Is this session personal work or client work?
This is a client session. I just moved to a new area and in an effort to get my name out, gave a session away.
Tell us a bit about the magic of summer + the connection to your lens?
Summer is about taking it all in and living in the moment. It’s carefree and fun! This was actually my first session with my 15-30 and I think it was the perfect lens choice. Just about all of the images were taken at 15 mm, allowing so much of the scene to be captured while not losing the families connection.
What about this session makes it an Epic summer session?
It was shot in full sun on the beach!!! I misjudged how early we needed to be there and didn’t start shooting until 45 minutes after sunrise. It was way outside of the box and I love that it worked out.
What else is on your summer bucket list to photograph this summer?
Underwater photography and astrophotography are just two of the many things I hope to dabble in this summer.
What gear was used to achieve these?
These were shot on my Nikon D750 with the Tamron 15-30
Any summer tips or photographer advice?
Just get out there and do it, even if you are unsure. The worst thing that will happen is you don’t get the images you want and you learn what not to do. I was shaking in my boots while shooting these but they came out great. Push your limits and you will grow. Also, don’t wear jeans to a beach shoot.
