::Google+ Weekly Photography Theme “What Makes You Laugh” Recognition::
From last week’s Google+ PAC Community weekly “What Makes You Laugh” photography theme challenge, the judges have chosen to highlight Tom Speropulos.
Tom’s photo,“Bribes Only Work Sometimes” is a fantastic example of how challenging photographing children can sometimes be. Still, the right photographer with the right frame of mind will look at this situation and do just as Tom has done; capture the moment.
His image tells a great story of three very different personalities. While a crying child is truly no laughing matter, as photographers we can appreciate the humor in this situation, one in which most of us have found ourselves in at one time or another. Congratulations, Tom Speropulos!
Tom grew up in the South Phoenix/Tempe areas of Arizona. He has also called Florida and California home. Tom has worked as a photojournalist, sports, and wedding photographer. He prefers shooting informal portraits (journalistic portraiture). “I enjoy street photography and shooting people, kids, and anything a bit offbeat.” Tom admits. The photograph featured was shot during an Easter photo shoot.
Tom shoots Nikon, D300, F100, and the FE2 (known to the film shooters among us). He has been a member of the PAC community for 4 months and regularly posts there. You can also connect with Tom via his blog, http://sperosphotos.blogspot.com/and or his SMUG MUG site, http://speros.smugmug.com/. Take a moment to congratulate Tom and why not add him to your G+ circle if you haven’t already.
