Creative Portraits: Ali at Dankoff's

Eleven, almost 12, going on 25. It's killing me slowly...

Parent rant: She can text message so fast I cannot believe it. What I don't get is why not "make a call" and get it over with in 2-minutes vs. 20 back/forth TMs over the course of an hour? Am I just an ol' fuddy-duddy? (DON'T answer that!)

Anyway, I liked this one... Nikon D300, 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 in case anyone cares.

Have fun being creative with my angel (usually).

She will always be Daddy's Girl Danny (just don't forget your bat; lol). Did a Blacklight Chalk this time. Hope it works.

Bet she can out maneuver you on the computer too...8-)

Anyway me thinks you are too close to the subject to appreciate, (or tolerate), anything we do to this image, but if I don't have anything else I've got guts. So here goes.

Danny, she's beautiful! Got the shotgun behind the door? :-)

I went with a more traditional chalk portrait look. Hope you like it.

Great looking young lady. I remember when we did one a few years ago.

Danny look after this girl. But I can't condone all the violent methods mentioned above.

Re: Creative Portraits: Ali at Dankoff's

I think text-messaging is done because 1- It's a cool toy and 2- It's not a "conversation"; it's more just sending statements back and forth. The statement should be in a cool, hip, ironic, snarky, trendy or slangy form. Most phone calls require at least some substance or purpose.
Typing lol vs. actually responding to something funny.
