Live, Love and Laugh Your Way Through Life

Welcome again to – Or maybe it’s your first time here! – If so why not check out my About Me Page and get to know Phogropathy a bit better!

I’d just like to say that I’m absolutely loving my 50mm f/1.8 and today’s photograph is one of the first times I was really able to take it out and experiment. Of course, it was also my first time with a model, so things were a bit rocky. Today’s photograph is one of those breaking the tension moments if you will – hope you like it!

Daily Photo – Live, Love and Laugh Your Way Through Life

As promised here’s another photograph from my recent session photographing Alycia, my first model, if you missed it you can see the first portrait I posted here.

Throughout this session I kept the conversation going with random stories about photography, ideas for poses, and of course jokes. I knew that we were both going to be in a place that we weren’t exactly comfortable and I wanted to use that uneasiness to my advantage rather than as a hinderance. After all this was new to both of us of course it wasn’t going to be easy!

By keeping the mood light and fun I was able to settle into a groove and get the most out of the session. I think I was even able to come away with a few quality shots for a first time outing.

This particular shot was taken after a rather funny moment allowing me to capture a simple, yet pure, laugh from Alycia and is one of my personal favorite shots from the entire session – I hope you like it as much as I do!

    It might just be my computer, but your new header is not showing up at all. Just thought I would let you know.

    Is it just me, or is she wearing way too much makeup on her face? Makes her look pale and unhealthy. She would look better without.

    • To be honest I think that’s probably more my camera skills in shooting portraits than the model wearing too much makeup. I don’t think she was wearing much at all to be honest.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Great work! For a first time with a model, or for any amount of times. You’ve captured a beautifully genuine moment of laughter, and have done so with wonderfully artistic results. As well as your pretty model, I love the framing and colours of this, as well as the DoF. Well done!
