Yuval in the hood

Yuval (my son) and I had couple of hours together this morning walking in Jaffa.
I was lucky as Yuval was unexpectedly in the mood to be photographed. here are the two photos I like the most (without him faking a smile :)):

Gmar Chatima Tova

My camera has been sitting in the closet for too long. Today I took it out and went for a short photography session with my beautiful daughter Hila. Below are the two pictures I liked the most.

For the non Israeli, today was Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in the jewish religion. Many people do not eat or drink during the day and nobody drives their cars, the streets are packed with people walking on the street with their kids.

Gmar Chatima Tova! (Explanation)

Sweetie Pie

For a while now I’ve been too busy and had to put photography aside. Today I had some one on one time with my daughter, Hila, and it felt like she noticed I haven’t taken photos of her in a while and she suddenly started to model for me. Once I brought the camera she took it to the next level and brought her sunglasses.

Here are photos from the session, I’m a bit rusty after not touching the camera for a while.. I dont think the photos do her justice :)

Shabbat Shalom

Uncle Eli with Tefillin.

Strawberry Picking & Hila Portraits

In the recent months I barely had time to photograph. Most (if not all) of my photos are somewhat family related. Here are some of the recent portaits of the kids.
I’m starting to use more heavily artificial lights. In the two indoors portraits I used Canon 580II flash and in the near future i plan to expand flash equipment with some umbrellas and other accessories.

Yuval in Playground

1/125 @ f/4.0, ISO 400 | Canon 5D & 50mm f/1.4 Lens

1/60 @ f/4.0, ISO 400 | Canon 5D & 50mm f/1.4 Lens

Time is flying… not too long ago Yuval (my baby boy in the pictures above) was a small baby and now he looks so mature, especially compared to his younger sister (2 months old, pictures soon).

With two kids I barely have any time to really do photography sessions, given the constraints and my passion for photography the result is more family portraits :-).

I am heading tonight to couple of business meetings in Boston for 2 days. Stay tuned for new photos…

In the picture above, Yuval (my amazing boy) slides in the playground. As you can see he’s not very clean, we just ate mulberries we picked from a near-by tree.
