Most of us who flew back to the Philippines to attend a couple of weddings are back in Calgary. Since most of them have not reported back to work yet, Liza and I decided to pay them a visit last night.
My brother-in-law just bought a house so we asked him to show it to us. It was a great opportunity for me to take pictures using my new lens.
The house looks bare right now; the newlyweds have not even moved in yet:
We had to sit on the floor, but nobody seemed to mind that there were no couches to sit on at all:
No photo shoot of mine will be complete without my wife Liza:
It was a great chance for me to practice some portraiture. Here is my newly married brother-in-law, Leo:
Leo’s wife, Serene:
Serene’s sibling, Becky:
One of my brother-in-laws, Sandy:
Sandy’s wife, Marie:
Sandy and Marie’s first born, the ever precocious Ezekiel:
I just love taking pictures of this child. And he equally loves to pose for me! He appears to be having a bad hair day here:
I always get a treat when I shoot Ezekiel’s dad, Sandy. I usually gets rewarded with candid shots like this:
I get the same candid shot reward with Leo. Here he is checking the specs of their new home:
What a treat! I could have focused the lens better on my portrait shots. I would loved it if I had focused on their eyes better, but that’s the way it goes for a beginner like me. I’ve read in some photography forums that the only way one can hone one’s skill is to just shoot, shoot and shoot. So that is what I’ve been doing.
I have no ambition of making a profession out of this hobby; it is just something that is so fun to do and share. I hope that everyone who gets to view these shots will feel the same delight in viewing them as I do now.
