Mum wanted her modern family portrait photography session to be fun and natural, so we focus our session on capturing their relationship with each other. With two young kids on the move we kept the session full of fun and games, tickles, cuddles and lots of running around. We capture how much they all love each other through their lovely big smiles and hugs.
Every one of our modern family portrait photography sessions is designed especially for you and your family, before your session we will discuss the style of photography you like members of the family to be photographed in what combinations and also get to know a little about you which allows for a smoother photographic session.
Different group combinations can be taken at the same family session so you have a full and varied gallery to choose from, with a mixture of candid and relaxed images.
Photographs are taken on a fresh white background, which gives the images a modern and contemporary look, my main aim for the session is to capture interactions between family members. Pets are also welcome at these sessions.
I have to say when the wall portrait cluster was delivered it looked absolutely stunning and amazing!.
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
“Light is beautiful and if you expose for it, it will look awesome.”
“If your pictures are not good enough you are not close enough.”
“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”
“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
“What matters is making pictures that make people feel and react to them.”
“A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.”
“My aesthetic gets simpler every year as I rely less on gimmicks and more on powerful content.”
“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
“What I’m trying to say is find ways to inspire yourself and your clients by taking on challenges and thinking fast in situations that aren’t inspiring, make them inspiring.”
“Get out of that frame of mind of trying to make someone else happy.”
“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.”
“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
“Smile a lot. Be a good listener. Don’t be afraid to go after what you want, in the photos and the business. And get a great accountant.”
The image preview your camera displays is great for checking composition, but the brightness of the image varies both with the LCD’s brightness setting and with the always-changing ambient light. Compounding the problem, the picture you see is a JPEG that doesn’t display the full range of tones captured. A much more reliable way to determine exposure is to use the histogram your camera creates with every click.
A histogram is a graph of the tones in an image. Its simplest form, the monochrome version virtually all digital cameras display, is the luminance (or luminosity) histogram. Understanding the luminance histogram will improve your photography and make reading the (slightly) more complex RGB (red, green, blue) histogram much easier.
For some, any graph has the potential to evoke flashbacks to the trauma of high school science class. But a histogram is quite simple—simple enough to be interpreted in the blink of an eye.
When an image is captured by a digital sensor, your camera’s processor creates a JPEG preview image for display on the camera’s LCD. As it creates the preview, the camera samples the brightness of each photosite and assigns it a tone (brightness) value ranging from 0 (absolute black) to 255 (absolute white). Every tone value from 1 through 254 contains detail—the higher the number, the brighter the tone.
