Well, it’s a new year and with that in mind some promises to myself. The big one for this year……take more pictures.
I decided to run a competition that started just after Christmas and ran until Monday 9th January so I could increase those photographic opportunities. Although I was originally only offering one prize I decided to award some more prizes and this shoot is one of them.
What a little star Baby (King) Arthur is, and his older brother was a ball of none stop energy. I really enjoyed a late morning and early afternoon with the Dentith’s and got a lot of cracking photo’s for them to cherish for years to come.
On top of wanting to take more pictures I want to learn more too, and this shoot gave me lots of little hurdles which I learnt from. As with any typical winter afternoon the light was somewhat undesirable so we had to use some additional lighting (I must use my flashes more often, I forgot them today) which created some colour casts and the White Balance was off (of course this was easily fixed in post). Equally working with toddlers is great and different, getting them to stay still long enough and pose them is next to impossible so we had to use Daddy as a climbing frame once or twice. We got there though so I’m happy.
I have a few shoots lined up over the next few weeks all with something a little different. I literally can’t wait.
