The January Portrait Loop: Prisms
This year I am very excited to announce that I have teamed up with a few other photographers for a monthly Portrait Blog Circle (have a look through mine then click on the next artist to see what they've come up with). It is a way for us to try out new creative techniques and push ourselves out of our comfort zone. This month our challenge was to shoot with a prism, which is something I had never done before! Luckily I already had a prism at home which we had bought for our rainbow loving daughter (if you would like to give this a try but need a prism, you can purchase the one we have HERE.).
Due to ilnesses and bad weather I didn't get a chance to get out and experiement as much as I would have liked but the very first time I tried was during a very special newborn session (which I will also be blogging about soon) and I managed to get one that I liked even though the effect was quite subtle.
The next time I had a chance to experiement was about a week or so later and this time I brought it with us on one of our walks. It was cloudy and dark outside and not the best conditions for shooting with a prism but I had lots of fun trying and I actually love the ones I managed to get of my daughter Phoenix.
Another couple of weeks passed and this time I finally made it out to one of our favourite local spots by the sea with my little boy Forrest and some friends. This was the first time that I got to experiement using the prism with a shining sun and it makes all the difference in the world! I only wish i would have had more time to play around as I took these super quickly. I could only experiment a few seconds at a time before I would have to chase after my curious little boy and stop him from running into the sea!
And the last one I'll share with you is another one of my daughter at home, she actually wanted me to practice using it on her and of course I couldnt say no!
And now please check out Iana Chtefan Aberdeen Family and Personal Branding Photographer, the next incredibly talented artist in our Portrait Blog Circle and continue through all the artists until you get back to me!
