Danny Ray and His Violin by KeelyWeisPhotography Danny Ray and His Violin by KeelyWeisPhotography
It took us months to find a day where we were both free, and when it was snowing, but today the stars aligned, and Danny and I got to do this mini-session outside my apartment.

I can't say these shots were exactly what I was shooting for, because the weather decided not to cooperate, but I still rather like them. :)

Model: Danny Ray
Location: Outside My Apartment
Photographer/Editing: Me

Wonderful photograph! I love everything, from the background to the snow flakes to his pose to lighting behind him. :D Really great work on this. It must have taken a lot of time and patience to wait to get the opportunity to take the photos. And congratulations on the DD!

He played snippets classical things here and there. It was probably happy birthday or something silly like that.

I really like this for both the way it was shot and because...well, sometimes violinists don't get much spotlight- it always seems to be guitarists and drummers...:shrug:

A great thing I also like is his facial expression; I was always told by my violin teacher before a performance "remember to smile, like you're having fun!" which is always annoying because she'd want me to smile, but also focus on the music sheet (she hated when I would focus on my fingers!)...but here, he isn't smiling and yet you can clearly see he's son engrossed in what he's doing (which goes to show I was right when I told my teacher I didn't have to smile to show I was enjoying myself) AND, he's looking at his fingers and just looks so intense, like he's enraptured by the music he's making :)

Listen kiddo, I know you're like 16 and all and don't totally understand how Internet etiquette works, but threatening someone's life because they reported your spam on their artwork doesn't fly out here. Nonsense like that doesn't make you cool, and it doesn't make you sound tough. Okay? I'm sorry, but stuff like this qualifies as harassment, and that warrants a user abuse report.

I like his contrast to the background, how the light creates an illumination that kind of pops him out of the scenery around him...
