Recently, like … last Saturday, I joined a 10|10 circle with fellow Clever Cookie graduates. We post ten pics on the tenth of each month and then link up to one of the others in the circle. In this way you, the viewer/reader and us of course, can click through the circle en look at all of our pictures of that month. An inspiring and challenging thing to do but I’m so up for it. I really want to get into photography and develop some serious skills and routine. So that’s one thing I hope to get out of this circle.
With a pretty busy schedule this weekend, time wasn’t on my side. But I really didn’t want to wait till next month to jump in. So when my sister asked me to go for a walk and shoot some pictures I jumped in. A chance for me to get a post going. We went out on a sunny afternoon during ‘golden hour’ so the light was very pretty. Also this was the first really sunny day in weeks of rain and cold wind so there were many people walking and cycling around. I guess spring showed it’s first signs today and lots of people were happy with that.
She was looking for some pictures to be able to use as example for her paintings (she does a great job at that btw). For my part, I really wanted to shoot some pictures with her. Shooting people and capturing who they are is what I love about photography.
In post processing I did some basic Lightroom editing like exposure, contrast and highlights/shadows. But only a little where necessary. I really hope you enjoy them and maybe have some tips for me. Maybe when I get some prints I’ll also get some black and whites. I really like black and white!
Don’t forget to check out Jens pictures at Pierced Wonderings and complete the full circle of link ups. Eventually you’ll end up here again and hopefully you had a great time watching all those lovely pics.
This last picture is a bit of a fun one. Imagine dirt flowing out of that pipe above her. That was the idea…

She is isn’t she Jess. And I’m so glad I joined in. Very excited to see this all happening.
Hey Eric, you sister is a natural. I’m guessing also, her talented bro had a lot to do with it 😉 Lovely photos xx
She sure is Jo! And thank you so much.
Gorgeous photos! I’m playing around with Lightroom trying to figure it all out! And just cheekily, how nice to have a guy in the link up mix!!
Thank you Shan! Lightroom is great once you get the hang of it. And the pleasure is all mine, so glad I joined in!
Such a fun thing to do with your sister, Erik. x
It is Maxabella. I really love to do 1-on-1 shoots.
Always great to have a willing model Erik! Thanks for sharing.

Great photos Erik. What a trooper you sister is. It’s so good when you get a co-operative model x
Thanks Karen! Yes she is, it makes shooting easier and more fun!
Nice pictures Erik! I like the soft light that we have now in march here. The sun is not strong yet and i think it makes beautiful portraits! xx cathy
Thank you Katy! I agree with you. The light is really beautiful this time of year!
It’s great to see you in the circle Erik! You’ve done a great job, I’d love to see some of your sister’s paintings one day.
I’m glad I’m here Lisa and thanks so much! I’ll ask her if she can share some pictures of them. If so I will let you know :).
Wow Erik! Your sister is so lucky to have you take such lovely photos of her.
Thank you so much Lauren! For my part I consider myself lucky she lets me shoot her.
Beautiful shots Erik! The light you’ve captured is just gorgeous.
Your sister is so nice to let you take photos of her! I don’t have any willing subjects for photo practice!
Thank you so much Lauren! I feel lucky she lets me take her photos.
Keep shooting and showing your photos. Cause it only takes one person who wants you to take their picture!
How lovely to have that series of photos of your sister Erik. Something you will both look back on and smile about later. x
I know we will Ellen. Thank you!
Your sister will treasure these photos now. What a fun way to spend a afternoon together x
Thanks! We had a lovely time 🙂
How awesome that you two enjoy each other’s company! I really like the 8th & 9th pictures of her – great job with those!
It truly is Jen. Thank you so much!
Great job Erik – definitely some portraits there worthy of framing 😉
Thanks so much Sally! Definitely, maybe enlarge it a bit so it’s in a nice format…
I love the playful pic! Great shots, so natural and candid. Nice work! 🙂
Thank you so much Sasha!
How sweet of your sister to be your model! Lovely photos Erik!
