You may have seen my last post about the behind the scenes from my portrait photography workshop last Sunday. I thought I would share a few images from the indoor practice shoot. It was only a short session to put some of the theory into action, and then we had lunch to discuss all the techniques plus any questions. Sadly, I did not take too many photos as there was not a huge amount of space in my bedroom where we did the session, but here are a few of my faves.
I was torn between these two versions of the same image - I love the apple in the foreground that is blurred (we were talking about depth of field), but am not a fan of how it clashes with the flower in her hair so think perhaps the one below works better. But then I lose the amazing colour of her eyes so thought I would post both.
We asked Maya to change into one of my pettiskirts which are always great fun to shoot.
Maya was such a wonderful model. She was so good with all my directions and I loved her expressions as she watched eight cameras all facing towards her clicking away. It must have been quite an odd experience for a four year old, but we couldn't have been more lucky, both in terms of her beauty and behaviour. Thank you Maya for coming and being a part of such a successful day.
