Yesterday I had a very fun photo shoot. It was a special photo shoot because it was with my favorite four.
My favorite four niece and nephews.
I received a text last week from my favorite (and only) brother buttering me up (brothers are good like that.) He asked if I’d come do a family shoot for them some time soon while there are still leaves on the trees. And of course I said, “yes!”
I haven’t had a lot of experience photographing people – as you can tell, I primarily focus on landscape and old structures. But I love to get practice and who better to practice on, but my family?
So I spent a couple of hours dragging them across their acreage to different locations I had scouted out when I first arrived. I’m really hoping I captured some good shots as I haven’t even looked through 400 plus yet. In the few I have, I’m already noticing some things I need to do different “next time.” After all, this was practice, right? And I’m learning.
I am quite certain you will see a number of photos of my wonderful family over the next few days (and weeks, perhaps) and I just ask that you have mercy on me. Please, graciously give me your advice and suggestions on areas I need to improve for the future. Remember, I’m always learning but this is one particular area of photography that I need all the help I can get!
One of the first I captured and definitely the first I’ve processed…my favorite four:
