A Hand to The Netherlands

Professional photographers have their pictures stolen at an alarming rate. And it’s virtually impossible to protect any photographs that are posted online.  So I’m surprised when someone asks permission to use one of my images. But it does happen – this is the third time a company from Europe has asked for a photograph of mine.

Some years ago I took photos for a hand model. A design firm in The Netherlands, Clever Franke, found my image online and asked if they could use it in their own marketing. We agreed on a price for a license fee to use the image and the firm paid me through PayPal.

A big “hand” of thanks to Clever Franke for their honesty! My original image appears below.

Giving Thanks for BFFs

neca-449-1100px-edit

Recently, I had the pleasure of taking headshots at a nearby high school. I photographed a lot of people over 3 days – 45 students as well as 12 teachers and staff.  Please click on the image to see it LARGER and clearer – on your phone, tablet or computer.

These two girls came in and asked if I would shoot them together. They were laughing and enjoying themselves – clearly BFFs. (If you’re as old as me – you may need a translation – could be Best Friends Forever or Best Female Friends.)

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I’m thankful for many things.  One is the opportunity to photograph young people that are full of life and promise. Another is  – in a world that is supposedly becoming more fragmented and polarized – to see these two beautiful young women enjoying their deep friendship. They are good role models for us all.

Recently, I had a fun shoot with an extended family – about 10 people altogether. These two terrific kids were part of that family. By the way, be sure to click on each image to see it LARGER and clearer on your screen – whether it’s a computer, a tablet or a phone.

Kids can be a challenge to photograph – sometimes you have to shoot quickly, or they’ll lose interest and it’s awfully tough to get good pictures. (These two were very patient, however!) But what I find makes shooting kids easy is  that they are not nearly as self-conscious as adults. When I asked this girl to get close with her brother and put her hand on his shoulder there was no hesitation – she just did it.

They hung in with me when I suggested different poses or made some feeble joke to get a natural smile.  These were fabulous kids to shoot for so many reasons.

I made both color and black & white versions of the pictures for the  family. They chose only black and white versions for their prints, which certainly provides a classic, timeless quality. I’m drawn a bit more to the color versions of these particular photographs, but faithful readers know me to be a color guy through and through. Below you’ll see the black and white version of the first image. Which do you like best? I’d love to hear from you!
