"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Front Porch Ambient Light Portrait- Godmother/Goddaughter

Taking photos of people on the front porch is the nicest light.  Not too much, not too little. Like Baby Bear- it’s just right!

No squinting from the midday sun either (but there really wasn’t any full sun this weekend, due to some thick cloud cover and rain, rain, rain)

Was out visiting in Columbus and getting ready to go home.  Matty and Maura and I were in a separate car from the rest of the family due to schedules and timing.  We swung by Laura and James’ house to see their freshly decorated tree that a few hours earlier had been tied on the roof of their car.  I took a Christmas photo of them in their living room so had the camera out as we headed back to the car.  “Quick” Laura said. “Godmother, goddaughter shot!” Pressed once and it shot two in quick succession.

And that is how the Front Porch Ambient Light Portrait got taken on Sunday afternoon before I headed back to Pittsburgh to start a new school week.
