My kids normally get this look when I bring out the camera... It's something that looks like a deer in the headlights, and a panicked look of having no where to escape to... sigh....
Anyway my eldest daughter must have been a good mood, when I asked her to come over so I could just "try some stuff out". They generally know when I want to "try some stuff out", that they have to do as they are told, and not moan about me making them pose, which to them "feels weird"!!! I have tried to explain that photos just don't happen, so its good that I can use them as guinea pigs, and get an idea of what works. I think these worked... I wanted to "try some stuff" with backlighting and some posing techniques .... And thanks to my daughter Emma's flatmate Jay too... I know it felt strange, and you felt self conscious, but you look fab. See! Trust me!
I wanted to extend the background on this image of Emma, which I love ... so....
Colour or Black and White? I couldn't decide!
I've got lots of props and fabric and things to dress up in too....
I love negative space... leaves you room to play around with textures and things!
Keeping them on task was at times... erm ... trying....!
And then it kind of all went to custard, when Emma got hold of the camera... grubby mirror and all...!!! But we manage to have a laugh... and so will you... book in for a glamour portrait session... You will even have your makeup up and hair done! email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or you can even find me on facebook.... here
I believe in working with you to create images you will love, and cherish, because "It's all about you!"
