When I was doing this for a living I used to like taking semi-formal/informal portraits of people, couples, families in my own time. It wasn't until a friend looked through my work and pointed it out that I realised that 95% of these pictures were taken with the subjects sitting on their sofas. It wasn't a conscious choice on my part. But once it was pointed out I started doing it on purpose... and so it stopped working for me. I used to have dozens but now I can't even find the negs. Two prints have just surfaced (and two of my favourites at that) so I thought I'd share. Besides, I'm sure lots of you have pictures of people sitting on sofas so this could be a good thread. I'll post more if I find them. It's the way people start to behave when they begin to get bored with what you are doing - especially children - that I liked. And the way their behaviour countrpointed the formality of the more patient adults. I particularly like the feet in the second one.
