“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
– Plato –
Just another experiment playing with lantern. Actually I wanted to go the the small wooden bridge that I’ve always photographs my family there but darkness almost fell, and while there is still a light on the sky, I try to photographs my son Raphael against the sunset. I need a clear or a little bit bright sky to separate my son head or body from blending together with it.
It’s quite dark already, I’m using ISO 3200 and set my aperture at f/2.8 and using 1/30 sec of shutter speed to get this shot with 50mm fixed focal length attached.
This was taken just few hundred meters from our home, so I think this might add a little bit of a sense of belonging or a sense of place to my little Raphael childhood.
My idea with the lantern is to try photographs my children in a different places, not just nearby my house, hopefully all over Malaysia or if possible, hopefully I’ve enough money and time, and good health, to photographs my family all over the world with the lantern against some of the beautiful landscape or landmark. But before that, I’ll start with my neighborhood.
