During the last 11 months, the most joyful, exciting, memorable and fun moments that I had, had been with my daughter, who is now 11 months old. Seeing her grow has been an amazing experience of my life. She has been a blessing for us.
In this post, I am presenting two of those fun moments.
This is the shot of my daughter when she was four and half months old. She looked straight look into the camera, which any photographer would love the most that their subjects look into the camera and they can capture their beautiful eyes. This makes photographs more intense, magically appealing that connects with the audience instantly. And I am thankful to her that she has given me many opportunities to hone my skills at clicking portraits of children. Otherwise, I know it is a very challenging effort to take shots of children. Here is a shot when she was just 10 days old.
This was the shot which my wife took while we were strolling on Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis during this spring. She loves photography, and was the one who inspired me to learn the techniques of photography. When we took our daughter to the lake, she was very curious and excited looking around things, staring at people. Everything – colors, people, nature, everything and everyone in motion – was new to her, kind of first time since she had come on this earth and in our lives. She was then just seven months old. I was enjoying looking at her. Soon I started imitating her so that my wife can click photos of both of us with similar expression and action. Though I could not match her inquisitive looks, I tried playing ‘like the daughter, so the father’.
