Birthday shoot: Charlie and friends

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any photo’s of one my favourite subjects – people! Truth be told, I’ve been sitting on these shots for a couple of weeks because I haven’t been sure how I would edit them. Well, tonight that changed. In an effort to push myself out of my usual routine, I launched Photoshop and set out to create a different ‘feel’ to these shots I took recently at my nephews 2nd birthday party. I’m quite pleased with the results. Kids are just so wonderful to shoot; so much of their being is communicated through their eye’s and smiling faces….plus, you don’t have to spend much time in post fixing their skin (just the dirt and cake crumbs if you so inclined) 🙂

Happy birthday Charlie.
