Flowers and family week

Welcome back to this week in pictures series and up for grabs this week is a little mix of my adorable little nephew as well as a dive into the world of flowers.

Pulled off a BBQ this week and had my little nephew over and took the opportunity to try and get some decent shots in.

Few things are as adorable as portraits of kids and this one just melts my heart. I always try to bring out the specific personality of any portrait that I take and here I really pulled it off as I can truly see my little nephews personality shine through. Photographing kids can be a challenge as they never sit still but the big advantage over adults is that they still have that non posing extremely natural look.

Here I wanted to portray the emotion and connection between a child and their grandparents. You see that pure joy in his face, the complete and utter bliss of getting to hang out with grannie.

So then lets dive into the world of flowers through the glass of the wonderful Canon 100mm Macro 2,8.

Trying out macro on freehand can be demanding when using a very shallow depth of field as the area of focus can be extremely narrow so wanted to get more in focus so I resorted to f/8 in this case. Very happy with the result as I always want to show a completely new world with macro and I really think it does.

Innocence‘Innocence’

One of my favorite things with nature pictures is the possibility to translate it into modern day life. A lot of emotions that people go through everyday I believe can be found all around us in nature too and this was my attempt at innocence/fragile.

Growingup‘Growing up’

Imagining a flower family with three kids and you get to watch them grow up and blossom into beautiful individuals. Adding a colorful surrounding to it as well helps create a magical atmosphere.

The last one for this week is just a simple attempt to portray the odd one out. The one who breaks the norm, standing tall and proud like a sore thumb for everyone around secretly wishing they had the guts to stand out just like her.

Hope you all had a wonderful week and until the next ciao for now
