I’ve written before that my daughter Magdalena is my favorite model, and she seems to get better with expressions, concepts and styling each year. The easiest way to get a good reaction from her, or any kid, is to put them in an unique environment that they can respond genuinely to.
We took a family trip to San Diego and Legoland at the start of January and the environments were Imperial Sand Dunes, the Lookout Tower off of I-8 (with a lot of snow around), Motel 6 in Escondido, Legoland, and Balboa Park in San Diego. “I want to go to the snow! I want to go to the sand!” We took her, she reacted and I documented it. That’s easy photography.
All shots were with the Fuji X-T1, mostly the 35mm lens though at the sand dunes I kept the kit 18-55mm lens on. I don’t know how many times I foolishly presumed I could switch a lens in a sandy environment only to find I had royally messed up the sensor. This time, I kept one lens and worked with it.
If you enjoy any of this work I encourage you to like it and share it! For more photoworks goodness peruse my Etsy shop, follow on tumblr and twitter and instagram, and rummage around on my full site.
