My Lucca - The Blog - started with this photo.
My husband that is a professional photographer said “you keep nailing so many pictures of him, but this is the winner”.
Because I’m starting to learn everything about blogs and how interesting they are - yes, I know I’m late - I decided to create this space where I can show techniques and tips to shoot little ones or big ones, without a lot of concerns, equipments, lights and “pre-production”, just letting your kid be, play, discover new things, keep a moment forever and having fun while doing it.
My Lucca used to be a really easy baby boy to photograph, he used to smile for the camera “for free”, any time, anywhere, super easy. Any idea I had I could accomplish.
But now, looks like he wants to be behind the camera too…
I was lucky with this one: Lucca is so excited with his new ukulele, he couldn’t let it go for anything - he took it to the park, farmers market, everywhere. In this moment he was trying to go down the stairs with his inseparable ukulele and I was worried checking on him, because his face was like he was accomplishing a big mission, and he got tired, stopped in the middle of the stairs and started to play……… and sing! I was so happy, enjoying and watching the scene, so natural, that after 5 minutes I remember, oh I have to get my camera! It was just time to snap 2 or 3 shots, and then, he started to go down again.
:: About the light :: in front of him just a little bit up was this big window with the perfect light for this moment - 8:30am.
Window light is magical, can make such miracles in portraits, interior photos, everything.
I’m sure I’ll talk a lot about that, I use it all the time.
I knew this photo needed to be square. Because I felt in love with this picture/moment/my son creating songs…. I wanted to share on instagram right away.
This is just the beginning - cheers for my first post!
