Default The Brown Family - Mobile Studio Shots

I still really don't do studio work well but keep trying to learn more and more. Kate, the mother of the family made my wedding cake so we had arranged ages ago that I would do some family portraits for them. I made loads of mistakes, not putting a hair light/back light when using the dark background to give separation is the one that annoys me most still.

Anyway, here are a few from the session.

7


8

10


11


12

I hadn't noticed the lack of a backlight on some of those until I read your text... I like 'em!

Mark, you're awesome.
2, 3, 8, and 11 are my faves. And #4 is a photo that the whole family can be very proud of, and I'm sure you'll see hanging for decades.

What's with the blob below the chair in #1? And I wish the standing kid would have rolled up his pantlegs the way his brother did.
I wish you couldn't see the fabric line in #2, but it's almost inevitable with the kid's hand there.

Looks good, Mark. Did they specifically want the studio look over environmental portraits or was that your idea?

These are very nice, Mark! The young lady is quite photogenic. I really like the way #11 came out. Might be even better if you cropped out the light on the left. Just my opinion, I realize.

LOL, and that's the good thing that the parents/family won't either, still annoyed I didn't think about it at the time, lots more to learn when working with lights

Hadn't spotted the trouser thing.... oops. I much prefer using seamless paper but taking a 3m wide roll to someone's house is a pain LOL

They did, as it fits in with the style of other photos they have around the place, location would be my choice always though.

Feel free to ask anything, but honestly, I'm still really new at this side of things, only used lights properly about 5 or 6 times.

Thanks, I took some with both the light and without so there are options. I find that it's always best to cover off all the bases as it will increase sales. That's a reason I've used the 2 backgrounds. I offered a clothes change but they were not worried.
