Family Event Photography
Did you know that Daryl Gordon Photography has Family Photography Gift vouchers for sale? More info about Gift vouchers can be found HERE. This is the story of one such family who bought a family photography gift voucher.
Family photography gift vouchers are a great gift idea. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! It’s an opportunity to get the family together and to have them professionally photographed either in the studio or on location in a fun filled relaxed manner, thus bringing out the character of the individual and family as a whole.
In this case Karen decided to use her family photography gift voucher over Christmas holidays when all of the family members had come home. That’s the great thing about our gift vouchers, they are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.
Karen and I liaised about a week out from the shoot to confirm the location, day and the time of the shoot, we are very flexible regarding arranging shoots especially outdoor shoots. (I could mention the Melbourne weather but I wont).
We decided to meet at Mills beach in Mornington at 8:30 am before it became too hot and the light too harsh. Karen was looking for a beach shoot and I recommended this beach as on the day I knew it would be protected from the weather, provide a wide range of backgrounds and some shade.
As a Professional Photographer I have many years experience photographing people and families. I have a background of working in print media for 10 years, working for various newspaper organisations on the Mornington Peninsula, I bring this level of experience to your family photography shoot. I know when to stand back with a long lens and photograph candid moments that are unfolding during the shoot. I am also able to create the energy when required to bring people together to capture the fun and family connections between people or groups of people.
Having a background in newspaper photography allows me to work within deadlines, we can keep the shoot moving, working with our clients to help organise those must get family group photos and once again to keep the energy up so that the fun and family connections are captured during these photos
:Basic Editing. During the professional photography shoot I will take a lot of photographs this is done partly to allow for the blinkers, I’ll always have someone say “every photo I’m in I’m blinking” our high end cameras allow us to take a burst of photographs each time this takes care of “the blink”. Part of our job in post production is to work through all of these and delete the images that either don’t quite work or are too similar to other images. No one needs an overwhelming number of images to sort through, so we take care of that for you.
:Individual exposure adjustments. Shooting on location family photography always has its challenges with mixed lighting sources, shadows or harsh lighting. During post production I will take the time and make the effort to balance out exposures by lighting shadow and dimming down highlights.
:Cropping. Images can be cropped creatively to add extra impact. With my experienced eye I will select images and perform creative cropping, delivering extra image so that our clients have lots of choices.
:That Creative Touch. When editing images I know that certain images can be brought up to the next level with a little extra processing into black and whites or with .other techniques that I can use. A range on individual images are chosen and given that additional treatment. More info about these techniques can be found HERE
