A Cool Day at the Park

I decided to start my study of possible portrait locations with my husband as my first posing subject. I don’t consider the baby one since I have to capture her in a purely photojournalistic style. She doesn’t pose. She just does what she does, and I’m on my own as far as making the picture happen. She’s a baby. Not a model. I’m happy with that.

So far we’ve been focusing my area of study at a park. There is a lot at that park, and there are many spots where I could put someone for pictures. I think I’ve barely scratched the surface of it, and I’m looking forward to going back to continue my study of it as well as trying out other locations.

We started off by running a couple of errands and eating lunch. Then I just let my husband play his guitar while I took his pictures. Every once and a while, I’d ask him to move to a new spot. Just twice I asked him to turn a certain way or move his foot, but I figured I’d mostly let him pose naturally the way he would while playing.

I really enjoyed myself, and it put me in a good mood. We wouldn’t be able to do something like that most days since at least one person would have to be watching Cady, but she was hanging out with my parents. Plus it was another not so crowded day because of the weather. Cold, cloudy days are not so popular there, but I like them for taking pictures.








For those that wonder where Cady got the red in her hair, it’s from Tim’s beard! It’s like a calico cat. I told him it represents his past, present, and future hair colors (red, brown, white).
