Generations


I don't have the technical specs on this, but it was taken on my kitchen table with natural light; sepia setting on camera; just a little bit of cropping.

This is a list of names that I am entering for family history work. My progenitors are my heroes. I seek to have their faith, endurance, capacity to love, and ability to stay true. Working on their histories and doing their work helps me love them even more.

The other side of this story is that my father does the initial leg work to extract the names. He doesn't type very fast, and where I type 74ish wpm, it works out for me to put them in PAF(plus, not very many people can read his handwriting...). It has also brought me closer to him. He has been my hero for many years, and the more I know of him, the more that title fits.

That is such a great shot for hero. So smart to put that together!!

as for CC--maybe cooling the white balance so it was a brighter white...I love the detail in the writing.

What great heroes!!

I don't think I would have changed a thing. The natural light makes it kinda look like candle light like the old days. I really enjoy it.

Good choice on who to pick for the heroes.

For CC, I would like to see the camera held a little higher, so we could maybe find a name or two on the paper, instead of at such a sharp angle.

What a great idea- I love both of your reasons for your hero's. I like that you chose aged for it. I too would like to see it a little higher- maybe so that we could see the handwriting.
