Have a break


Nikon D70 @ 10mm, 1/30 sec, f/4, ISO 200

It's the return of the super cool granny!

My gran doesn't mind me using her as my muse, so it's always a good chance to take some silly shots - this time it was her enjoying a cup of tea and a kit kat! I shot this one at 10mm, so her hand was practically touching the lens. I think these are the best kind of portraits - ones where you're capturing the person in their natural state, free from contrivance. The way we will remember them.

There's been some great shots on your site lately, John, but not many that really touched me personally - but this one is a classic. It captures a great moment and as my mate Jack always says (and I'm paraphrasing) - there's nothing more fascinating that seeing a person having their mind changed. By which I think he means: really candid photos of people work really well... :)

Looks like Gran was about to say something profound? Cute shot.

In a way a bit of a funny shot - like your choice to focus on the face and not the mug - not close to your cityscape shots - but no doubt a great shot!

Excellent shot, I love the expression on her face - like she's holding someone's attention elsewhere while she sneakily takes the biscuit.

Excellent use of WA for an informal portrait. This is great stuff. That lens is getting incredible reviews and the stuff you're producing from it are great testimonials. Regards, Brent

I think you are lucky in that your gran has a great character but I agree entirely with your thoughts concerning the capturing of the person as they are. Although I know her not I feel she must be great to ba around and obviously, thus make for a great subject.
