Thanks!

Since everyone here share a similar passion for taking photos of the woman they love, I think it might be interesting to share some thoughts on this.

I find it interesting the different motivations that I have when I take photos of the Mrs. Sometimes, it's the lighting or mood that makes me go run and grab the camera, and that's when I'm in "photography mode," trying to create "good photos." Sometimes, it's moments when she's being particularly playful, funny, or just incredibly dorky. That's when I'm in "Kodak Moment mode," trying to capture those special moments or personality of the woman I love. And then of course, there are times when she simply just looks really cute, elegant, or sexy, and I'm compelled to run and get the camera. That's the "Hot Damn! mode," where I'm trying to capture/preserve her beauty in some form.

The best case scenarios are when all three modes converge and that's when I just feel totally blessed, being able to combine my love for photography and my love for my wife into one creative and fulfilling endeavor. No other kinds of photography even comes close to me, because other subjects aren't so dear to my heart, and it's so fun to interact with her, since she's so expressive, cooperative, and fun as a model. I suppose if we had children they'd give her some competition, but we don't, so she's got all of my love and attention.

Terrific post :cool:

And beautiful images of your lovely wife. Props to both of you for capturing all that you mentioned above.

Scouting a location with the wifey.
Gotta love a woman who knows how to work her own gears. ;)

Interesting processing. It almost looks like stylized pen and ink art with spotting black and combined with a photo. You stopped right at the ideal threshold too, before the deep blacks started showing distinct artifacts.

Perhaps not the most flattering pic of my wife, but I really really like it because I feel like I've achieved the look I've been after for a long time. Canon colors. It was my wife who finally let me go full frame (Nikon) a year and half ago, and now finally has gotten on board with me switching back to Canon....and even after I show her this picture and the look I have achieved, she is still insisting that I go to Canon :D I'll highly welcome 5D3's AF and 135L and Canon's used lens market!

I mainly post new photos to my own website (http://www.ethereality​.info (external link)), and you can subscribe to the RSS feed there. :)

I haven't logged into my Flickr account for years now. You post reminded me to go and update it. :D https://www.flickr.com …0/sets/72057594​095034856/ (external link)
