New Assignment at Scott’s Place

Scott Thomas recently announced his latest photo assignment over at his blog: Portraiture.  The requirements are that it has to be a human (sorry Teddy and Daphne!) and that you explain how you do it.  This is an area in which I’d certainly like to improve.  For example:

Here’s my darlin’ girls right after getting haircuts- they wanted pictures for their Facebook profiles, so coaxing this impromptu photo session wasn’t too difficult.  We discovered quickly that they needed to get under our deck umbrella.  The bright sunshine was bleaching out their faces and making them squint.  The shot above was taken under the umbrella, but their eyes aren’t as wide open as I’d like.

I love the soft, glowing look of evening light.

(oops, Maine snuck into my blog post once again!)  I’d love to be able to take advantage of this beautiful time of day for Scott’s assignment.  I wonder what the chances are that I’ll get nice weather with pretty light and a not-too-busy teenager in a good mood all at one time before September 29th? ( That’s Scott’s due date)   I’m thinking about the same that the Red Sox make it to the World Series this year!  😦
