Family: the foremost in importance--beyond wealth, money, or power--and the foundations of our lives. Giving this role justice in a photograph is difficult. Capturing a truly warm and sentimentally robust image is difficult. However, nostalgia and memories will inundate the viewer if done successfully. It is more powerful and affecting than any other kind of photo, and its meaning will never dissipate through the test of time. I recommend a telephoto or default digital lens with medium to low aperture to make the best of the moment.
