The Marathon Runner

Chris Lane / photography / / 2 Comments

This is number 11 in my 52 week project. This photo goes quite a ways back actually. This is my first son when he was less than a year old yet. I have it dated at 08/08/08 of all things. This is fully natural ambient lighting.
I like to think he is stretching out getting ready to run a marathon, and in fact he was walking by 9 months, which I think is pretty incredible. He was also a ridiculous climber of everything, much to the chagrin of my wife and I. He could get into absolutely anything.

And now for something different

Chris Lane / photography, process / / 4 Comments

Here is this weeks photo for my 52 week project. I think this makes 5 so far. I really went for something quite different this time. I actually took this photo last night (Thursday) while my son and I were playing in the snow. I used the on camera flash (shudder!) to get him sharp and still and then the yard light was behind him. After the flash went off I had a 2 second exposure and moved the camera around, effectively light painting with the yard lamp. I’ve never actually done a light painting photo before, though have known how for a long time.
I don’t entirely know why I like how this photograph turned out, but I do. I think part of it is Tristan’s expression as he looks into the sky along with the totally odd light rings around him. I decided, for no apparent reason besides whim, to make this shot look like an old polaroid, or cross-processed print.
I’d really like to hear what you think about this. Let me know in the comments below.
