Portrait Marathon and Workshop at Art Photography by Kira

Glamour, Boudoir, Natural Portrait Photography Workshop. Yesterday we had another Mini-Portrait Marathon/Workshop for ladies in our studio. We were discussing posing in front of camera: how to look better, slimmer, younger. Ways to drop 10 kg with a few posing tips in a second. What our self-esteem and constant doubts are doing to the way we think we look. Is it  really important what we see in the mirror? Or do we need a new approach how we look at ourselves in the mirror? And, of course, each lady had a portrait taken. We want to prove, that even with a little knowledge, only having 3-5 minutes to spend in front of my camera, with home-applied make-up; each lady now has a beautiful portrait to cherish for generations to come. Here are your new beautiful portraits from our workshop. Imagine what we can create together when we have much more time than 5 minutes spent with each of you? 🙂 Thank you all for your participation – beautiful women and my new friends.   Here are Before’s and After’s of our lovely ladies. “Before’s” were sent to me by participants.             Is it now your time to feel beautiful? Book your own session. Spoil your loved one. Call us on 02 96598444 or email us at: kira@artphotobykira.com.au              

Glamour Portrait Marathon in our studio

Glamour Portrait Photography Marathon in our studio, where 10 women were photographed in one hour What a marathon we had last Sunday in our studio! 10 women were photographed in one hour. I don’t remember working so fast ever!  🙂  The hardest part for me was to take only a couple of images of one person, & when only starting to get the taste of it; stop photographing her & start photographing another lovely lady. Normally I spend a couple of hours on getting to know a person, his or hers desires, fears,  fantasies & insecurities before I start shooting. Also we generally have a professional make-up & hair artist working with us, making our women feeling pampered & taken care of.  We didn’t have that luxury last Sunday. After introduction & letting our ladies know about a few tips on poses & how to look better in photographs – I basically had an hour to photograph all 10 ladies who applied their own make-up. You will see the first image, a “Before” image, that each lady sent me; then another image, that was taking by a friend right before the shoot in our studio, when each lady already had make-up on & then the 3rd image, taken during their 2-3 minutes of our speedy photo shoot. All images are taken with the same background & basically in the same pose. I wanted to demonstrate to our gorgeous women that beauty is in everyone: young & old, slim & voluptuous, extrovert &  introvert. We just have to remember it, keep our back straight, our necks stretched & our eyes sparkle with humour & compassion. Confidence is another factor in achieving a beautiful portrait. All 10 women ended up with a lovely portrait. That marathon was so popular that I have been asked  a few times already when are we going to do another one. 🙂 So maybe in a couple of months. Watch this space for the info  😉 Enjoy the samples of  “Before and Afters” 🙂       Book your session for yourself, your friend or your partner. Spoil your loved one!

“Days of our lives” at Art Photography by Kira

“Days of our lives” at Art Photography by Kira. “Before and After” “Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.” – David Alan Harvey What our eyes see versus what I saw in my mind. The light was harsh, glaring and boring in the middle of the day, but that is what happens at weddings all the time. You have to take a picture not at the time when is convenient to you, but at the time allocated to this location shot. The first picture is what that landscape looked like to the naked eye at the time. The second picture is what I saw in my mind. “Before” photo “After” photo
