Charlton Lakes is so easy to use as it has the most wonderful backdrops and the willows are amazing, The lakes are so still and the reflections look wonderful.
What to expect ?
I meet Jan and Steve who are very nervous, We haven’t done any Photography work together yet so they don’t really know what to expect and their nerves show by chatting lots and laughing lots, which really isn’t a bad thing, we soon get comfortable with each other so the chatter lessens but the laughing continues.
This is actually not a bad thing because their laughter soon becomes natural as we get started and they learn that its a more relaxed atmosphere with me behind the camera.
How to interact with your couple.
I try to put them at ease with my fun loving but relaxed and informative personality and in turn their nerves soon turn to fun and enjoyment, I now see two people who are really starting to enjoy the experience.
We get started and stop at a few pre-chosen locations (I worked on this a few days before to get the best positions for them with the sun and or light that would be available to me at this time of year).
Steve and Jan soon understands the need to chat is nerves and as we chat amongst ourselves now they are taking some gorgeous relaxed shots that really show their personality and I get to know them as people.
How this creates great photographs.
This way I can build on Ideas of what I can and cant do Photography wise on the day and to be able to Photograph them as an individual couple.
They both build me a great picture into who they are and I am really pleased with the outcome.
Thanks I had a great time. we just need to choose that image to print.
