Playing With Light

February 05, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Each year I photograph my sons around their birthdates. I send out updated photos of my guys in their thank you notes. Because #2's birthday is so close to Christmas, it usually takes me a while to recover from the celebrating frenzy before I remember that I need to get him in front of the camera. A couple of weeks ago, he and I were going on a date to the Michigan Theater. It was already dark outside, and I had him come to the studio so I could snap him up. He thought this was weird. If you've been following me for a while, you know that I am an available-light-photographer. 

For 2017 I made a New Year's resolution to learn more, to take different pictures, to expand my horizons. So, in the dark, I took these photos of my son. I absolutely loved playing with light, turning a flash on, using a strobe and some base lights... The results were so much fun. Because my photo shoot had more set up work involved, I gave my son props to help him wait out my different experimentations. I need to take advantage of the early darkness yet this winter- I have lots of time to experiment without having to wait up past my bedtime! :)
