Blue – that was colour assigned to the month of May in my color blog circle of talented photographers from across the globe. Working with a theme is something that is a bit out of my element. I am a reactive photographer meaning that I love to watch the scene unfold around me – snapping what catches my eye. This approach is definitely useful for a child photographer as little ones don’t like to sit still! Being reactive leads to photographs that are full of emotion, spirit and connection that captures the true essence of children and families. There is something about looking for a particular element to incorporate in a photograph really pushes me to think in a different way. But I loved the colour challenge! And seeing as blue is my favourite color – this month was especially fun. It is winter here in Australia so many photographs are from after the sun went down, allowing me to work with gorgeous bokeh and lights. Hope you enjoy the selection below. And please follow along and view the amazing work by my friend Heather!
