Photographer's Note

This was taken a few hours ago just outside my friends apartment, I was standing guard at her double parked car while we were moving her stuff, and what does a TE member do with spare time? Take pictures, and two amazing things happened dring that theree hour moving thing, I found a car I liked so much I took a picture of it, and I managed to get my second portrait of strangers since I've been on TE! Some of you will know this has been (and still is) difficult for me ;o) These two kids were playing around in the street for atleast an hour and they seemed pretty interested in what we were doing, so after I had spent some time gathering my courage (to talk to a couple of ten year olds, scary ;o), smiling at them and kicking their ball every now and then, I asked if i could take their picture, they giggled alot and I told them I thought their hair was cool, more giggling and this is what I got.
Here are the things I remembered:
Smile ;o)
Get down to eye level with the subject.
Get close
and that's a bout it
I forgot Luko's advise about never using a flash (it was getting dark, forgive me)
I forgot to bring a descent camera
I forgot to allow them to look alot more natural
and tons more, but you guys will remind me ;o)

I have to make a list of thank yous - kind of like an acceptance speak at an award show :o))))
Thanks to Curtis and Rinie for support
Darren for so much good advise (I'll start using it soon)
Manny, Maciek, Claud and all other portrait photographers for making me want to learn
Jack for provoking me ;o)
My parents
God and finally the academy ;o)))
