Love at 50, an Anniversary shoot
these are my folks. We are celebrating their 50th in a couple of months and I had to talk them into doing a photo recreation of their portrait that was done just after their wedding. I did a first take that wasn't quite perfect, had to talk them into a retake..... I think the results paid off!
This is the image I took just two days gone
Here is the new compared to the image taken 50 years back.
Lee, this is fantastic!! Nicely done. Really amazing to see these side by side.
The side by side comparison is just amazing ! Great Work ! Did you take both of them?
Thanks Mitchell. Amitg, I did not take the first one... that was done 50 years ago and I am 45......(the first being my parents just after their wedding day) they say it was a studio that offered an annual portrait deal they signed up for...
After having to talk my mom into both sittings, she saw this and decided to be vain... she wanted a 3rd take to change her dress of all things to hide her collarbones.... I took this new one last night, concentrating on the hand placement, working on my lighting a bit.... I think this one is a winner as well, offering the new shot up for comparison.
That's a pretty cool idea, nice pics!
Tried to make some improvements......
A wonderful idea, and well executed. Your folks must be thrilled!
