Ice Cream Fight


Blogger micki said...

The first shot today is a reference shot only. It scanned in so poorly this morning, not sharp at all. The shot for today, the bottom one, was scanned in on my first copy/scanner/faxer/printer before it died.

Last summer, on a very warm evening, we were out shooting these staged shots (the top photo) when my oldest and youngest daughters started goofing around. That’s the bottom photo. The top photo would have been fun, but the background was too busy. My daughter is sitting on the roots from the first of 12 trees that fell around and on the house during hurricane Isabel. I was testing out the dof on my lens, shooting at various stops. This is the one that netted me the result I wanted. After we were done, the ice cream was melting and my youngest ran up behind her big sister to try to steal the cone. That’s when I got the bottom photo.

When we were done, they went inside to play video games with their other sister and their father and I did the dishes. The boys watched a movie.

What a great capture of funloving sisters. Do they get along? It looks as if they do here.

Don't you dare go digital. If you can get results like these onto a PC without working them afterwards you have no reason to leave film.
I *love* the second shot. It's so full of fun and life! I hope you have this blown up and hanging on your wall!

Micki these are both great shots! I'm expecting a third one showing ice cream all over someone's face. Hey, do you have an RSS feed? I can't find it.

Fun times. The tones look very good, and the glowing softness (but still with detail) is very appealing. Nice shots.

Haha, even if they're are staged or set up, or however the correct term would be; they are so full of dynamic, smiles and laughter. A very happy shot. :)

Nice B&W's. We have quite a discussion here on local photography forums and scanned negatives really do need some sharpening to get the best out of them.

I like them both, these photos are alive ! Perhaps the first one is a bit too "white" for me (the t-shirt). Anyway that a good job
