Pushing Your Camera. A Maternity Example.

February 4, 2013


Mid last year I posted some photos of a long time client Tina and Simon’s maternity. They were one of my first clients a couple of years back and it has been phenomenal to see their family grow. As always, congratulations is in order!!

Part of working indoors is being able to correctly control the natural lighting with your own flash lighting. This can often be a challenge when you are caught between the naturally soft light and the harsh light of flashes, not to mention the off colour temperatures between the lighting. More often than not I choose to opt with the natural lighting. It can make shooting more challenging because there is a very fine balance between ISO, shutter and aperture where your photo can go from completely grainy to sharp. For me this is one of the more interesting and best parts of indoor photography. As I was looking through some old photos from 2012, I realized I have yet to post some of these photos and it dawned on me to write a a post about camera limits. I love to push my camera to the limits and be reactive to my lighting conditions. Yet, more often than not these situations make buying a new more “advanced” camera very enticing.

    You are so talented! We are so lucky to have you as a friend and have you present at all of our milestones in our life. Thank you for sharing these moments with us. As we’re watching our baby Logan grow so quickly, it was so nice to see this and look back at the pregnancy. We love you Jay!
