pink fish . . .

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 24 August 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.


I grabbed a candid shot of a young girl sitting at a near-by table in a cafe where we were breakfasting.
She had recently had her face painted at the farmers' market. :-)

that's a lovely portrait, soft colours... a fish in pink is perfect, because she certainly loves glitter and pretty colours :)

I absolutely love your focus and exposure here -just the face and the eyes and the little fish - this is a wonderful sweet piece here, Dulcie. I really love your flower from yesterday as well - wonderful work, Dulcie!

Love the way you've put her off to the left leaning slightly forward so there's a tremendous sense of motion, even a slight blur in the picture, even though nothing is moving. Do you ask people if you can take their picture in cases like this. I want to shoot people (so to speak) but am shy about approaching them.

@joemulligan: Oh, a major drama for me....I most often 'steal' portraits, but then I feel I lose quality. In the cafe, I was shooting 'around' this little girl, and when I saw that she and her parents were not bothered, I went ahead and shot her directly. I often ask first, or gesture. I enjoyed my Photographic Day recently because our host had a studio set up and had invited neighbor children to pose, and I was also free to take shots of his 2 year old son, Aris, whom you've seen here. Portraits are another new learning curve for me.... :-)

Sweet! I love this. The look on her face, the dynamic shot, the graininess, all work in a graphic way. Excellent shot. And I love the fish!
