Don’t forget YOUR family

Tue, Jun 21, 2011 I like to write about this at least once a year. I know as professional photographers we get bogged down in the daily shooting, busy, busy, busy. We get tired of lugging around the heavy gear. Sometimes we never want to pick up another camera again.
I’d like you to remember back to when you were just getting started. Remember when you would take a picture of anything and everything? I took so many photos of my kids when they were little that they started hating getting their picture taken (they still do to a point – ha ha).
It’s so important to document your own family’s lives. Remember to take your camera, from time to time, with you when you go out, and not just your iPhone. Take your camera to family events, 4th of July, Christmas, your cousin’s kids’ birthday party – whatever. If you’re tired of lugging around huge SLR gear, do what I did and get one of the small Micro 4/3′s cameras. I like the Olympus Pen’s with the Panasonic/Leica lenses.
My kids on the left and their cousins are on the right. We were just going downtown to do some shopping and get a donut, when we crossed the railroad tracks. I pulled out my Olympus with the Panasonic/Leica 45mm 2.8 (90mm on a full frame camera) and took a couple quick shots. I love this photo.
This was processed with out of camera BW + the Gentlemen’s Grunge from the Fundy Mentals action set.
