Environmental Portrait Photography Edinburgh

I wanted to create an environmental portrait taking advantage of the last throws of spring and Braidburn Valley in the south side of Edinburgh is a beautiful city park. So I asked Daniel and Nicola to model under the pink cherry blossom canopy and used a technique which has become known as the Brenizer method. This creates a very shallow area of sharp focus which is great way to make a portrait stand out. One thing I do is make the portrait session fun and running and waking make a good distraction.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Spring Portraits In The Meadows Edinburgh

A cold spring day in the Meadows, Edinburgh. Naa Shika has got her teeth back so time to celebrate with a portrait session using a technique discovered by Ryan Brenizer which creates a very narrow area of sharp focus and gives portrait photography a very unique appearance of a soft fuzzy background and a three dimensional look.

Engagement Portrait Photographer-Dunbar

I headed out to Dunbar in East Lothian to meet up with Juliet and Matt for a planned engagement photography session and test ideas for their wedding next month.

This is a 27 image panorama to create shallow focus.

 Although we were due a visit from the tail end of hurricane Bertha it didn't stop us from photographing ideas for the wedding day. That being said Juliet and Matt were not to concerned about a little rain and we started at the home of the bride to be before heading the church venue, where we tried out lots of creative ideas.

Capturing fun moments during an engagement session helps relax the happy couple.

I am looking forward to the main event next month.
