I enjoy portrait photography, but not the set up kind with a forest or white background. I always find, especially with children, that if you just let them carry on with their day, the poses that you can capture are far better than trying to get two siblings to sit next to each other and smile.
My niece visited a few weeks ago, and as beautiful as she is (which just made her pics look all the better) it was much easier and the pics looked so much better while she was just playing in the garden with her dog and my son.
Once upon a time I used to take on the dreaded wedding jobs, I hated every single one of them. If your SD Card is wiped before you get them onto your computer, you have ruined a very special day, location also is a great worry, there is a registry office in the Valley’s of South Wales that I must have photographed tens of weddings there and hated every single one. A plain limestone brick building with no greenery available anywhere and what greenery there is is fenced off with a 8 foot chain link fence. Photoshop can only do so much.
anyway, here are the pics I took of my niece last time she visited. I hope you see what I mean by her playing makes for a much more natural shot.
