For this shoot I have decided to get out of my own way and shoot under different lighting. Usually I would pick shady areas to get the smooth and soft look on the subject’s face. This time, I don’t mind putting them under harsh light and going for sunlight and shadows. I wanted to focus on story-telling instead of just a smooth portrait. It was really fun!
I love the contrast in these photos; it totally enhances the mood of the moment and makes a strong statement for my story. Also love how the fountains created misty and dreamy look in the background.
The most important thing is that I was just clicking away and all of a sudden, she leaned on daddy’s arm. My heart sank. I love making ordinary moments like this become magical!
