Learning Curve

If you've been watching recent posts, you know I've started a new photo project, this one focusing on school-age kids and teens. My good friend, fellow blogger, and amazing cake decorator volunteered her kids to model for the project, and we spent a morning at a nearby park doing the shoot. What we ended up doing was a kind of mixture of portraits and candids (my usual fare) with some special modeling shots of the two oldest at the end.

Before the shoot, I asked the two oldest to pick an activity that they like to do, and you can guess what the boy picked: karate! I have never shot a karate kick in motion before. Wow! It moves fast! I like some of the photos I got, but (provided my model is willing) I'll want to try again later. This Kids and Teens project will have me doing a lot more action and sports photography, and that's exactly why I'm doing it . . . to learn and expand my photography expertise.

The oldest girl picked an easier-to-shoot activity, drawing. And those photos turned out wonderfully! I'll do a separate post on those photos later. If you live in the Roswell or Alpharetta area and have school-age children or teens who would like to model for my Kids and Teens Photo Project, please email me. I need more models!

  1. Caleb would love to do more karate for you! These look great, Marchet! I'll email your blog to my brownie troop and see if any are interested for you.
