I have a thing about asking people to smile for photos. I don’t do it. The best way to get natural smiles is to photograph people who are already happy, fun people enjoying themselves while I photograph them. I’m lucky cos most people I get to photograph are seem relaxed in front of my camera; maybe not immediately, but shortly into the shoot they realise that actually having their photo taken is pretty easy and we end up having a great time getting images at whichever location we find ourselves in.
Lorraine & James get married next month and we spent an hour on Easter Sunday walking the streets of Birmingham looking for cool places to shoot. Here’s just a taste of what we came back with… “Say Cheese!”
Sometimes you never know what might happen when you set up a shot…
Can’t wait for the wedding guys. Don’t forget to smile! 😉
