Monthly Archives: August 2015
Two families that spend a lot of time together overlapped their sessions in an idyllic location near to where they live. Love taking photos of all of these guys.
Another summary from a couple of shoots in Basel back in the Spring.
This week started with a photoshoot. In fact, I have three photoshoots this week, so I might be using pictures that I like from those shoots and sharing some insights. The fortnight continues…
Day 8: Mother and Daughter
It’s always good to get a more creative angle when you are taking portraits, I love that my 50mm can focus on just one plane and everything else is a creamy blur of colours. It was also quite windy on this shoot and all the girls were in pretty dresses, so it’s nice to crouch down with mum and get a bit of a cuddle.
Day 9: Pets (Our pet house bunny Hazel)
Never work with children and animals, isn’t that what they say? They are my favourite to work with, I wonder what that makes me?? I have no child in the house at the moment, so my focus for today was on taking photos of our pet house rabbit Hazel Bunny. Trickier than you might think as she wanted to get a bit closer than I intended (i.e. hopping on top of me as I try and take a photo, whilst lying on my back). Here is our beautiful bunny:
Day 10: Long exposures
I’ve wanted to do something with stacking photos for a long time. Often you see them done with stars in the night sky (when you see the circular trails as the earth moves and they don’t). Well, I just pointed my camera out of my attic window at the road outside my house and took a few hundred long exposures. I then deleted all the ones that didn’t have any moving lights in them and stacked the rest. I’ll definitely be doing this again, but with perhaps something a bit more interesting. Here’s my picture:
Day 11: Erm…
Day 12: Profiles
It’s often some of the first and last photos that I take at a shoot that I love the most. This one was taken at home whilst daddy was getting ready and I was drinking my cup of tea. I just love these kinds of shots. Beautiful.
Day 13: Wonderful Indian colours
What a beautiful party! I have always been a big admirer of sari’s and the way that Indian women dress. I love colours and textures and fabrics and sari’s are just wonderful, then add the jewelry and bindi’s, well! These were taken at a well attended event for a special little girl. Everyone looked wonderful and I even got to borrow a sari!
Day 14: Coming soon!
