Since I am late posting this theme, I decided to check out all the other male shots submitted for this theme to try to get some inspiration. (You can see them all at http://www.photofriday.com , I think we have a link on the sidebar of the blog.) There were so many wonderful close up portraits with tons of character. I knew I didn’t have anything like that in my catalog and the men in my family put up with enough photography that I didn’t want to ask them.
My next thought was a photo of my dad with a map since men rarely look at maps. It doesn’t matter where we are, my dad is the go to map guy. I have even started to grab a shot of him and his maps every time we are at a theme park or on vacation. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any because my photos are still being re-organized from “the great computer clean up of 2013”. (5,000 of the 40,000 done so far)
Moving on to idea number 3. Hockey. At this point, I decided to just go with an action shot. In this shot, I like the skates in the air, the ice flying, and the give it everything you’ve got feel. It wasn’t my first idea but it will get the theme done. – Diane
