Portraits

Week 51, almost there, and I know already that I am going to miss it, our weekly sessions. This weeks photo’s are even more back to the basis of how I started this project. And that makes me curious what next week will bring, our final Project 50mm session. It’s gonna be a busy weekend with birhtdays and parties but I will find a moment to close this project on a good way.

Week 48, the end is near. And we all feel that it should not take much longer. I love the fact that all girls have supported me so far. So just four more weeks ladies and then we are done. This week I chose to go for a light setting and even used (a fill-in) flash where possible. Which reminds me that I am not doing that enough. You’ve got to love these challenges in the way they keep reminding you of your abilities and shortcomings. But for me it is still fun to do and I will make sure we will finish the whole year.

Photo Challenge, Project 50mm, week 45, just 7 more weeks and I finished a whole year. The first time ever I did a project (photo challenge) that would run for a year. And I have to admit it is hard. I was thinking last week about doing another year with my new 85mm but first of all, I know for sure my mom and my wife will say no to another year posing every single week. My daughter wouldn’t mind, because she is not used to a life without a camera.

This weeks shots, first Nicki while eating her salad, then Joan my wife while behind her laptop, figuring something out about my moms diet. And last but not least, my mom, trying to figure out her diet ;-). So for this weeks photo challenge, only shots without direct eye contact. And it seems to work. At least for me, normally I always try to capture the look, because I think this gives a photo more personality, but while looking at the photos below I now realize that this is not mandatory.

My mother’s 75th anniversary. Those who know our situation will realize how happy we are the we have reached this day. So we celebrated with the four of us at one of our favorite restaurants. To be honest I was not really focussing on shoot Project 50mm. So it is not a coherent triplet but I am happy with the final result. So without further ado….

Photo challenge Project 50mm is still going strong, but the end is near. Nine weeks to go and then the grand finale. A full year is a very long time but for me it still works as expected and I still try to better my photography with my 50mm prime lens. I have to admit it is getting a bigger challenge every week and especially now I have bought a new prime lens (85mm) which resides in my camera bag and make my fingers itch to start working with. But for now this weeks shots. Enjoy!

Week 40 already, time is passing quickly while having fun they say, and how true is that. Almost missed this week due to the fact my mom was not feeling vibrant enough to join us for the weekly dinner date that we have. But I still managed to get the shots for this week in. Back to my old style that I used to use for Project 50mm. I was a bit distracted by the new style that I have been using for my new Bearded Selfies project but I still manage to be true to the original style. So for me it is a good exercise and to make sure I can deal with different styles at the same time.

This weeks entries for project 50mm, Mom was shot at her house during daylight and the other girls were shot later that day in the kitchen after dinner. So again different light settings which causes a bit of a mismatch but for me that doesn’t bother me. Enjoy and please give me your comments and critique.

Man! I am on a roll, yet another ‘inspiration’ photo on youpic.com It seems without an end at the moment. And I am almost for sure there are more to come.I managed to get several decent shots from one session and I’m releasing them one by one to the different curator websites. And on top of that I’m still full with new ideas to shoot. So please keep coming back for more. For a preview see the gallery with the other portraits
