In Studio: Trent Family

Back in October we set up our home studio to welcome in the Trent family. They were some of our first clients a little over a year ago when we started shooting, not for money, but for gift cards to restaurants! Needless to say, this awesome family of four has been an incredible blessing to get to know over the past year. 

This year, father and husband, Asim, was hoping to do something a little different. He came across a portrait we made and posted on our social media, which resembled the Platon aesthetic. Just being told that our portrait made him think of the famed British photographer, Platon, was encouraging enough--so, to be summoned to shoot individual, family portraits in that style was a real treat.  

One of the advantages of working in-studio is tethering our cameras to the computer. We tether our Sony A7RII camera bodies to our iMac via a Tether Tools cable and use Capture One Pro 10 for Sony in order to bring the images in and apply some preset processes to each image--this is so that the models can get a feel for what the final images will look like. We ended up delivering 9 images in total--in both color and black & white for each. These four are our personal favorites! What do you think? The opportunities for wall art made from these images are very exciting--framed individually, side-by-side in one long panoramic image, or even in a 2x2 layout within one square frame would be pretty cool. We are excited to see how they decide to frame and display their portraits.

Sade in SoHo

Last week we made a trip to the east coast, which gave us the opportunity to link up with our friend, Sade, a lifestyle and fashion blogger. We caught up with her in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. With infinite street, wall and storefront textures, we had a blast creating different looks to compliment Sade's wardrobe changes. We shot using all natural light through either our Sony Zeiss 55mm 1.8 lens or GMaster 85mm 1.4 lens. Check out a few of our favorite images! 

In spending a little over an hour in a three block radius and having two wardrobe changes (three total looks), we were able to deliver about 60 semi-edited images! Sade was an excellent client to work with as she was able to work the camera both candidly and posed. Do you like her style? Well, wait until you read her words! You can catch up with Sade via her blog at www.conversationsbeyond.com.

Kai and Mommy

Our fall mini-sessions last week were partially thwarted by mother nature. However, we were able to get the morning sessions in with spurts of sunshine and some cool, fall breezes before the afternoon's rain. Check-out the images from our 30-minute shoot with Kai and his mom, Giulia. We brought a stool and some autumn leaves out to City Park in Denver to create the seasonal look and feel. 

These photos were all taken with natural light, with a pretty good amount of cloud cover. We had a blast throwing leaves in the air and chasing this guy around the park.

If you're interested in a mini-session or a full-length family shoot, we would love to get on the phone with you to make it a reality. It'll be time to send out holiday cards before we know it! Please shoot us an email or give us a call--hello@norwoodfoto.com | 720-618-4470
