Today I had a family portrait session for the occasion of my client's mother's 70th jubilee. It was a splendid event - the birthday lady was very photogenic, and somehow everyone knew spontaneously where to stand and how to pose, which made my job so easy. I haven't been shooting professionally since Johnny was born, and I had lots of fun.
The flare in this shot is considered a defect when it comes to client proofing, but it's artistic enough for this blog. You know I am the queen of flare! I also love what was happening with the light in the second image - it was so bright and white it sort of spilled from below my lens.
