Fantasy fine art portrait photography

Fantasy fine art portraits For my beautiful client and her magnificent horse, we have created this fantasy portrait she was dreaming of for a long time.  Started as an individual portrait photography of my client and her horse – finished as a painting where both portraits were combined into one.    

Beautiful outdoor portrait photography

Beautiful outdoor portrait photography When we recently visited Melbourne in Florida, I was honoured to be invited as a special guest to a Robert Vanelli workshop. It was a lot of fun and we all had a great time. The weather was not great and we had to take a refuge a few times in a very uninspiring shed, but the idea was to show the students that you can create beautiful, well-lit portraits anywhere and basically anytime. It is all about learning to see the light. I was asked to demonstrate a couple of my favourite techniques. Here are a few teasers from that time spent together, creating natural, outdoor portraits. Beautiful outdoor portrait photography – anytime, anywhere.

Back-lit portrait photography

Back-lit portrait photography One of the commonly known rules in basic photography is to avoid shooting against the sun or into the light. As if you do not know what you are doing – you will likely end up with either completely over exposed photographs or underexpose subjects and ugly shadows. If you are inexperienced photographer –  it can be challenging to figure out how to light your subject correctly in the back-lit situation. But mastering backlit photography can transform the way you shoot. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the breathtaking images you start creating.  Back-light adds drama, makes uninteresting, plain set-up exciting and magical. Soft, diffused back-light produces a romantic and dreamy effect. Ordinary becomes extraordinary! In the examples below – I have used a diffusion screen to filter strong studio light.
