CORPUZ FAMILY PORTRAIT (2010 B) - Brooklyn, NY, USA
This photo is kind of a remake of another family portrait which I think I can safely say is one of my better shots (see it here: http://smu.gs/tLCxGi) While I don't think this picture is nearly as good, I still like it, and because it's my family, I love it. It's taken straight from the camera without any editing. I was always planning on coming back to improve this one but decided just to leave it as is.
The background is darker than I wanted it to be. If we had eaten our Katz diner sandwiches a little faster and arrived ten or fifteen minutes earlier I would've been able to catch a glorious sunset sky of pink, purple and orange. I could see it on the walk to the pier from the subway. With every labored step, as my back and shoulders ached from the weight of my massive camera bag, I could see that gorgeous sunset steadily fade away, and by the time I got there and had my tripod and three speedlites set up it was gone. Ohhhh well.
