The Polar Opposites

I had to take my studio down over Christmas when my in-laws came to visit and needed a guestroom to stay in. A few days ago I finally got it back up; bigger and better than before. Clearly the room size hasn’t changed, but I decided to take the mattress and box springs off the bed frame and lean all pieces upright against the wall instead of simply pushing the bed in the corner; add to that my new background stand with telescoping bars and ten foot stands and I’m finally somewhat happy with the space.

I’ve been so tired in the evenings though, and too busy researching medium format film cameras (more on that in a different post) that I had not had a chance to go down my improved studio to create anything fun yet, but I’ve been itching to do something there. Today I asked my odler daughter to “pose” for me for a bit just so that I could take some photos of somebody in that space.

My oldest one reluctantly agreed, proclaiming that I could only take two photos of her. I just happened to take six photos which resulted in her “collapsing” on the chair and exclaiming that I am mean to her. It made for a somewhat interesting photograph though.

I Don't Want to do this Anymore

I didn’t even ask my middle child at first, since she is the one who always refuses to have her photo taken, but when she saw her sister being upset, she came up to me and said “mamma, you can take pictures of me” with a big smile on her face. And then she sat down and started making all kinds of faces for the camera. This one was my favorite.
