    Portraits - The fun side

    Hi all,
    My girlfriends niece is graduating and I (reluctantly, as I hate portraits) agreed to do just some informal stuff down at the park. Funny, it seems the goofy stuff I did for fun turned out better. (Why is that??) I think her personality showed through more. Anyway, enjoy! Scooter.

    Not bad Scott!
    I think you answered your own question!
    By being silly she felt more comfortable to be in front of the camera and more of the real her came through in the pictures!

    Thanx Brian!

    I just don't do it enough to gauge if it shows through to others. It's like, I was there and got to meet her and see it firsthand, but I try to be aware of the fact that other people viewing weren't there. So is the more casual stuff just personally better to me? Know what I mean Vern? I'm not sure I do either!

    Nice job all around. I think she looks like a blond Sally Fields.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??
