AMANDA, WILLIAM & MATT
Recently, I’ve taken my photography skills up a notch. I’ve finished a few courses online, watched a MILLION youtube videos (what else is new?) and I’ve been practicing a lot. Petie isn’t always the best model because he wont stay still BUT… I’ve found a few volunteers and I’ll be sharing my shoots with you on my blog.
First up… my very FIRST photo shoot! My good friend Amanda, her beautiful baby boy William and her hubby Matt volunteered to stand in as my models. Did I luck out or what? Are they not the most adorable little family?!
I met Amanda and William for a quick hang out before heading over to a local park in Brantford. I was really hoping we would get some sunlight so I could play around with the light hitting my lens. Our shoot started off quite cloudy but eventually the sun peeked through and I was ecstatic! Some of my favourite photos are the ones with the sunlight in the background.
You’ll notice in the photos of just Amanda and William with the black background… they have a bluer tinge to them. Those photos were taken directly in front of a bedroom window. Obviously more natural blue light was present. In the following photos of Matt, Amanda and William in the nursery you’ll notice the yellow hue. That’s from the tungsten lights. Obviously these things can be adjusted and altered in editing. Let me know what you think!
If you have any photography tips to share I’d love to see them in the comments below. I’ve got a special post this Monday so stay tuned (And NO I’m not pregnant lol).
Until next time,
