15/52

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Che: ...in the morning light.
Poet: ...in the afternoon light.

An autumn light diptych complete with blue and white stripes, one of my favourites from The 52 Project this year.

This week I loved the composition in these three portraits / I kept returning to Serendipity in Chaos' post - so much pretty in her photos / I think this shot of Amelie is destined for a frame on a wall / Dash, Nona and confetti - colourful, whimsical perfection / and a joyous cuddle (I can hear the giggles!).

Thank you so much for all your "get better soon" wishes. I'm on the mend now, taking it slowly and very much looking forward to two whole weeks of school holidays. Our plans? Lazy pyjama mornings, beach walks, a few movie sessions and a whole lot of not-much-at-all.

  10. What camera do you use Jodi? You're probably sick of answering that question.

    1. I do answer this questions quite a lot, yes. I shoot with a Panasonic GF1 with a 20mm 1.7 lens - all up it cost about $500 and it's a tiny, light, very practical little camera. I LOVE it! However, I'm working my way towards an upgrade (Canon 5D Mk111) - it will change the way I shoot though; simply because of the weight and size of it x

  26. I did a portrait photography class many years ago and I still remember the best tip from that class, the teacher told us great photography comes down to 'Light. Lens. Love' your portraits today say that to me. Isn't Autumn light just beautiful?! (as are Che and Poet :) x

    ReplyDelete

  36. what a clever idea for a little series - love the idea of morning and afternoon light and of course stripes for both :) the light is just so very Autumnal! simply stunning.

    btw just wanted to share something I have been doing - each week when I leave my link, I go and check out and comment on the 2 posted just before mine (so this week I will get to check out Rachel @ tea w lucy and Dee*construction). Of course I look at more if I can but you know how it is, not always time for comments! All us bloggers know how lovely it is to get comments, so that is just my way of making sure I spread some around each week. It's what my group did for our Project 365 last year and it was such a nice way to keep the encouragement and motivation up! (plus then no-one misses out). Anyway, just wanted to share that... in case anyone else wanted to also join in :)

    1. I like this idea. You are right, we visit such wonderful blogs and browse through many beautiful pictures, but its very difficult to leave comment on each and every page. But writing to atleast two would definitely be encouraging and more involving.
      And i would like to take this opportunity to praise and compliment Jodi for her time & efforts in going through such huge number of pages and pictures, and deciding on beautiful heart-touching 5s. This is really incredible.
      Have a lovely sunday Ladies! :)

  39. Gorgeous light, and composition. Each week I look at every linked up photo, and I see such amazing photos, it really is inspiring. I know that it has made me a better photographer, as I am sure it has for many others.

  40. Oh Jodi, that light! Wow.

  43. Love the little theme you created this week. Clever and beautiful. x

  44. I'm breaking the 'rules' slightly this week Jodi and have introduced my own little project within the 52 Project. Only every now and again though when it feels right. I've been thinking a lot lately about how we don't have enough family pics, and I don't mean our entire family; I mean just Luca and I or Kian and I. I don't want to put more pressure on myself so I thought I'd include something like this within a week's portraits. I'm feeling a huge sense of relief already! P.S. Love the look on Che's face and Poet's beautiful cardigan. x

  57. I was feeding Juno on the couch and this post was on my computer screen. The photo of Che looked like an oil painting from a distance. You captured the light beautifully. I'm still working on capturing light, it's quite tricky.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Both of them, just growing up right before our eyes... it really is amazing when you start to notice the little differences as the weeks go by. I am so thankful for this project x
