Mothers Day, Prints, Sneek Peeks & Latest News
I've been working on several projects recently, so wanted to share some latest news.
I was asked to shoot some portraits for mothers day gifts on location. I don't shoot children and families so much any more, but when I do, I prefer doing them on location to add some life and color to the backgrounds. It can also add to the story telling. With this particular shot, I added a high key look in post processing to liven it up even more given it was a fun shot.....
One of the shoots involved delivering a high quality print which would be framed and presented as a surprise gift on mothers day. Below is a shot of the image and then the mum holding the print looking pretty pleased:
This brings me onto prints. Every few months I post a blog reminding people of the importance of prints, certainly to me, my workflow and the type of work I produce, but also encouraging you guys to get more of your work printed. It's too easy now with devices etc to capture work but never get it up on the walls. I recently posted on my facebook some refresher portraits I shot of my kids and was delighted when the enlarged prints turned up! Holding the end product in a high quality print in your hands adds a new dimension to the photography process. I absolutely love getting my projects and client work on print and receive great feedback around the quality of these.
My message as always..... get prints of your snaps up on the walls. Enlarge the high quality stuff if you can. If we work together I'll always encourage prints as an option and show you my portfolio of work in print form to give you an idea of the kind of results I'm always talking about :)
Sneek Peek/Latest News
I have a couple of projects in the pipeline that I'll be sharing results on, but in the meantime here are a couple of early portraits from those shoots. More to follow.....
I've redesigned my business cards so thought it would be worth sharing.........
Finally, my PRO FOOTBALLER backgrounds are always being revamped so if you have a junior footballer who wants to be captured in a cool, commercial looking image, feel free to check out the details of the package and get in touch.
That's it from me. Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of the week.
