I have a million pictures from Kenya that I'm going to want to share, but most of them are still sitting in my Lightroom uncatalogued and untouched. The process for picking out my favorites is going to take months I'm sure.
However, I have gone through some of the pictures from my trip to the school in Kenya. I LOVED the school and could have spent the entire trip there. As a people photographer, and a teacher, it was just amazing for me.
It was so fun to lock eyes with the children across the way, really see each other, and then capture that moment on camera. Seriously..powerful. Sorry about the overload of pictures, but there were so many memorable things I just have to share.
Most of the photos inside the classrooms used bounced flash...a couple were natural light only. The rooms were VERY dark.
1. Locking eyes with a child through the broken window glass of the classroom.
2. We went to each classroom and every class sang for us. I just loved the smile on this little girl's face.
4. My favorite classroom shot, and perhaps my favorite shot from the entire trip to Kenya. This is taken through another broken window. The visiting group had left this classroom and I snuck behind to get a picture of the students back at work. This little girl caught me and turned around. I love everything about this picture.
12. After the performance as the children were lining up to go to lunch. In a sea of children, this little girl and I locked eyes and she just beamed. My 2nd favorite picture from the day at the school.
