A day of photography

Hi everyone,

I had the pleasure of photographing two really kick ass woman today.  I have photographed one of these ladies weddings already and I will be photographing the others in a few months.  I have been wanting to take some pictures outdoors at this local park for sometime now.  There can be some beautiful light that bleeds through the trees and I tried my best to capture that light.  I did adjust my composition several times and corrected my exposure and used an off camera flash.  It was really a fun day and these two ladies are also great friends so hearing them tell old stories was hilarious.   I am glad the ladies let me photograph them and add some pictures to my portfolio.

There were a few things I wanted to focus on.

  1. I really wanted to play around with the color of nature in the background and use that to add a different aspect to the photograph.
  2. I tried to focus on the eyes as much as possible.
  3. The models expression was something I kept battling with.  I have always been a “journalistic/natural” style photographer.  We even laughed a few times during the shoot because I really felt odd telling me to look a certain way.  I wound up scratching my lame attempt at doing that and said, “talk, laugh and just enjoy the day”.  After I did that I got some really  nice photographs that I was happy with.

I had a lot of fun today.  The photography shoot lasted for about 3 hours.  I played a lot with color in the post processing.  I was really trying to extenuate the color in a few of the photographs and I was happy with the end results.  I always feel I can do better and as my journey grows I will just keep developing my skills.

Thanks for reading and I hope you are having a great weekend!

Chris
