This is a photo blog of self expression. All the images I post are self assignments driven by the need for more creativity in my life. This is my escape from the everyday shooting as a professional photographer.

Eyes of a Baby
Portraits of children and babies can be very rewarding. The openness and innocence that shows in their eyes is always worth capturing. In this image I positioned myself eye level with the baby. This meant that I had to sit on the floor. When photographing children it is important to get at a low level. At my own eye level I would have missed the eyes and gotten a picture mostly of the top of the child's head. I also used a 50mm lens set at f 1.4 so the background would be out of focus.
