Summer of Hope Portrait Project
Here are some of the first images from the first family I'm photographing from the Summer of Hope Project. I plan to go back again to get some better portraits so hopefully the boys will feel a little more comfortable around me. The boy next to the computer is their only biological son and he's also the youngest of the bunch. The other two individual images are of the boy they adopted from the Philippines. The photograph with all four of the boys shows the other two kids they have adopted from Russia. I photographed them all together on the couch in the living room because this is where they all spend their time together. The boys aren't allowed to have much "alone" time, so they tend to congregate in this room. Any thoughts or comments are welcome. Plus, I plan to convert these to b&w...any suggestions on the best way to do this for the best results?
