Edit: This was supposed to post on Tuesday, the first day of school, but I clicked the wrong date in the schedule.
I have always taken back to school photos: well not always, but ever since Danica started JK. After awhile I came to realize that those first day of school morning shots were problematic. Oh, I will still take those shots later this morning, but last year I decided to make a special effort in the last week of holidays.
Last year, we shot at our local Riverside Park, so we headed up to Blakeny conservation area one day last week. I just shoot in natural light, which isn't always the best, but one does what one can. I ended up with some decent shots although I guess none equivalent to studio shooting. Nevertheless, with a bit of post production work, I came up with a umber of keepers.
These were some of my faves although I could easily post as many others. You will perhaps see that I am drawn to the more environmental portrait. I try some more traditional tight shots, but they don't usually seem to appeal to me as much.
