The young lass went of to school this week — to Junior Kindergarten to be exact. She will be going everyday and all day, Monday through Friday. That’s a lot for a wee one, but every second day is actually a headstart/daycare type of program rather than JK per se. It’s all part of an initiative to get kids off to a good start to their school years. For all I know, Ontario may be the only jurisdiction in North America that does this full day program for kids that young, partly to relieve the strain on working parents. It makes me kind of proud to tell the truth.
Of course, the camera was working overtime on the first day, and I will post more pictures of the events, but in the meantime, I want to share three portraits taken that day. I call them portraits, but of course, they are fleeting snaps with available lighting — hardly portaits in the studio sense.
As you will soon see, despite the fact that there are five photos, there are only three poses — all in black and white or a tinted more sepia-like version. Not able to make up my mind whether I prefer the straight b&w or the tinted version, I offer both in two cases. Also, I accidentally had the camera set to overexpose, so they are unintentional high key photos, which I actually like.
Note to self: check the camera setting before you start shooting, AC.
I recommend that you click here to see the last photo on black. It just looks better.
