p.1 #1 · Pillow Fight


I've been shooting a lot more personal stuff in large part because of a project that some photographer friends and I are embarking on. Bottom line, as working photographers we dont really turn the camera on our own families. So collectively, we hope to push one another to post personal work. That collection/project can be viewed here: www.familyofphotographers.com

Here are some shots of a pretty epic pillow fight that resulted in some tears and a broken bed:

I like the motion in these, Chuck. #3 is great, with your middle son's look of terror and Max's look of "I dunno 'bout this, dad".

I cracked up, thinking about Alwin's earlier comment about one kid always being without clothes.

So, did the lego toys on the shelf survive, and did you get in trouble for the broken bed?

I'm usually not a fan of slow shutter shots, but these work great! I love #4. The motion is great, and the expression on the little guy is priceless XD. You really captured that moment perfectly.

Thanks all!

Michael, can I ask why slow shutter shots dont appeal to you? Just curious. Thanks for the comment.

David, nope, no trouble at all.

Love these - 3 and 4 are great - especially little dude looking right at us in # 3. He's speechless, witnessing the Pillowpocalypse.

Seeing shots like these makes me look forward to seeing my own sons grow up!

Love seeing more family work out of you of late. 3 is great Chuck.

Edited to add that the new site/project is great.

It's not that they don't appeal to me. I prefer it a lot with landscape photography. However, I've seen slow shutter work with portraits that I just haven't found appealing because it didn't add any purpose to the photograph. In this case, however, you pulled off the slow shutter nicely. It adds meaning to the pillow fight, and emphasizes the action taking place. Really solid work

Thanks guys!

Michael, Thanks for responding. I'm a sucker for effective slow shutter speeds. I really only try to use them to enhance the image. Glad you found this one effective!

I wouldn't have been able to take these photos. They would be in time out hahaha.

Oh Chuck, if we ever meet, I will teach you about exposure triangle. Your shutter is too slow

im so happy you're posting here more often

I just go with the flow, so my favorite is 3 (though the crooked windows kill me). The shadow on the wall adds a little element of fear. Overall awesome photo, I think the best in a while.

Also the look on the Moose's face in 4 is perfect. A little empathy going on

thanks a lot all! #3 is my fav. Z, happy to be posting again as for #4, not sure about empathy though...i think its 'oh crap, that just came so close to my face' and is in between blinks.
