Another Family Shoot

December 1, 2010

This shoot was a bit disadvantaged from the start. It was very cold and windy, so the three super-cute kids were not terribly happy. Bring on the compositing. Usually, this is considered a sort of secret weapon, but the mom and I are working together to make a composite image that she is happy with. I'm okay with that. It has been a good experience to explore more techniques, fine-tune settings to get different elements to match, and trying to make it look natural.

The good news is that as I continue to explore Savage Mill and environs, I continue to find great locations that keep it fresh. I love having this amazing location so close to home.

What I learned from this shoot:

  • I think I'm going to save up for the 24-105 f/4 lens. I've rented it twice now and it has really been great. Hopefully next year sometime.
  • I would really like to shadow another photographer sometime to get more ideas on working with families to get kids to pay attention and pose. I do okay, but I know there are tricks I could add to my repertoire.

  1. They turned out GREAT! I LOVE the arches. YOu have done a great job finding new places when you go. Since I almost always use the same place, not NEARLY as cool, I am inspired.
