Love in a hopeless place...

Short Blah-Blah:

Photo shoot with my kids.

> Right-Click< and open in a new tab and play song in background

> Wait as there is 58 seconds of intro, but i like it

> As the song is starting click here to view on black...

 

Long Blah-Blah:

This photo is inspired by *Manda's 6/52 into the great white open. The red and location motivated me and the kids. Well, more the second time, as the first it was bloody cold!

 

Initially I was going to call this photo "Love & Freedom" because right now my kids are at the stage where he wants to be cuddled, and she wants to do stuff involving movement (and not photographed). However this song title fits too. DD likes it, he tolerates it, and I thought it fit nicely. I know, I know, park your understanding of the true sense and meaning of the song and look at it more from my daughter's innocent perspective please...

 

So, the first time we tried this, two things happened, one, super cold (especially out on the open ice) cloud cover moved in, and secondly, I forgot my camera. :/ This time I prepped it all, checked the weather channel, placed all the props, camera, and used suncalc website to pick a time. You would think I would practice what I preach at work about plan your work and work your plan. *sigh*

 

I did have my flash setup on camera right low pointing up to fill in the dark spaces, along with my cheapo wireless trigger but I had forgotten to turn on the receiver. So in this shot it didnt fire, but I like it anyway.

 

I will be printing this one for their grandmother who is currently wintering in Flo Rida...as DD would say. Hope she likes it (The mother in-law, not the daughter..as the latter is not keen on being taken).

 

I will post more of this shoot over the next few days...
