Get Clean! Drink more Water!

There was a party on my street this weekend; and yes there were lots of kids running around under the hot sun...It was really hot!!! So you can't blame this beauty trying to stock up on good ole hydration. Water is really important people. I came across alot of kidney stone cases this year.

My next three posts will be featuring children. They are the future, you see.......

Nice candid, I see cyrus on her t-shirt. I hope you grabbed a steak for yourself at the party, could be raw steak, could be Male steak, it doesn't matter.
Ada Emihe: Hmmm...There was no male steak oh!!!! I was highly dissapointed! Thank you much Sesan...

Oh yes, Ada. You are so right. Water is like taking a bath on the inside!! (I learned that in massage school!) This is priceless.
Ada Emihe: Thanks so much Ginnie...water is definitely like taking a bath on the inside....You give massages? wow...

This is great Ada, I think there is something precious and fascinating about candid shots like this, or any candid shot, it s so interesting seeing people being just themselves without any pose or self awareness.
I hope you don't mind but compositionwise I think I might have positioned her slightly more to the right as she's looking out of the shot and there is a bit of negative space behind her, I love the shot regardless though and yes they are the future, I hope they make a better job of it than we have sofar!!
Ada Emihe: I totally agree with you Padraig..........the composition is way off. I thought the same thing when I was looking at the picture. I just loved what she was doing. They better do a better job Padraig, they better!
Good to see they drink water and not just the ghastly sweet stuff, Ada.
Ada Emihe: What a relief Chad... we can't have a bunch of very hyperactive kids on the loose...lol.
Super shot Ada. It would be hard for a man to take candid shots of children in this country nowadays. We are in thr grip of a huge moral panic about paedophilia. It wasn't even possible to film my daughter at her nursery school party, because one of the other parents didn't want his daughter on film.
Ada Emihe: I know what you mean Ian....I think it's a bit hard for women too. Snapping away at kids...people get nervous. This world has become such a complicated place. To think you couldn't even film your own daughter. I can't get past that
Thank you Ian...

I totally agree with Padraig ("seeing people being just themselves without any pose or self awareness"), and this the reason why I so love this pic and the themes self: pictures of children and a hommage to the water! Especially under children you can still find this kind of being candid, naturalness and simplicity, whereas adults often like to play a role, to look for a kind of self-performance, for example in so-called self-portraits! The t-shirt of the girl may hint to some of her 'dreams', the earring and her hairs may be important for her too! I have many years worked together with children, and I think I understand them a bit!
Ada Emihe: Very true Philine. I love your words. This is really different from most poraits. It's a joy to actually capture the essence of someone in a photograph. It's even better when children are photographed, it's almost like you can see into their very selves and they are adorable of course. I had an inkling you worked with children. My mum does as well.

Very well captured ...
Ada Emihe: Thank you much Shakara...how you dey?
Lovely one Ada! This is really great, especially with the light falling on the back of her hair. Candid shots with kids take a lot of quit wit and flexibility. They move around so fast, but they are fun to shoot.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Affiong. That light falling on her hair is heavenly! Pure joy!
Lovely shot Ada and I agree with everything you say
Ada Emihe: Thank you much Bill......you better agree,,, :p
lovely shot ada

love your subject, lighting and processing

i think padraig is right about adopting the textbook recommended composition this time

as per the future they can only make the best of what we leave for them
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Draw...Back to the drawing board I say..
