The ever beautiful Laura

PINIMAGE

 Portraiture and Portrait lighting have always been a bit of a mystery to me, it wasn’t until this last year that I started to really take portrait session seriously.

I have been lucky to work with some beautiful models and some excellent situations. I always knew I wanted to take my portraits above and beyond what you would get out of a typical professional portrait studio, Picture me Portraits or worse yet, some department store photo studio. Being innovative, unique and fun has always been the goal! With Laura I was fortunate enough to have access to a night club/bar during the day time. It was bizzarre being there during the day, but it was fun getting a new and different location that most people don’t get to explore during the day time.

For the indoor shots I played around with a Canon 580EX II flash with a Gary Fong Light Sphere diffuser on top. This made for some decent light, but it wasn’t until I took the flash off the camera and held it in one hand out to the left side that I started to get a better light and more unique portrait. After some indoor portrait fun we took it outside just in time to catch that ‘golden hour’ of light! I think these are some of my favorite portraits to date!

Oregon Coast Aquarium

Brown Sea Nettle Jellyfish

While the aquarium was absolutely packed with families, lone children and everyone else under the planet, it was still a blast! I find that aquariums are a great place to challenge yourself and your photography, you encounter numerous obstacles and have a limited amount of time to over come them and make it work. Issues like glare off the glass, children in the way, finger prints all over the glass, issues shooting in low light whilst handholding your camera. The list goes on and on, but if you take your time, assess each situation and occasionally push a child out of the way, you will be a success!
