Ok, so back in July I shot Jen Eustace in some fields somewhere around Shaftesbury. Here are the rest of the pics that came out of that shoot. Summer Portrait Shoot.

As luck would have it, there was also a chair to be utilised. Summer Portrait Shoot.

She's looking for more photographers to take pictures of her for her folio, so if you have a good idea for a shoot and you're in the area look her up.

Why do people insist on ruining other peoples photographs?

by Robert Whetton 12. August 2010 18:45
What am I talking about?

Last Sunday it was Rachel's brother's birthday and the whole family went to Moors Valley and rode on the train (I can't fit on the train), I thought it would be good to get a shot of everyone on the train waving. So off I ran to the bridge that crosses over the rails just after the station, set my camera and waited.
Then as the train drew toward the bridge, Max bless him shouted "now" and everyone started to wave, I rattled off a shot or 4 and a quick look at the back showed that I'd nailed exposure and had good framing.

However what I didn't see until I downloaded the cards was a man with his daughter just behind Dave flipping the bird throughout the series of shots! I had no idea the local hospital had let the retards out on day leave..

If this had been a family who had come down from up north, or the family was scattered all over the country and had met up, these shots would have been ruined because of a thoughtless idiot..
Good job that I know Photoshop inside out!

So there are 2 ways to deal with this, you can Crop the image and remove the offending person.

The other way is if you want to keep your original framing, and involves some careful manipulation of the original photograph.

Summer Portrait Session with Jen Eustace in Dorset

by Robert Whetton 29. July 2010 01:57

Yesterday I should have been in the heart of the New Forest at about 4.30am taking photographs of Deer in the morning light. I should have been, but the event was cancelled and my day scuppered.. So instead I took the time to take Jen out into the countryside nr Shaftesbury for some summer portraits. I'd spotted some nice fields last week when travelling to a Rhythm & Dance class to take photographs for their new website. Just a couple of shots up for now, I need to prepare some other work before heading off on holiday on Sat (my first holiday in 5 years! so looking forward to it)
