Cool | Main | Capoeira in Color
Nikon N75, Nikon 50mm f1.8

Several weeks ago our photogroup (including Chiaroscuro, Luminous Lens, and Visual Field) met for a photoshoot. Our subjects were a friend who does capoeira, and a couple expecting a baby (they had a baby girl May 3rd!). Here's one of my favorite shots of them (if you can really say it's a photo 'of' them). More photos from the photoshoot coming soon!

excellent work, the DOf and focus and exposure are dead on.

This is a great shot. I've done a couple of pregnancy sessions; I'll have to remember this post for the next.

I like how you focused on the hands instead of the belly. Nicely done!

Very nice, it makes me smile and hope to have a family like that too one day... It's the most beautiful thing...

Very very good. Great title too. You should wait one more day so that you can use this one on Mothers' Day. :)

It's great! Of all the shots I took that night, my favorite one is also of this scene. I have two, one of which is identical to yours. Maybe I'll still post my vertically framed version, which is at least slightly different, though not by much. :)

I love this one. The B&W makes it totally awesome. Great how the hands come together.....

Timeless image, and perfectly titled:-)

This is sooo beautiful! Truly special. Words could not fully express how this photograph makes me feel :)

I love this!! Very nice and soft, and well-composed.

(It looks very similar to the photo I was planning to post tomorrow, though I think yours is better because it includes both of their hands and the bare belly. Anyway, you'll see!)

I get a warm feeling inside by looking at this... A photo "of them", indeed.

Posted by: Paulo Ribeiro at May 7, 2005 8:58 PM

this is so incredible beautiful, I gasped when I saw it ... sigh ... :)
