Klær til fotografering. Tips og inspirasjon…

wpis w: Bez kategorii | 0

What to wear for the photo session? This is the most frequently asked question by my clients.The choice of clothes and colours is one of the most important factors of any photo session.

Harmoniously matched clothing for a couple or a family will determine its success.Once we choose the location for our session, we need to match your clothing and style to the surrounding. It is going to be different choice of outfit for an urban session and for countryside, kept in rustic mood pictures. Before giving you some advice, let me tell you straight away, what you should definitely avoid:

sport`s wear and shoes, big patterns, logos and vigorous colours. We avoid anything what could be distructive. No matter what kind of the session we have planned and whether we have choosen casual or formal & elegant outfit, we need to coordinate the colours in the frame.Harmonious coordination does not always mean matching- blue jeans and white tops for family of 4 might look to matchy:). We would rather think of combination of colours that compliment each other.

Choose no more than two or three colors. Light, neutral colours and pastels always look great (whites, pale pinks, greys, beige, light blue). Prepare some adds for your outfit (scarf, hat, nice neckless or earrings, cardigan or a jacket, that you can put on for few shots)

– choose rather elegant and tidy pair of shoes ( no white shoes or flip flops)

– long trousers for him ( shorts might be good for a beach session)

– clothes should be pressed

– Coordinate your style, consider yourself as a group ( a couple, group photo)

– choose fitted clothing, oversizes will make you look bigger

– long skirts and dresses are always reccomended , will make a woman slimmer and elegant

  However what is the most important, feel comfortable first of all and enjoy the

Nyfødt fotografering – det er alltid en god tid for foto session!

nyfødt foto, baby foto, newborn photography

Photographing newborns is certainly not an occupation for every photographer. Empathy and patience are needed here. Each session is different because it is impossible to predict the mood and well-being of baby and his mother. Usually on photographer websites, we can read that the newborn session is to be performed until the 14th day after birth. I find these rules always pretty awkward, and only established for the photographer’s comfort of work. “Older” newborns might be a greater challenge, because you may not fit them into the basket and you can not expect them to be asleep throughout the session.
Well, life has its own rules and is not always arranged perfectly. Sometimes after delivery, mother with the baby must spend more time in the hospital, or she simply does not feel well .This can not absolutely mean that a newborn photo session becomes impossible. I always ask parents to follow their own comfort and well-being of baby. Also very subjective assessment of a women regarding her own look must be taken into account by the photographer. In my opinion, new moms look just beautiful, even despite of being exhausted and sleepy. Just a delicate make-up, covering up the shadows under your eyes is enough. I avoid the full plan and usually take the portraits of mother with the baby in half-close. I encourage moms to dress loose clothes in light colours. However, the most beautiful clothing in the frame always turns to be just a naked skin, and if we can persuade mom and dad to hug a naked newborn to their body, the effect of such portraits is unforgettable.

Det var et ekte eventyr! Sammen med Kasia og hennes mann dro vi til Månafossen.Til tross for den sene timen var solen fortsatt høy. Jeg var mest interessert i brede planer for å vise den vakre naturen.

Forlovelse session, Dalsnuten, Norge

wpis w: Portrait | 0

Alexandra & Roland are getting married in July. Just a short drive from Sandnes and we have found ourselves in a beautiful surroudning under Dalsnuten.The hill has an altitude of 324 m and wonderful walking paths around. I have used only one lamp and gold reflector when shooting in a natural light.Great fun, specially when I fell into the hole in a swampy ground. Watch out for the traps there:)
