Vacation Day!

Tyler, 8″x10″, Feb 2012

Today I get out of town and travel northwest to Lake Marion. This will be a challenge for me because I’ve set myself the goal of photographing my family. I rarely shoot people. Not because I don’t want to but because it’s the hardest subject for me to analyze. I get lost in my emotional response. Tyler’s image above is one of the good ones. There’s action, tension and psychic line. The psychic line is the imaginary line we draw in our minds when we follow another person’s gaze. It’s a powerful tool in portraiture, rarely used in studio portraits. We’ll see what happens!
