The story behind the image

This was another of my Breastfeeding Project shoots, the idea was to have a beautiful outdoor location with mother & child glowing with the sunset. I had an ideal ‘look’ for the project, I wanted movement in hair with a breeze and therefore had in my head that long, wavy hair would be perfect for that wild, free and natural look. Gemma (model mother) got in touch and volunteered for the project, she is a local photographer to me and as I was new to the area and keen to meet my colleagues I jumped at the opportunity to work with her.

the image was initially taken as a central crop and then cropped to thirds in post. My subjects cross both the lower third and the right hand third lines.

Describe how you spoke to your subject(s)

It is sometimes hard to focus during this time of day, especially when shooting with a diffusion filter, however because it was early on in golden hour it allowed a sharper image than later on in the shoot would have.

Light & Weather

I adore shooting directly into the sun but wanted that softer light and beautiful sunset, so golden hour was the obvious choice for time of day/lighting. I backlit my subjects for added interest and for an added softness/cinematic feel.

Editing Workflow

How did you edit this image?

I cropped the image, applied the preset and profile, corrected the white balance (which warmed the image up correctly for that lovely sunset) to auto and added a gradient brush of light coming from where the sun is located on the right of the sky which gave some fill light and a lovely gradient across the whole image.

Because it wasn’t technically part of the shoot, just a quick, cute moment caught the sky was brighter than I would usually have liked.

Watch your clients for the little in-between moments of a shoot. There are so often little gems of interactions that occur that are so easily missed so keep your camera ready for them!
