I have been volunteering for the past few weeks at a program downtown called “Our World In Pictures,” where I have been mentoring young children from low-income families. At the program, we teach the children how to express themselves through photography. Today’s lesson was on portraits, and these are two of my favorites that I snapped while teaching.

The light in the hotel was fantastic for a few portraits.

The view from the bride’s bedroom was stunning. I took two versions of this photo, one with the background in focus and one with her silhouette in focus. I like this one better.

This photo is an almost, I think. It’s too dark. I wanted to capture the hands and the feet in the black, but I think it needs a touch more light. Perhaps toning could help.

This was my first attempt to use flash. It took a bit to get used to.

This was a fun idea. We took the bride to a bar, and yelled for everyone to toast to her. I’m disappointed that this came out so dark, but I think toning might help.

These shots were my idea. When we came out after the wedding, I saw a firetruck and an ambulance right across the street, lights flashing. I grabbed Christina and we threw Nick and Casey between them.

And then, of course, there is the cake.

Until I make my next post, this picture should suffice.

$10 says you’ve never seen a Rolls Royce getting towed.
