Photography Tips – Travel Photography. Captivating Tasmania

Traveling and photography becomes more and more affordable these days. Billions of pictures are taken and shared every day. So, how do you make sure that your pictures are going to tell a story to your friends, relatives and strangers on the web and truly keep the memories of what you saw, felt and learned on your travels.
Create atmosphere
The most memorable pictures are the ones which make us feel part of the action.

It could be the colour of an old man’s hat, the movement of people, the shapes on a building or the leaf on your shoe. Sometimes it is the least obvious thing; it is like a dot in a sentence making your thought complete. Notice it and bring it into the frame to tie the scene together and recreate the mood you got from the place. Use composition, light, contrast of shades or colours to make sure you accentuated the right thing.

My travel photography is quite egocentric. I tell the viewer about what the places I had visited made me feel like; and maybe the viewer can sense the same. Sometimes I skip the most scenic and popular spot but stop and take a picture of something that feels more personal and intimate to me.

Traveling is the way of exploring myself; photography is my visual diary.

Photography Tips – How to Dress for Couples/Family Shoot

Every time I have a shoot I do my best to make my clients look and feel wonderful in front of my camera. Prior to the actual shoot I send simple guidelines on how to prepare and what to expect from our time together. Here are some simple rules, which I hope will help you to look your best in the pictures!
Dress for the weather
It is no fun to be freezing in front of the camera. The cold and discomfort will definitely affect the quality and quantity of the pictures. All you will think about is wrapping up the session as quickly as possible. Being hot and sweaty can be even worse! This is why I always recommend shooting during sunrise or sunset (Golden Hour). The air temperature is pleasant and the light is gorgeous.
Dress in one style
If your pick for the shoot is a beachy and summery outfit, your partner (or children) shouldn’t be wearing a suit or dressy clothes. Such a mismatch looks awkward in the pictures. It is quite important to stick to one style: casual+casual, cocktail+cocktail, business+business.
Dress for the place
A dress, shorts and sandals are going to look lovely at the beach or park. If your photoshoot location were a restaurant, city streets or picturesque interior I would recommend wearing a cocktail dress, shirt, pants and dressy shoes.

Last but not least: pick an element, which will visually bring you together. For instance red shoes on a girl and red bowtie on a guy, blue headband and blue belt, purple blouse and purple jeans – well, you get the picture…

Choose clothes and accessories, which show your personality. Camera loves unusual things. Pick the outfit, in which you feel most comfortable and […]
