Lauren Elizabeth Stewart - 8Monday, November 15, 2010
The idea was to photograph Lauren, my 8 year-old granddaughter with different dresses (some were originally worn by her mother, my daughter Hilary) and with toys that mostly came from Mexico and were either given to her mother or her aunt Ale by their respective godfathers, Andrew Taylor and Raúl Guerrero Montemayor.
I have a particular liking for this first picture but Rosemary says the eyes are strange. I like it just the way it is but I scanned another and it follows. After so many years of taking portraits I have gut feelings about them. But Rosemary could be right.
I took the pictures in my living room where I set up a gray paper seamless and used one 3x4 foot sofbox with one Dynalite head. My exposures fluctuated between f-11 and f-16. The camera was a Mamiya RB-67 Pro SD and, the lenses, the 90mm and the 140mm and film was Ektachrome 100G

Yo soy la viudita, del barrio del frente me quiero casar y no sé con quién.
Con esa sí, con esa no, con esa señorita me caso yo.
