Boy’s Life

“Beth I hear you callin’/ But I can’t come home tonight.
Me and the boys are playin’,/ And we just can’t find the sound.”

~ Beth by Kiss

Some portrait fun this past weekend while the girls were away.

Shooting children is as challenging as shooting animals, and as dangerous as searching for trip wires. It can either go famously, all all blow up in your face.

There may be laughter. There may be a body in a crying heap.

And that’s just the photographer.

This shoot, though, went very well. The fact that it lasted less than 5 minutes had a something to do with with it. Between set up and break down, we were lickety split.

Part of that is that I knew the room very well. I always love the light in this front room of our, so that wasn’t my variable. It was the two little giggly masses of boyhood that I was working with.

From a technical perspective, pretty simple: f/4 at 1/10s, ISO 250, my 24-105mm lens at 32mm, EV pushed +2. I wanted to blow out the windows a little, did minimal post processing.

Like I said, the true starts here were Chase and Matt. They were in a good mood (maybe it was right after lunch) with a promise of Swal Dairy ice cream in their future. They did the required costume changes, looked at the camera, smiled, and were they’re goofy, playful selves.

But when they had to bring the Jersey Muscle, they did.

Memories. That’s what we do here.
