This is one of the students from my first Photography Funshop. I asked the kids to bring an object with them today that had some special meaning to them. My goal was to incorporate that object into unique portraits. This is Sofie's portrait. Sofie has aspirations of becoming a professional dancer and she is well on her way! I asked her to hold her shoes and she did the rest. I only got two shots of each student, so this isn't the sharpest image, but it captures her personality. I thought to clone the camera out of the image, but it's a part of who she is as well.
This is David's portrait. The future cyclist who is dreaming of being a sports photographer.
We had a great time learning and then practicing the things we learned. I was truly inspired by the enthusiasm that emanated from these great young artists!
