About Doug Hanson Photography

I’ll be honest, wedding photography wasn’t my first choice within the various photographic fields. It wasn’t my last either, but wasn’t something I thought I’d ever do. When I started seriously taking pictures in 2007, I loved documentary and commercial/fashion photography. That’s what I wanted to do. Not long ago, however, I realized that wedding photography could combine both of these passions. So now, I’ve embraced this path and am loving every minute of it.

There are a lot of really talented photographers out there. I’m very humbled and thankful that you’re here either thinking about hiring me, or looking at some of the finished pictures you gave me the opportunity to take on one of the most important days of your life.

Jessie’s Senior Pictures

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

Jessie is my sister-in-law’s little sister. They asked if I’d do her senior pictures – I have a hard time saying no to family so agreed. Jessie’s clearly a beautiful girl, and she’s
got a constant smile on her face. No matter how hard I tried to get her to give me a serious pose, there was always a hint of a smile. Due to some timing issues, we had to spread the shoot out over a couple of days. The first day, we shot with the fall leaves as our backdrop. The colours of the leaves in New Brunswick in early October are always vivid and diverse so they make a fantastic levitra buy us jelly backdrop. The second day, we drove to the beach and shot a bunch of different settings. The second day, you could really see Jessie get more comfortable with having her photo taken. If only the business model allowed for all senior shoots to take place over two days, I think it would give teenagers more of a chance to get used to having a camera in their face. Oh well, I don’t plan to shoot many senior sessions anyway and I’m not about to try to change the process for everyone else.

Here are a few

shots from both days. Enjoy!

Day 1 – I love portraits that are this tight. Depending on the lens being used, it can make the subject acheter sildenafil pfizer tarif a bit nervous because you might be right in their face with the camera, but with a wide open aperture and this close, I love the effect of the blurred background and how it makes it impossible to mistake the focus of the image.

For the next shot, we’re in the exact same location, but I was shooting from a bit further away and closed up the aperture just a bit so that you can more easily make out that the background is made up of leaves. Still blurred enough to not be

distracting from Jessie’s smiling face.

You know your model is getting more comfortable when they decide it might be fun to climb a tree. :-)

We decided to head to a field that was located down the

road from the first location. On the way, the light was perfect and wind was keeping Jessie’s hair blowing behind her. Seemed like a waste not to capture a few candid shots on the way to the next location.

Like the first shot, but in a new location. I love the emphasis that this type of framing puts on the eyes. Of course, making sure they’re open is also important. Jessie thought it felt weird to open her eyes that wide, because it’s not natural, but it

makes such a big difference in the final picture. I’m glad she trusted me to do it, even if only a viagra sans ordonnance few times.

This is the reason I think Jessie had such a hard time keeping her eyes wide open. She had a smile on her face the entire time and laughed almost on command. While there’s less focus on the eyes in this type of shot, it’s more real. And I’ll take real over “perfect” any day of the week.

A little extra post processing on this shot. Not for everyone, but I like the softness of it.

Day 2 – We headed to a small beach about 25 minutes from Moncton. It was a great location with lots of tall grass, some big rocks, and of course lots of sand. The light on the second day was much more harsh and of course, it was almost noon when we arrived. Regardless, I love the shots we got – for their diversity, colour, and mostly because Jessie really started getting comfortable in front of the camera.

A couple of options with a similar soft post processing technique.

It’s all in the eyes!

One of the more serious expressions I was able to catch. Then a wardrobe change. I asked Jessie to walk toward me while I snapped a dozen or so pictures in rapid succession. While she looks a little

off-balance in some of them, the expressions are real and I think the shots are playful and casual.

I occasionally try to add a 70’s style to certain shots. It works for some, not https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/achat-viagra-cialis-levitra/ for others. For the

beach, it just always seems to work. Again, not for everyone, but sometimes you just have to do things for yourself – and of course, I still have the originals.

It was hard to pass up getting some shots on the rocks piled up along one side of the beach (on the other side, there was a small pier with some fishing boats). Of course, as Jessie was climbing out to this spot, I started having second thoughts. It didn’t look terribly safe. A fact that I confirmed myself when I had to climb on a few rocks to get the right angle. I shot this from a distance with a long lens and medium aperture (f5.6).

It was time to get dirty. But not just the model… I spent the rest of the shoot on my stomach laying in the sand. The light https://www.viagrasansordonnancefr.com/viagra-cialis/ is pretty harsh here, softened a bit with a reflector buy levitra nz real (manned skillfully by Jessie’s sister). I really like the backdrop here.

One last wardrobe change and we swung around to get the water in the background. The shot on the left is one of my favourites from the weekend. The one on the right sums up the shoot for me. I had a blast and I hope (and based on the photographic evidence) that Jessie did too.

Another 70’s style post processing technique. I really like it for this shot and a great expression. Playful, casual, fun.

Love the light, the

eyes and the expression.

So my first set of seniors pictures. I’m lucky to have had the chance to shoot these for Jessie. A true pleasure to work with. Oh, and congratulations well in advance Jessie https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/achat-viagra-en-ligne-en-france/ on your upcoming graduation!
