Seattle Portrait

My perfect models to help me test out new equipment. They assist too: holding the light stand, waiting patiently for my dialing around. And, at a moment’s notice. I know what I need to know when it comes to cameras and lighting. But it’s connecting with the one(s) before my lens that holds any weight in this photo world. People and the life humming within.

Seattle Family Portrait | Ballard

One may think, what’s the big deal? It’s a big deal. Baby and dog on camera. It’s a big deal. Did I say that?

I know I know, photojournalism etiquette – doesn’t matter explaining it, having gotten it or not gotten it; the job is to deliver. I’m explaining it anyway.

Mom and Dad were about the best ever with staying steady at my lens so I had only two to work. Ample clowning is required.

Love it when all parts align right on up….

she appeared to be homeless, appreciating a hot beverage on a cold day.

 

we acknowledged one another and she raised her glass as she allowed my camera – her gaze registering our connection.

 

i was photographing daily life for a newspaper those early years, but it was these more intimate encounters, a recognition of common humanity, if only brief, that fed me and affirmed my way.
