“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
The other day I was celebrating my birthday and I decided to do a little give away. Normally, and since last year only, I get paid for photoshoots as we agree a number. This time everybody could pay what they felt like! Wendy was the first one who responded.. We went out on a sunny day with her two kids, who did not know me at all.
We brought dresses, superman capes and enough to play with. After ten minutes the kids literally took my hand, played with me and were more and more curious on what I was doing. I showed them how the camera worked, what it looked like and what I do before we started and this really helped. They felt included, important and most visible; playfull and relaxed.
I used a 50 MM lens and my Nikon 24 – 70 lens. I love the results and am very proud of the progress I am making!
