Fun with the kids

15th August 2011

It's been a pretty busy period with weddings much so that my kids had realized that they weren't the subject of my cameras attention for a while...and they missed that. So we decided to take a few fun shots recently and these are the results.

The first shot is "all the boys" (Lauren was staying with her nanny when we took this). It's similar to the start of the old American comedy/sitcom "The Brady Bunch".

The second image is a composite (made up of three different images). Firstly, Lauren was put sitting on a chair and the image was taken from a low point of view to give some realism to the fact that we wanted to pretend that she was floating off into the air above us. Second and thirdly, I held Liam and Colin up in the air (they were grasping a sweeping brush) and remotely triggered the camera via the timer. The fact that their legs were dangling made the image look a bit more authentic. Finally, the image was shot against a white background which I replaced with a dramatic sky. The kids love the end result even though they don't always understand what I'm doing when i'm taking the images!
