October is here which means that the hot months are gone which means hello there outdoor shoots for us. Whew!
We want to kick off this busy season with a post of a shoot we have done earlier this year. As photographers, we rarely have time to get a shoot done for ourselves so we are glad we finally have a decent family photoshoot. Trix, my sister and now part of the MelRish team, have helped us by clicking the camera while we smile and pose for the camera. It was a different experience to be in front of the camera instead of being behind it.
It has not been easy so here are tips for those thinking to have an outdoor shoot done:
1. Get inspired. Look at some sample shots on the net. Pinterest is a good source of inspiration. For us, we wanted something quick and simple so we decided to just have the traditional one.
2. Choose a location. Dubai has a diverse choice of locations from deserts, beaches, parks, cityscapes and historical architecture all within in an hour’s travel in between.
3. Wear coordinating clothing. Here are some cool combinations which you can refer to. For us, we stuck to the most conventional one – all white! Do consider the backdrop or location of you shoot so you don’t blend in the background.
4. Be yourself. Easy to say but hard to do. It takes a few start up shots before you get comfortable in front of the camera. But remember that these are YOUR memories that you would want to keep forever.
Here are the shots we took in 30 minutes at Al Satwa Park. Memories we will keep forever. 🙂
