Black & White Wednesday # 5



A couple of weekends ago we visited some friends, so I took the opportunity to get some shots of them and their beautiful children.
I don't shoot professionally (yet) but one of these live-long days, when I eventually manage to have enough money to buy me a DSLR, I would love to do this for a living.
Meanwhile I practice whenever I can and on whoever will let me.

Most of these were taken candidly, at a distance and/or without the 'victim' knowing I was shooting/about to shoot them ~ that's just my style! I'm not a 'smile & click' photographer, but I am very happy to capture a naturally occurring smile! However, faces to me are not all about the smiles ~ they are so much more than that.

I was very pleased with my shooting this particular weekend and my camera seemed to play well too (it's been a bit temperamental of late).

These are all converted to BW p-p in LR3 and I love each one!

Oh, Caroline --that first shot? Is. Just. AMAZING. What a wonderful capture!!

What camera do you use? I still have yet to get a DSLR, too... can't decide which/what to get! :)

Wow, gorgeous photos! This is proof that you don't need a DSLR just to get great photos. :)
