being the 35mmf1.4L as used above. This write up wouldn't be complete without a qoute, would it now? lol.... here goes: If the photographer is interested in the people in front of his lens, and if he is compassionate, it's already a lot. The instrument is not the camera but the photographer. -Eve Arnold. People who dwell too much on there camera's and equipment usually tend to forget about the emotional capture which without leaves images that might be technically sound but are often life-less and plastic. The ability to notice cannot be bought but through careful observation is built overtime.

Nice shot Mr Skee
lovely shot, very expressive. By the way, I think you need your sensor cleaned unless you tell me those spots were part of the scene.
