I absolutely love photography. I love looking at photography. I love reading about photography. And I love participating in photography. And despite the fact that I have never had any formal training in photography, I think some of the photographs I manage to take, well… are pretty darn good.
So when it comes to what I like to photograph, well, I like to photograph pretty much anything. Nature… Architecture… Portraits… People… I know that professional photographers tend to specialise in one area of photography only, but I’m not a professional. And I do this for fun. So why not!
However, that said I do have one favourite subject that I just absolutely love to photograph. You guessed it… Jesse!
Jesse is by far my favourite subject on earth to photograph. He is just so damn cute… he is forever changing as he grows up day by day… and I just love him to bits.
So when we were home last Sunday and I noticed these beautiful streams of lights coming through the blinds, I went and grabbed our camera just in case a good opportunity came up to take a few photos of Jesse as he played with his blocks.
As I lay on the floor, he spotted that I had the camera and walked straight for me, and stopped right in the streams of light that were filtering through the window. The camera was all set and ready to go, so I started firing of photos as he was standing next to me, inquisitively checking out what I was doing.
And while I was ducking and dodging him trying to grab hold of the camera, I ended up getting this photo of him.
It was completely by accident, and it was a completely spontaneous moment. But it ended with me taking what is now my favourite photo of Jesse that we have got!
It’s also made me realise how much I love portraiture. Maybe this is an area of photography that I need to dive into in a little more detail?
