Yesterday, we were at Camp Williams, waiting for our troops to arrive home from Afghanistan. I enjoy watching people - their expressions, their dress, their interplay with others around them. This is a collage of three shots - my daughter, waiting for her brother to arrive home.

This is an incredibly sweet shot. I'm sure the wait felt too long for all of you. I thank your son for his service.

Nicely done Nathan. Congratulations on your son's return. Praying all is well. I especially like your handling of natural light in the images - it can go so wrong in the sun. Exposures are right on with great contrast - not to harsh. Great work. anne =D

Tell me if you like it or don't but be sure to tell me why! I promise to always give honest and sincere (albeit gentle when necessary) critiques. MY NEW YEARS TIP for all, go have some fun with your new gear you got for Christmas. Do some things you rarely or never do. If you always shoot scenics, go shoot macros (or as close up as you can get.) Practice on different subjects, try new lighting techniques, bracket your shots (shoot the same image at different exposures and different apertures), get down low and shoot from your back, your belly, and your knees. Bend, twist, lean and climb up on things. Shoot toward the sky (carefully - blown out sunlight is NOT attractive :-) Just do something different and amaze yourself then share with us :-) Love you Caedians.

I especially like the one in the middle, she has such a sweet expression on her face and you have captured that moment so perfectly, nice collage Nathan o)

Hope all is well with your son.

Breathtakingly human and the story behind it makes it even better Nathan. I love the way from left to right we have your daughter's profile, then a three-fourths face profile, then a full face shot yet she is never looking at the camera. Excellent! Thank your son for me for being willing to serve and for helping to keep us free!
All the best my friend!

How wonderful to have such emotions showing on a photo. That's so special. I don't know how you got a three in one photo like this, wish you would post us a tutorial on it. I would love to know how to do this. This is just gorgeous. And I really like the 'bloo' on her hair. I have pink on the front of mine..hehe. Please tell her I like that touch of bloo...Verena

An inspired and magical piece of work. I've never seen this approach used before and it's a lesson in portrait photography. Thanks for the schooling.
