[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Norway last week we were attending a birthday party for one of my good friends and he asked if I would take some photos of his family. For that reason I packed a strobe light and some other gear. I took those photos and some of our other friends visited the hotel so I asked the management if I could use a large room to take some photos. While we were there two young girls came to the door and asked if I could take their photo. A few minutes later their mother came by and I took a photo of her and her daughter. She told me that her grandmother was 93 and they were having a family reunion but forgot their cameras so I invited her Grandmother to come down and got this shot of her with her Great Grandchildren.

This shot was done with one strobe and one opaque disc that I aimed the strobe at to bounce it to the subjects.

Every picture tells a story, every expression opens the soul.


Bom dia Roger,
I'll settle me of the phrase Steve on each picture tells a story.
This one tells the two, this beautiful family, and the faces that make up, but also of your history as a photographer of souls.

Boa tarde Roger

Hello Roger,
How good to always get some interesting, and often very useful, technical information from you. This is also a meaningful image in excellent quality. Even the background is very appropriate as it creates a particular style for the picture. Well done, and they must be really pleased with the result. Best wishes.
