Portraiture

I recently got the chance to go and spend a Sunday morning with these two cool little guys. We were originally slated for the Saturday, but the stormy weather put paid to that. The light was interesting as it was rather overcast but still kind of harsh at the same time. There was a cool, old white barn by Cassie and Andrew’s house which I used as a big reflector with the backlit shots. It also provided some interesting texture with its peeling paint and rusty metallic outhouses. Anyway, here are the picks of the shoot.

Geek info: Canon EOS 5D Mark II with Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM and EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM lenses and Canon EOS 50D with EF 85mm f/1.8 USM and 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM lenses

Last weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of photographing a very special person indeed: my lovely wife, Cristel! You'd think that with her being married to a photographer, she'd have been in front of my camera quite a few times before, but the truth is that this was the first time we'd ever set out to take "proper" photos of her in our studio. Up till now, it's been mostly about the kids and we've been endlessly procrastinating, waiting for such a day when we could set aside the necessary time to do it properly. So, with the excuse of Cristel needing a new headshot for her newborn photography website amongst other things, Cristel went and an ...

I've spoken before about the use of light and it is something I try to focus on with my work, especially during portrait sessions and the times of the day when we have some time to actually go out and "make some pictures". On the wedding day itself, however, time is normally a precious resource and it's not always easy to conjure up nice images out of thin air. There are many factors to work with: light, trying to work out how to make the most of the environment you are in, distractions from the wedding party itself, etc. This week's image is a good example of how just a little bit of legwork and thought can help find a great spot to work wit ...

The final part of my triple-header of shoots last Sunday took me to my old stamping grounds in Cincinnati, OH. Ault Park to be precise. This place has a lot of great memories for me, including a certain office party almost 10 years ago where far too much alcohol was consumed and I ruined a perfectly good tuxedo. Anyway, if you'd told me back then I would be working as a photographer now, I would have probably told you (in a slurred English accent) you were slightly barking. But so it is, and so it was that I spent last Sunday evening dodging the storms and taking photographs of Lily and Josie and their mum and dad, Christine and Nick. The ...
