Elke from Calamity Bolt asked me to do a few marketing shots for her handcraft business. She makes hobby horses and hair accessories from vintage material. I've been shooting her product photos for a year or so already. She chose me because of my unsurpassed creative expression and technical prowess with a camera...it had NOTHING to do with the fact that I am her husband, can't justify the expense of a real photographer and that I can be paid off with love! Honestly, nothing at all to do with it
Here are a few shots I managed to come up with. It was arsnic hour, kids (5yrs and 3yrs) were tired, hungry and it was a scorching hot day so I am so proud of them for doing so well as my models . Pretty tough gig all things considered and when working with littlies one really needs to be quick on one's feet
All natural light and post processed according to "client's" taste which was for cross-processed effect. I tried not to make it too obvious, though.
Any comments welcome as I know I am a long journey from perfection! I am certainly no photographic technician and am always willing to learn. Here goes...
