japanese inspiration

i've been swamped with so much design/illustration freelance work lately that my photography is lacking! i shot a few things for Blush over thanksgiving, but want to make some new goals in the new year to shoot consistantly. i just ordered the new canon 50d, as i have to wait for the husband to graduate and make some $ before i can go full professional with the 5d mark II. i found these images on flickr, by Akihiro Futura. I have felt creatively stumped in the past with family portraits, because in my mind, people sitting or standing together seems a little boring, even with a more creative backdrop. These images sparked some great inspiration, for creating creative portraiture with props, matching clothes, gestures, etc. Matching outfits (ie women's dresses) was so outdated, but I think w/a modern twist it might come back and be pretty rad. These are some of my favorites. Email me to schedule January/February family portraits.

those are pretty creative photos - I like them a lot. The 50d. you'll have to let me know how you like it! I'm still getting used to my nikon - have you used Nikon before? If you lived in the white space up here I would totally ask you to shoot some of me and Mark - we are in some desperate need of portraits! :o) I'm looking forward to what you come up with.
