At this stage, it’s hard to gain and keep their attention.  I was able to captivate her…and she captivated me…for this brief moment.

This image of our newest grandchild was snapped on a recent, holiday weekend visit.

At this age, there’s not a lot of going on.  She’s just beginning to notice activity around her, just beginning to smile.

Girl In the Light

Girl, Child Portrait, Portrait, Toddler, Child, Young
Every now and then, the light works with you.  This young girls was holding the rail, advancing up some steps in a dimly lit area.  At this particular spot a gentle light fell across her face.

This is one of our grandchildren on a trip to the Children’s Museum. For the most part, light was a problem.  Museums are usually a challenge because they tend to have low lighting. It’s more of a challenge when you have a moving target.  In this particular shot, if you look close you’ll notice a “grainy” quality to the image…due to the low light conditions.

Strolling Through the Weeds

Boy, B&W, Monochrome, Portrait, Child,
A young boy, with a contemplative look, strolls through the tall grasses and weeds of an rural farm field.

I don’t often get to shoot photos of people, but when I do, it tends to be close friends or family. I just don’t have the time in my schedule to set up portrait sessions and the work of post processing. In this case, I got to spend some time with this three -year-old cutie – my grandson.  Just the two of us took a little walk in the country…with my camera, of course.

I wasn’t really intending to grab a shot of him.  We were just out for a stroll while Papa (what he calls me) looked for interesting things to photograph. We looked for birds and pretty leaves, talked about, walked over a dry creek bed. The perfect subject eluded us.

It was a tough time to shoot – mid day, under a bright sun.  I didn’t find much that caught my eye. So, naturally, on the walk back I turned the camera on the most interesting thing I could find.

Because of the overpowering contrast created by that bright sun, I thought the best treatment for this shot was to convert it to a monochrome image. I think it turned out well. In fact, one of my all time favorites. (Of course, that’s from the Grandpa in me as much as the artist.)

Attention Grabbing

Baby, Monochrome, Portrait, B&W, Infant, Child Portrait
Something’s captured her attention. This is our granddaughter at the age of wonder and development.  She’s learning more about the world around her and how to navigate it.  At this stage, she was just learning to sit up on her own.  I love the stabilizing grip she has on the afghan behind her.

Eye Contact

Boy, Portrait, Candid, Eyes, Toddler, Child
Caught a candid shot of my grandson, Sammy, while visiting a gift shop.  He just celebrated his 2nd birthday.  This photo was taken a couple of months earlier.

The unusual lighting for this image was provided by afternoon daylight coming in through a nearby store window.

Eyes of Wonder

Baby, Baby Portrait, Child Blue Eyes, Pretty
That look of innocence and wide-eyed wonder is priceless.  On a recent visit, I made sure to get on the floor with our granddaughter and my camera.

The camera is a proven baby attractant; an immediate point of interest for the short-lived attention span of youngsters.  The challenge is to move close enough to fill the frame with your subject and still keep out of reach. I usually spend a lot of time scooting backward and snapping a lot of photos in hopes of snagging one or two good shots.  This is one of my favorites.
