A few weeks ago I went to Australia to run two outdoor natural light photography workshops. Once there, I was invited to do the family photoshoot of this beautiful family. It was and incredibly cold day in Melbourne when I went to do the family photoshoot of Kath (one of world's best known newborn baby photographer) , John and little Miss. Piper. But when John started to strum the guitar... it almost felt like the skies magically lifted up and sun shone from behind them. It became incredibly sunny amidst the gentle breeze... ... and they all sang together... for hours they held each other and sang while I stood dangerously on moving waters to take pictures. Everything stood still
Chloe is a photographer herself and we first met when she attended my outdoor natural light photography workshop. When she messaged me to say she wants me to photograph her newborn baby girl... I was over the moon and a little worried too. Haha!! its difficult to please us photographers honestly. But Chloe loved the images. I took them to a stunning location in Dartford, Kent.... very close to London in a natural setting with a river flowing and some gorgeous swans... it was incredible to say the least.
So here's a video tutorial for you where I am showing how to wrap a newborn baby. This little cutie is 21 days old so honestly, this old myth of "I only do shoots for babies who are 15 days old or less" is just that... a myth. If you learn how to wrap well, Well! you can photograph babies up to a month and a half by wrapping them. The baby on the banner of this post is 1.5 months old and I didn't say to her mum, "no I can't photograph her cos she's not a newborn anymore." Nope! I just wrapped the baby. Here are some shots from my shoot of which I am showing the video
Here you go, Thats the SOOC (straight out of camera) image of my beach shot. I have given you some amazing tips for you to shoot at the beach. As promised, here's the FULL EDITING VIDEO TUTORIAL of this image http://butnaturalphotography.com/store/products/beach-shot-editing-video-tutorial/
Hi everyone, I have been asked several times to share some of my editing techniques and that's exactly what I am going to do today. I am going to show you the edit of one of my absolute favourite images. I shot this image of my daughter and my dog in my home on the kitchen top. I placed them right next to the window to be able to use the available natural light that was coming through the window. I then used my Nikon D800 with the 50mm f1.4g lens. I shoot wide open here at aperture f1.4. My shutter speed, ISO and all other EXIF data will be given to you in the video when you watch it.
