Still Life

It's family portrait time so I'm up to my ears in images. I'm actually feeling a little buried at the moment.

Instead of dancing around to get people to look at the camera I can take my time and really focus on the light and composition of the shot. My Polaroid is especially easy because there is no thinking about exposure settings or retouching in Photoshop. I also love the character of an old grainy image with a little natural vignetting around the edges. Here are a few recent favorites:
