We had a couple of brothers in for sports collages this week. We always end up taking more shots than we will actually use in the final piece. I’m not sure if these two images will be used or not, but thought you might enjoy seeing them anyways.
I loved the intensity on the older brother’s face in this shot. He is a pitcher on his little league team and I wanted to capture what the batter sees right before the pitch.
His younger brother was photographed in his soccer uniform. Although we ended up with a lot of smiling shots, I loved the mood of this image.
To me, it is a classic portrait of a little boy. He isn’t trying to pose for the camera. It is just a simple, honest image that really has a sense of drama. His casual glance is what makes it work.
