This photo was taken Today Saturday 28th December just as the sun went down. My eldest daughter Julia and I were at Mothers Beach in Mornington, I just couldn’t resist taking yet another photo, but I’m glad I did. This photo is as shot no changes made.
Canon 450D and 18-200 IS Lens.

    This is great Patricia ! Well done :))

  • Thanks Caroline, I was out and about all day today, I’ve tried to take close up candid shots of strangers like you do, but It did not feel right. I was more comfortable with my little model.

    If you ever want to go out in the company of someone who does close-ips..give me a shout :)

  • I will shortly upload a close-up I’ve taken today of my little one,so please let me know what you think. My problem is, I feel like I would have to ask everyone I take close-ups of for permission and then again to be able to display these images on the internet once more. This is why I stick to the faces I know-LOL but I’d love to take you up on the offer still!!!!

    Excellent image, Patricia, with stunning, crisp silhouette, beautiful warm tones that contrast with the sea and great vertical format !!

    You just don’t get those natural expressions if you ask..
    But if someone notices, I always show them, and check with them it’s ok.
    A few days ago, an old man came up to me, and asked if I’d just taken his photo..I said ‘yes’, and showed him ..he replied ..‘stick it on your bedroom wall’ LOL

    I’ll take a look at it’re on my watchlist .. and re going out..just BM me long as I have a few days notice, I can sort things out with my agency no problems :)
