For a while now I have been wanting to do a workshop with Nina Mace Photography, so jumped at the chance when an opportunity came up recently.
I love children's outdoor shoots, and this workshop was just perfect, looking at how to use light and making the best of different light conditions to bring out the best in your images.
We had some fantastic little models on the day, and started off with 3 siblings and twin boys. They were all amazing and such fun, and these images caught their cheeky little characters!
Without a doubt, the best time to have your outdoor shoot is during 'Golden Hour' which is the hour before sunset. The light at this time is soft and much more flattering to create gorgeous images with beautiful light.
Daytime sun is harsh giving strong contrasts and shadows in images, which can be unflattering and does not bring out the best in your images. If it is very difficult for you to have an early evening shoot, I would recommend a location that has plenty of shade to diffuse the sun so we can still achieve some beautiful shots.
Here are a few more from the day that were shot in the early evening, as the sun began to go down, creating a lovely soft light.
If you are interested in a lifestyle children's photography shoot I'd love to hear from you.
Please feel free to take a look at my portfolio
