Twins for school & malay bride

As newbie, I thought I'd share a recent (less than a year old) photo of John and Alex.

TWINS-ALEX and JOHN
Shot in the British Army School (Brunei), using 3 lights, D3 and 70-200 f2.8 at f5.6. Been shooting the school since 2003. (Yes I shoot internationally)

Twins had to be talked to, laughed with and shared jokes to "break the ice". Finally when they started to "whisper" to themselves, the shutter went click, click, click... altogether only 10 shots. Parents chose 3.

MALAY BRIDE
I happened to be shooting with a bunch of friends on the steps next to Putrajaya mosque. I chanced upon a local photog doing his wedding shoot. I asked permission, shooting ONE shot from a distance.

D3, 70-200 f2.8 @ 1/250s f2.8 ISO2400. It was about 6.45 pm, and dark. Image also brightened, and P&P softened. Photo printed 24x36.

Your C&C most welcome.

Nice shots. One of the twins have hazel eyes and the other blue eyes...

Do read up on how to attach your images inline:

Orion-Mystery, thanks for your heads-up regarding image attachment protocol. Lots to learn, esp when I'm not so tech savvy.

About hazel eyed and blue-eyed twins, this is not uncommon. One takes after the father, who has blue eyes, and the other has his mother's genes. I can't explain genetics.

If you think this is uncommon, I once had a British client whose twins are so, one is a fair, typical caucasian, and the other is dark skinned, taking after his mother of Afro-descend.

Sorry I had digressed...but thanks for pointing to how-to image embedding. Cheers.

Mujib, thanks for your appreciation.

Regarding the eyes, please view my response to Orion Mystery. Life is indeed full of the uncommon, and fortunately, I have experienced a few of such.

FYI, the eyes of each these twins are as natural as they were born with. I'm no genome scientist to explain how genetics works this way...

Thanks for appreciating when kids come into themselves when the shutter clicked.

Fi3, it's in the eyes of the beholder. You hold certain values and when when such values appear in a photo or composition, it syncs with your EQ (emotional quotient).

I've talked to many associates and aspiring photogs that Emotions Sell Pictures. (ESP). So, if this photo of twins excites your emotion, and if you were the parents of these wonderful twins, it is my certain bet, there would be a handsome order prints, don't you think?

ESP...

Fi3, thanks for your thumbs up.

My apologies for being a very late replier. Why? Simply I have business to attend to, and children to worry about, and I am not tech savvy nor web inclined... friends of mine say I fear the web...maybe so.

Thanks again. Keep clicking.
