Semi-Spontaneous Portraits

Brooke & Jody McClosky

For the past few years, my walk-around camera has been a Fuji XT1. It is mirrorless, so lighter and more compact than my Canon 5D’s. It isn’t fast, though, and I use it mainly for scenics and posed photos. It’s not good at capturing our dog or our grandson in motion, but when I see something interesting along the road, I hit the shoulder and pull it out. Or, when I am in a closing with a real estate client, I like to grab a shot for Facebook. Last Friday, I went to Jacksonville to close with two people I like a lot…a young couple I’d helped find their first home. Now, with two little girls, they are moving home to Rusk and selling their home in Bullard. We closed in the old formal dining room of the John Wesley Love home, now an office for East Texas Title. So I posed them in front of the big bay window overlooking the old orchard that had made the Love’s wealthy (he was known as “The Peach King”) and again in front of the massive chandelier.
