Grant’s Senior Pics

Here are a couple of images that I really liked from a photo shoot I completed this past weekend. These are Senior pictures that were taken at a park in Coppell, TX.

Like I mentioned before…I’m doing more photography than I intend. However, I look for opportunities to take pictures that have a sense of story to them.

A problem I am experiencing in this world of digital photography is that it is important to have excellent equipment. I use a laptop at home to edit images…then I look at them at work and my color balance can seem all over the place. Then I print them and….well you get the idea. This sometimes isn’t a big deal since I had been taking photos for personal reasons. But as people hire me for projects, it is important to produce what they see on screen.

Feel free to leave tips on how I can workaround this issue until I make enough to buy new equipment.

Okay….so I’ve been doing a lot of photography…a lot!

I’ve done family photos…graduation photos…prom photos…and pet photos.

I think it’s because it’s so easy in this day of digital photography to shoot away and then edit in Photoshop. Also, I have an excellent assistant who has done a lot of photo editing for me.

With photography as an artistic form it is important for me to play angles and lighting. In this particular shoot, with the dogs, I had a situation where the flowers were very “short” at maybe 6 inches in height. So I lowered the camera and shot at an angle that helped the field to look fuller with flowers. The low position also helped the flowers to look larger and more prominent.

I had a great time and now also a great memory.
