Looking Silly in Photographs

looking-silly-photographs

Sometimes as photographers we make our subjects look silly, and sometimes we make ourselves look silly. For example, in the first photo you will notice it’s a behind the scenes view (which my wife captured). It looks like I am photographing the couple’s butts.  I’m down on a knee and the couple is standing with their Continue reading…

Night Vision Photographers
