This time of year in Melbourne family photography is possibly the last thing on your mind, It’s winter! It’s cold,it’s wet,the weather’s unpredictable. Did I say it’s cold?
However here at Daryl Gordon Photography we love the light this time of year, Melbourne has wonderful cool pale light which translates to beautiful soft lighting when photographing families. Typically I wouldn’t photograph anybody outdoors in summer time from about 30 mins either side of sun up and sundown which trust me leads to some very early or late shoots which can be problematic for the younger ones, the lighting is just too harsh the UV is too high which causes harsh shadows and washed out photographs.
Winter time also gives us the possibility of dramatic skies and fresh looking backgrounds to use to our advantage.
I love winter for photography, so get out there with your gear and take advantage of Melbourne’s wonderful winter light
Here’s a few family shots done in the depth of winter to get you inspired
Happy Snapping 🙂
