My brother's first novel, "The boy and the Bastard" got published and I am so proud of him and his accomplishments. It is a really wonderful read so I wanted to get photos of people holding his book and this one was one of my favorites that I took in the library aisles of my niece. I love that this photo involves my family and their talents. (The title of this novel has changed to "The Boy and What Might of Been" by Russell Newell)

I must tell you, this is one of the first groups of photos I came across when I joined VB, and to this day, remains possibly my favorite model / shoot on all of VB!

Thank you. That was my intention for this photograph to showcase my Brother's first novel and to only capture her eyes while holding up the main subject of my photograph of my my brother's book with the great red book cover. I was using his published first novel as a series project, showing his book in different places with different people holding it. My beautiful niece modeled for me holding up the book so I could capture it with only her eyes showing

Hey there. Yesterday I have seen this image on s. Is that you or someone have stolen it and posted it over there?

Lovely

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo at a library, inbetween the book shelves
Time
It was right when the sun was going down In the evening and the light was gorgeous pouring into windows creating a nice natural glow
Lighting
I didn't use any flash because the natural evening sunlight was coming in through the windows behind me. It was perfect timing to be indoors with big windows of evening light flowing into the library
Equipment
I used my Canon 7D with my 50 mm prime lens
Inspiration
My brother wrote his first novel, "The Boy and The Bastard" so that was my inspiration to use his novel in the library. It was very exciting to use my photography to promote my brother's amazing book. I am very proud of him and I instantly had the idea of photographing his book in a library. I also got to photograph my lovely niece so it makes me love this photo that much more.
Editing
I didn't use any photoshop and did very little editing. Just used a little contrast and bumped up the colors a little
In my camera bag
My canon 7D and my 85mm lens and my 50mm lens and one wide angle lens. I mostly love to use my prime lenses.
Feedback
Anything or anyone who inspires you is what makes the best photographs in my opinion. Trust your gut feeling of an idea in your mind immediately of your inspiration and just go with it and have fun and just experiment. I find that those are always the photographs of mine that I love most.
