I recently spent a fun morning in Dulwich park, South East London taking photos of this little charmer. Lewyn is such a sweet little boy - really easy going and so smiley. He was feeling a bit under the weather on the day we arranged our photoshoot, but as soon as we got to the park he was happy to show off his newly acquired walking skills and enjoyed riding his little red scooter. We finished the photoshoot with a few cozy captures at home.
Late winter/early spring is a great time for outdoor photography. The overcast days, although slightly depressing looking, work really well in photography as clouds diffuse the light to give even lighting on the subjects. Lack of colourful plants and flowers make it easier to find areas where colours are part of the same family, avoiding introduction of primary colours such as red, green and blue into the background. Although these colours can work great in photographs, their presence in backgrounds requires special attention as they can draw focus away from the subject. Bare tree branches and trunks come in a variety of brown, ochre and green tones. These, together with green tones of evergreen plants are a part of the same colour palette which work lovely as a simple backdrop. Placing your subjects in a scene where colours are similar will create a visually pleasing photograph, and will make your subjects the main focus of attention.
Capturing family memories is great any time of the year. If you would like to book a session in your area, park or in the comfort of your home, please contact me through my website, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
