Favorite Photo from 2010

I was going to sit down tonight and glance through all my photos from 2010 to decide which one to enter in this photo challenge from I Heart Faces. But I already had a pretty good idea in my mind which photo I was going to choose. When I asked my husband what he thought, as I often do when I can’t make up my mind, he mentioned the same photo I had been considering. So I don’t think I’ll go through all the photos after all. Allow me to show you my favorite photo from 2010.100220_0057-1a

This is my father-in-law. He agreed to cooperate with me for one of my photography assignments while I was taking a class earlier last year. It was a photo journalism assignment, so I took pictures of him while he was in the process of making his pottery. I took a few portraits of him standing outside his studio before we got started. This was the first time I had ever tried taking portraits of someone other than my kids and husband. I was nervous, but he was being himself, kidding around the whole time. I really enjoyed taking this photo, and I love how it captured him. He is such a fun, kind man who has so much love for his family (especially his grandchildren—he even prods me when he hasn’t seen enough photos of them on the blog). I’m so glad to have this photo and to have been able to share it with the rest of our family.

  3. I agree, those tones are wonderful. I love the composition of this photo and how you can tell that he is proud (yet humble) about the wonderful work that he does. Nicely done.
