Hey just wanted to share an image I just did today of my son who I’m very proud off. Needed a model and I made him volunteer lol…well actually I have to go buy him some stuff after this but hey who cares.
Black and white image, when I first started in photography I loved the black and white using just natural light, since then I usually shoot everything with strobes. But I saw a video on photography and this guy said what got you into photography what was that inspiration, what images did you want to create.
Honestly it was black and white portraits using just natural light no strobes. I’m going to get back into now because that’s what made me passionate about photography. You should always stick to what you love and forget those haters who call people who shoot natural light, an excuse for not learning flash.
My advice to any photographer wanting to join the business, start out using natural light, understand the light and the direction its coming from, and also the time of day which light is best for your style, then after you’re mastered it then venture into flash, strobes and video light.
That’s enough all this thinking is making my head hurt haha… check out my shot.
Sorry for being a day late was a bit busy here’s an image I did with the Lovely Angelina with one light on here right side and the camera on the left.
Shoot in front of a white screen, the background is a stock photo, used the Topaz plug-in to create the gritty look.
If you have any questions about the image feel free to ask and I’ll get back to you asap.
Yes people still alive, sorry for not updating anything before the end of the year…reason was that I was busy and sick too couldn’t be help but I’m a little better now and I hope you guys had a great Xmas and New Year.
Oh well about what’s happening with me I’m off next week overseas to shoot a wedding and when I get back I got another wedding to do. Not a bad start for the year. This would be my second and third wedding I’ve ever shot and some people have this notion I have a knack for it, even though I’m not a big fan of it.
Not trying to put the wedding photography down just not interest in it. But when people offer me money to shoot it and persist in annoying me then what can you do..
I know some of you guys will be annoyed with that especially the wedding photographers but, the first wedding I shot was just a favour to a friend whose photographer did not show up to the wedding, and luckily I had my second camera which is a classic Canon 20D that I really love. And so the next three hours I shot his wedding trying to remember what wedding photographers shoot, for example I knew that took pictures of the cards, flowers, cakes, families, bridal group and the ceremony, I use my skills as a portrait photographer to help me out.
Long story short everything work out and the Bride and the Groom love their images, since then I’ve had referrals from people at that wedding that saw their images.
Well I’m off getting tired now and I hope to show the images of the weddings I shoot, until then I’m going to just share my first image in 2013 tomorrow ok. See you and take care.
