Forever Improving

Alright guys as many of you enjoyed my previous blog entry ( see: Ordinary to Extra ) I thought I would do a few more break downs for you from a recent shoot with Australian Musician Jamie Lindsay. So without further a due here are some break downs for you:

First up with have this Natural Light shot, that’s right, no artificial light used,
just window light coming from the camera right.man sitting in chair with guitar in forest

Do I composite every image I take? No, I only choose to composite If I believe it can enhance an image. Sometimes the location and elements in my mind are very hard to come by and that is where compositing has come into place.

This next shot was taken with a large octabox on the camera left and
adjusted my shutter speed accordingly to allow for window light on the camera right to act as a kickerrockstar crouching in leather jacket grunge room taken by Cowra Photographer Brent Young

Can I have photos like this? Yes. Of course you can, I love to think outside the norm and deliver something completely different from a cliche denim on denim photograph in a field. ( It’s a new age everyone, can we stop doing that?!?! )

Every shot you see of Jamie in this post was taken in the exact same location,
we had very limited room, I was literally outside shooting from the front yard!Oasis Style Vibe with Sydney Musician Jamie Lindsay by Cowra Photographer Brent Young

Why should I hire you? You should hire me because I care about good imagery and progression. There is not a day that goes by where I am not trying to improve my skills in order to deliver a greater service and better product to you. All to often I see photographers put people in a field and run a $12 action ( “photoshop preset” ) over an image and over charge the clients. So if you want un-creative photos with a boring filter and a half-arsed level of service then by all means hire that photographer, BUT if You want something different, that no body else is going to have, that is unique and personal to you, then I can produce that for you. ( Also I work with the best printing labs in Australia, USA & Italy, so don’t settle for a photographer that is going to print your photos at Big W )

Emotional Content is the single most important ingredient a photo can contain.
Sometimes the small details make the biggest impact.

I’m a photographer & interested in getting started in compositing, do you offer training? I’m in the very early stages of putting together a Photography & Photoshop membership training site where you will be able to see all the tips and tricks I have to offer and so much more. If you sign up to my mailing list ( Here ) you will be the first to hear of the news when the site is up and running. If you have any questions in the mean time you can contact me through Facebook, Twitter or through the contact form on my Website www.BrentYoungPhotography.com
