London family photography is a very different business to most, as you don’t see your family all the time. The only real constant is the weather and how lucky we are to live where it’s always nice and dry! As a family photographer in London, these are some of the challenges I face every day: Click here – aidallanosphotography.com
The weather in London is unpredictable and quite often it can be windy and wet, but many Londoners do not own large homes and so we are lucky with some great outdoor spots in the city. My usual London family photography tips are to find the high points in the city (always behind buildings or in the most beautiful parks) and work from there. If you have a few locations, rather than a big space, you will be able to take better photographs. If you’re taking pictures of groups of people, think about which picture makes best either as a group shot, or as individual portraits. Also think about your colour theme – it’s always best to work with a colour theme that compliments the backgrounds rather than clash and distract from them.
Once you have picked your location, the next challenge is getting into the position to take excellent pictures. It may seem obvious, but if you can see your client clearly, then you are less likely to be distracted and miss the perfect shot. Many London family photography locations are surrounded by beautiful greenery, and trying to get into the position where you can not see your client clearly means missing the chance of taking beautiful images. Always have a look behind you as you approach, or stand a distance away, this will help prevent you from missing the perfect shot.
