Yesterday my daughter allowed me to take a few pictures of her. The negotiation was hard and had something to do with printing her a picture of her choice before bedtime Very Happy

Very different ones, at first something for grandmothers...
Helios 40-2, f2.8, light from window, ISO800 denoised



And now not for parents:
"STOP TAKING PICTURES OF ME!!!"

1. Stage:



and 2. Stage:

AWWWW-W-W your daughter is so cute!!! Very Happy

I totally agree the Helios-40-2 has the Magic with the capital M!!
I keep watching the warm soft B&W and the slightly cool delicate colors of the second picture and I can not decide myself which I like better!

I suspend judgement on the third picture as the subject was clearly stormy Laughing

He will treasure every one of them.
And not only him - his daughter will, too!

I wonder how we can persist against her strong will the next years. Very Happy Sometimes I'm envy about you and attila, you survived the hardest time. Very Happy

Thanks for your nice comments guys. This is my kind of photography, I like available light portraits most. I can't publish many of them, because most people didn't want to see her portraits in the net. This is the reason why I'm always showing pictures with members of my family ...

100% agreed!

And I also know the "problem" that people do not want their pictures published.
