    Jdef,

    I have found something very interesting for myself when making portraits of family and loved ones. It comes from all the times I have looked at old pictures and thought or asked "when was this from?" or "Yikes, how old was I here?"

    I state the age as the title of the pictures. "Chuck at 40". "Maddy at 12". It's weird, and maybe only for me, but the title actually adds something to the photograph. It's like the age kind of reverberates around in your head at the same time that you are looking at the person's expression, features, and eyes.

    Just a thought.

    The above, by the way, is Chuck at 40.

    Hello Aggie.

    I am right here. Although you're scaring me with all those question marks.

    Steve - Exactly. I think you made my point better than I did.

    I shoot because it interests me, then I worry about the message. And even that is usually secondary. In the image I posted, it wasn't until I was playing with the cropping that I realized what I had. It was sort of like "Hey, cool, she looks really frazzled and emotional. That is neat." (o.k. neat for ME.... ).

    I find that images with a "Message" tend to be over the top. If I let the message happen, I get a better image.

    Here is an example.

    In this image, I was simply shooting a mother and daughter at a protest rally against the war. I liked the aspect of two generations at the rally. I shot about 3 frames of them just standing there. Then the mother raised her hand and I got this image. Now, I KNEW this was an emotional image when it happened. But it simply HAPPENED. It just occured. I did not try and orchestrate the image at all. Had I done so, I don't think it would of worked at all.

    I try to make photographs that please me, and lately that has been quite a challenge. I'm not at all concerned about the viewer, except myself as the final viewer, nor do I try to impart any kind of message.

    My focus is on the light.

    I try to think of the "LIGHT" as the viewer of my images. If I think the "LIGHT" is pleased with the light in the image, then maybe I have a keeper.
