Singh Family Portrait Shoot 29/11/21
Last week I had the opportunity to do a portrait shoot with Mr Singh and his family. The shoot was for his daughters second birthday, which was a few months ago however the photo shoot had to be postponed due to covid restrictions.
Nonetheless the shoot still went on and it was amazing! It was hard taking photos at first, as Mr Singh’s daughter was scared of the cameras but luckily I had a few tricks up my sleeve! I grabbed a few toys which gave me some golden opportunities! Unfortunately my 50mm 1.8 lens was slightly to high in focal range than what I had preferred but I think the photos still turned out great! In the photos I used a low aperture ranging between 1.8 – 2.8 which was useful, as there wasn’t much light. When I take indoor photos I prefer to use a somewhat slow shutter speed of 1/100 – 1/250. This is useful because it means that I don’t have to raise the ISO too high, which if was too high could cause some grain to appear in the photos.
After the indoor shoot we headed to a local park to get a few photos in an outdoor setting, which turned out great. I used both my 50mm 1.8 and 18-135mm lens on two different camera bodies, which allows me to use different focal lengths depending on the situation. I used a slightly higher shutter speed as being outside meant that I had to “freeze motion” a little bit due to the wind moving things such as the balloons, clothes etc.
