Lift Your Soles Up and Smile!

174

Winter time. Rain, snow, wind, cold weather. This is time to remember the last summer, time to enjoy smiling photos taken outdoor in the hot season. So, lift your soles up and smile!

In my previous article, I wrote about why I like photos of feet, and I have published some photos of feet up in the air, with a wonderful blue sky on the background. In all these photos, there were portraits of the “A” side of this wonderful extremity of the human body. Now, is time to show, again “just for fun”, the “B” side of the feet. Lift up your soles, so someone can take a photos of this fantastic pose!

… and, of course, you can take a photo of the photographer! This is the “reciprocity” law, a law which leads to fun!

All these photos I chose were taken outdoors. I chose only photos in open air, in a park or at the seaside because I always associate the joy of living barefoot with a fantastic sense of freedom!

Smiling faces, lovely sunny days, good company, wonderful places! These photos transmit to me a sense of peace, happiness, and empathy to the whole world!

You can make many experiments with this pose: for example, using a wide aperture, you can focus only on the faces or on the feet. If you choose a small aperture, you can have at focus both feet and face. You can use a Fisheye, or a wide angle, to give more importance to the face (the feet appear smaller than normal), or a normal lens if you want a classic photo.

So, lift up your soles and smile!

    Fresh From the Lab: Take Off Your Socks and Shoes - It's Summertime!

    Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!

    The New Petzval Lens is not only known for its elegant brass exterior, but most importantly for the swirly bokeh effect it can bring to photographs. It makes a great portrait lens and performs exceptionally when taking photos of subjects against textured or lit backgrounds, day or night. And it does all these, in wet or dry weather; in any season – winter, spring, summer, or fall.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
