Who says that two-week old babies don’t smile? This is my grand-daughter, Frida. She smiles, fleetingly.
And here are pictures of Frida’s parents, their suggestion that I post. I took a bunch of photos for them yesterday and these are among my favourite that I have processed so far. Not sure why as they are a bit stiff in some way. I think that is what attracts me to them. As I have noted before, I am not much of a portrait photographer, but it is fun to try with willing subjects.These shots were taken in the fading light of the late afternoon in their apartment. The light was quite low, but also pretty good for what I wanted to do – two windows facing them and another to the left side. I wanted them quite well-lit compared to the back ground so it could be made to disappear a bit, or a lot.
