Piano Man




My 15-year-old wanted me to take him driving today -- he got his driver's permit last week. I told him I would if he would let me take some pictures of him playing the piano. HMMM. Seems like he got the better end of this deal! It isn't nearly as scary to let me take pictures of him as it is for me to ride in the car with him.:) Oh well. There's a lot of noise in these shots, but I kind of like the effect.
Thanks for looking!

These are so awesome! I love the close up and the shallow DOF. Beautiful.

These are great! I'd say it was a fabulous deal for both of you!

These are great! We totally need a piano player here.... we have the piano, but nobody plays it. Correction... the boys were playing it earlier tonight and it was sweet!

Love that first one. :)

I really like your second shot. I think the noise really makes the photo in that one.

Jason said...

Great pictures! I'm with you on the noise it kinda works. Good luck with the driving, I will stay off the road (or atleast out of your area.) =0)

I like the noise, too. And I love the depth and warmth of the color in the first. He has artistic hands.

Meg, love the middle shot; such an unusual POV. YOu must've been sitting on the floor to get that. I'd say that was a pretty good trade-off, but hear you on the nerves!!

These are awesome! I can almost hear the music! Wonderful shots!

Love them! He's got nice hands! And I may have been wrong yesterday when I told you to check out Dropkick Murphys--I think it's the accordion they use, not bagpipes. Oops.
