    Recently forum member 369 posted a link to a blog called 'family photo journalism'. I was really taken by the concept and used the same idea and over a few days collected a nice range of photos.

    I've added a few to get started and I want you to add to the list so we can make this thread a really neat family photo compilation.

    The rules are:

    They have to be pictures of your family members. Be it from 1 day old right up.

    No direct pet shots but pets can be in the photo (family member is to be the direct subject)

    Photos have to be in black and white.

    The family member(s) need to be doing something as opposed to just a posed shot.

    Use the center function of the forum to embed the images so they are neatly displayed uniformly throughout and add a small caption about the image.

    So have fun and show us yours.

    best,
    icon

    All of these were taken with my GF1 with both the 20mm and 14-45mm lenses

    Thanks for being technical. I'm a simple man, just going with LR presets 'B&W creative - Antique Grayscale', i thought B&W means Black and White.

    Anyway, changed for the greater good.

    Thank you.

    (Sorry this doesn't appear purely B&W. I think I also used one of the BW Presets on Lightroom.)

    The first time my daughter was able to hold a make-up brush (is that what you even call it?).

    My two boys vibe a lot on their Nintendos these days. They even watch one another play when one of them is on the pot, but I won't show you that :biggrin:.

    At first I didn't see this part, and I was about to ask you what you used to capture these images. There's something there that makes the images pop - and then I saw the PL45. I hope the Oly 45 does as well as this one. Very nice images, Amin.

    One note though: one of the rules says the images should be centered. :biggrin:
