The other night there was some beautiful golden light filling the kitchen as the boys played. After a long, dark winter, this was a sight for sore eyes. So I grabbed the camera and spent some time photographing them as they went about their business – Max doing some art-making, and Oliver practicing his new walking skills.
I learn so much about photography when I shoot, and review the images afterwards. So I made a short video showing some of my favourite shots from the evening, and my thoughts on the shooting experience, resulting images, and the process of editing them in Lightroom.
- Pros and cons of shooting at super wide apertures
- The problems with adding too much contrast to a black and white
- How my approach to acceptable sharpness has changed
- When a dark image works (and when it doesn’t)
- And more!
Take a gander, and let me know what you think!
