Valerie – Boston Portrait Photography

A week or so ago I posted on Facebook that I would take portraits for free of anyone who was willing to come to me in the next few weeks that I have off between weddings. Val, an old college buddy, was the first one to take me up on that offer. We headed down to some of the parks a short distance from my house in East Boston and grabbed some portrait photographs an hour or so before sunset and continued into the night to capture some great Boston portrait shots of the city at night.

Off camera flash exposure

Off camera flash for dramatic images

Using off camera flash can have a significant impact on your photos. Early this morning around 11am Steph and I went down to the park so that I could play around with my new reflector that I purchased. The sky was fairly overcast which makes for nice soft light for photography when you are shooting against a solid background such as a wall. However, shooting against the sky would be nearly impossible without a double exposure composite photo or using a significant grade graduated polarizing filter. Here is a photo of the sky over Boston (southie mostly) as exposed correctly for the subject.

Adam and Kara’s Wedding

Adam and Kara were wed at the beautiful Our Lady Help of Christians Church in Newton, MA on 2011-08-13. I used a 22 shot stitch to capture most of the Church.
