Railway Station Moment

I had thought that it might be hard to snap a child in his best emotion. Then I realized that kids always have the most honest expressions. Therefore, I did not get any significant hurdles snapping this boy. The main difficulty was just dealing with his super active movements. Yet, gratefully with one and two lures, he was able to follow my direction. Hence, from the several snaps, I chose this one as the best.

I did not purposely make this photo as fashion snap, yet it partly comes that way in natural. Although this boy looks chic in his coat and hat, I never thought this photo will look fashionable. Yet, talking about being fashionable in photography, this snap has it all. The costumes and the tones were very supportive. Kids are always cute in adults’ costumes. Yet, I did not want to erase all the childlike nuances, thus I let him bring a doll.

Fortunately, when I was taking this photo, the background nuance was in the same tone with this boy costumes. This is the most beautiful railway I found. Not only because it is so tranquil, but the nature is very pretty. I did not take much effort for this photo since the grass and plants colors are naturally brownish-green.

I intended to make a concept like coming back to the homeland and it was a success. The light of the sky was not too bright or too dim. The sky was yellowish, so it fell beautifully on the street and the grass. I think the season played the best role when I tried to create such background.

Working with this little model was quite funny. Although I did not forcibly make them with certain postures, he followed the harmony naturally. I think he is quite good in positioning his body. He was simply staring at us and bringing two items in both hands.

When you look at this snap deeper, the items in both hands impress different feeling. The suit with scratches looks mature and classic. Meanwhile, the doll impresses his cuteness. I did not tell him to bring the doll in a specific way, therefore this child focus comes naturally.

I hope in my next work with kids will come as good as this photo. The most interesting part is, of course, dressing them and indirectly luring them to make a certain pose.
