the next time i do family portraits for friends, i'll have to remember the name akihiro furuta.
(found via photojojo)
i'll remember that backlight is always our friend, converting to black & white should never be a scary thing and doesn't have to take away from the photo's authenticity, dogs are people too, and costumes. lots and lots of costumes.
because we should try not to allude that the overly-proper nature of a typical family portrait is who our family is. who we are. -- we're much, much more than that.
next christmas there'll be costumes for sure. (jax's got the idea, balancing that stick on his head.)
