Well, as much as I love this forum, I have fallen short when it comes to posting images. Just too busy admiring the excellent work on this site. Combine that with the fact that I truly feel my images pale in comparison to most of those posted. Well, I am going to try to contribute a little more often. So, here is my Mother's Day gift to my beautiful wife. Inspired by Stu and other garage portrait shooters, these were taken in my garage. Additional inspiration by numerous posts and most recently by the post of flyfishdk (nico). And final inspiration by all of you whose best models are your children. I had a final product in my mind... wanted to give my wife a photo of our children with the thing they love the most. My son, Niko, is a senior and will soon leave us for the Colorado School of Mines on a full ride basketball scholarship. My daughter, Kelsea, is an incredible jazz musician and trombone player. These are their passions. Our passion is them. When it was done, I was thrilled. It was exactly what I wanted and it was used as a gift for my Mom as well. I think that I was most thrilled that my very unwilling models did such an excellent job, seemed to actually enjoy it and loved the finished product. Yes, I know these photos are a little soft. I know that there are blown highlights on my son's arm and nose. Technically, I am still learning and my first garage experiene wasn't perfect. But, I captured my children's passion... and thus the title. Comment away on the execution, that is perfectly fine. But mostly, please comment on the inspiration, the idea and the gift.
