Golden Hour Location Shoot Model Call for July 2017 Ipswich Suffolk Photos

Wow, the weather has been so hot lately, it has been truly glorious outside. I have really been enjoying getting out and about with my camera on the dog walk, photographing him and my little lady.

Nature is a perfect backdrop, offers diverse colours and textures and is forever changing. The light is unpredictable, which throws up challenges, but makes photographing during random times of day interesting. When the sun is high in the sky it throws dark shadows on your subject, and blows out areas of definition, causing photos to be overexposed. There are ways around this, but my hands are pretty full already with a buggy, 1 year old and very lively large dog!

All photographers I know the ‘golden hour’ (a time frame shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky) is an ideal time to take photos. However I am not a morning person, and my children’s bedtime is 7.30pm! So this presents some difficulty in actually shooting during this time. I am very determined to get some evening shots with my kids, but this could prove to be a complete failure as my 1 year old may be tired and grumpy! Saying that, with the heat, she has been staying up later anyway so it may work out!

It was while I was viewing the results of my little session with my daughter in the poppies (I keep her ‘sessions’ brief as she is at a difficult age to photograph (18 months today!) and doesn’t want to stay still long, that I thought I’d really like to do some family location shoots. So thought I’d put out a model call and do just that for golden hour family photos!
