Portraits by Tammy
I enjoyed this theme and it gave me an opportunity to get some lovely images of some of the kiddies in my life. I love shooting portraits of kids, they are spontaneous and carefree and really let their personalities shine. So, here are my final 5 – a couple of kids, my dog and some nature.
Taine – he is such a gorgeous kid and this photo of him makes me smile.
Lily – I really love this shot of Lily with her hedgehog helmet. Her facial expression is classic!
Fly – there were lots of flies buzzing around my backyard and I wanted to get a super-macro portrait shot. I added a 1.4 teleconverter and diopter to my lens to get this shot.
Osprey – I headed to the Swan River to look for these magnificent birds. They all seemed to be on the other side of the river, until this one landed close by in a dead tree. I crept through the bushes to get closer and he sat for about an hour, sneaking a look my way every now and again.
Hugo – he’s not the most cooperative dog when it comes to photos but he did pose for me a couple of times during the fortnight. I liked this more candid shot which looked even better when converted to black and white.
