The “air” series

One of the best things about being on vacation is throwing all common sense out the window. We spend all our energy on playing, and make no effort to be the responsible adults we’re supposed to be. A part of the playing is throwing our kids up in the air, and capturing the mid-air moments on camera.

The first time I did this, I showed Josh the picture and said, “Look how much air you got!” That got him hooked. He kept asking for “more air”. The place we were staying at in Whistler is perfect for this. It had a king size bed that is super soft to land on. With a little speed light mounted on the camera’s hot shoe, we got to work every night.

Date night fun

Last night, Cliff and I had date night arranged.  He wasn’t feeling that great, and I was pretty tired.  But it was a very precious opportunity for us to be out without the kids, so we went out, hauling my camera and lighting equipment to Gastown with us.

I had an assignment I needed to do for a class, but I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired.  We tried a few different things, but all I felt was “meh”.  Standing on the sidewalk in Gastown, we started goofing around with the lights, and that was a lot of fun.  These are what we ended up with.
