A Girl’s Favourite Pastime

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, November 27, 2007

Funny how you get someone to relax and they drop into their favourite mannerisms. If I’m taking photos of couples I try to get them interacting. Whenever I can I try to get the lady to come over her man’s shoulder. Really it’s just something they have often done without even realising it. He’ll be sitting in a chair reading and she’ll come and touch him on the shoulder and give him a peck on the cheek. A moment of intimacy as the day goes by. So I try to reproduce that in what is often a public setting.

In the case below it works well. They relaxed together. In the meantime, another young lady took a phone call from a friend. She was right into it when we finished the couple. So I just whipped up the camera and fired away. She was great about it – as the facial expressions show.



Ok I know.  It’s all been about the ladies with this shoot.  Well the young guys will get some action over the next couple of days.
