In our home, photography is a fact of life. Every member of the family has been a photographic subject or the one behind the lens at one time or another, and for me that adds up to a lot of portraits of family and friends in my body of work. While I have taken my fair share of digital portraits, the portraits in film are the ones I love best, perhaps because the results of black and white digital conversion still cannot compare to the range of tonality one gets with black and white film types. I happen to love black and white portraits.
The following photo, The Naturual, shows my youngest son’s love for my favorite Diana camera. Each Diana camera is different. His favorite camera always seems to be what my favorite is at the time.
Sometimes the playmates of my children find their way into the frames as well…
Here is an angel among us. Look at the hearts in his eyes.
It’s nice to remember the longer days during these, the darkest, coldest, shortest days of the year.
More memories from the neighborhood…
My lovely daughter…
My youngest son with my oldest son’s girlfriend… My youngest has the brightest eyes you’ll ever see.
And finally a portrait of the artist herself… a very old portrait! It was taken with my late grandfather’s old Pentax.
