Fairyography and Stylized Portraiture
Who / What is in the photo : Adorable two year old girl with pigtails in an adorable outfit from Tea Collection. Her mommy says she looks best in brighter colors, so we picked a flutter sleeve outfit and little bloomers in bright colors that wouldn't overwhelm her.
When / where it was taken : Athens GA, UGA Botanical Gardens, April 23rd 2019
How it made me feel : I utterly love this shot. You can see the bubbly personality that she has, but what you can't HEAR is her adorable little burbly voice. She speaks utter nonsense, but it's so high pitched that she sounds like a little fairy. She pretty much floated through her entire shoot, chattering the entire way. Usually I'd be done in about an hour or so, but she was just too cute to stop. We even found a sprinkler for her to run under, which of course she did.. exclaiming "It's wet!!"
Why I shot it this way or why the photos were booked : I wanted to use my macro lens so I could get close enough to her to frame just her face and still include her hair and get her eye super sharp. I like the 50mm for this because it tends to change the shape fpe of the face just enough to make the subject look like they're jumping out of the photo.
How I shot it and what gear I used and what settings it is: Sony A7iii with Metabones V adapter and Sigma 50mm Macro 2.8.Keywords: Botanical Gardens (276). 1/500; f/2.8; ISO 400; 50.0 mm. Heather Lickliter Larkin - 706-338-4414 - 1720 South Lumpkin Ave Athens GA 30606
