A Way To Never Forget Your Magical Pregnancy

While going through the countless days of morning sickness, hormonal imbalance, nipple pain and every other pain that pregnancy is sure to bless you with, you’re probably still glowing nonetheless, especially when you feel your baby kicking about in your belly. While pregnancy has quite a few downsides to it, it will never be something any mom-to-be will hate – contrarily, it certainly will always be a treasured memory in the hearts of all mothers.

But why be satisfied with just memories? We’re living in the digital era – every memory can be preserved as so many photos and videos, which can surely capture the precious moments of our lives much more vividly than simple remembrance can. And this also applies to pregnancy – it’s also one of those precious moments after all. Of course, I’m not referring to simple photos you or your partner would take of you and your pregnant belly; I’m referring to photos taken by a maternity photographer.

A professional maternity photographer is usually scheduled while you’re 32-36 weeks in your pregnancy. While the photographer will advise you on what’s best, you can count on him/her to follow along with your wishes, for their wish too is to give you a loving memory of your time as a mom-to-be.

Therefore, be it a traditional indoor photo-shoot or some outright bizarre outdoor photo-shoot (of course, you can also go for bizarre indoor photo-shoots), you can rest assured that he/she will try his/her best to recreate what you need. Some common ideas include:

  • Progression photos of your pregnancy – you’ll need several appointments for this one, maybe weekly for example. A great addition to this idea is to include a photo with your new-born baby at the end!
  • With your partner – this a very common one. Be it holding your belly, or kissing it, it is sure to create a loving memory of your family.
  • With the ultrasound of your baby – this is a relatively new idea, but it has become very popular, so if you’d like one, be sure to take along your ultrasound when going to the photo-shoot!
  • With belly art – another new idea, you can have your belly painted on with whatever design you’d like (for example, one which shows how your baby would be inside your uterus!).
  • With your older children – this is a great idea if you have older kids. You can recreate the feeling of your family gradually becoming larger.

The above are of course only general ideas – you can consult with your photographer and even search on the internet (and the many maternity magazines that are probably lying around your house) for even better ideas. Don’t forget that it’s your own pregnancy though, so don’t be afraid of going along with an entirely new idea of your own if you’d like. After all, what you and everyone wishes to accomplish is to commemorate your precious nine months!

The Essentials Of Wedding Photography

A person may develop a passion in working as a wedding photographer after several attendances to a wedding. One might have given it a thought as a career. Mostly, many come along as wedding photographers Perth, but along the way lose interest for a number of reasons, such as not having the essential equipment needed to carry on. Some may see it as a tiresome job due to the number of equipment they are required to carry along. However, chances are that they might have been carrying less commonly used equipment or even equipment not needed at all. Some may have thought that there are no job opportunities in that sector, but they did not figure out that clients were not pleased with their services.

Therefore, for those venturing into the job, there are a number of equipment needed for a start off, though, as one gets more experience with time, they will get to learn about what to add and what to remove on their photographer equipment list. As it is common sense that cameras are essential for photography, one needs a camera. High resolution cameras in this case are important as they assist in capturing high quality images. The number of cameras is of interest as well, and three cameras precisely would do for a wedding ceremony. The other two may be used as backup, in case the primary camera develops a fault.

Zoom lenses of focal length 2.8 are also a companion. This focal length serves right when it comes to portraits. This is because they offer a wide range as well as a tight view or perspective.

Capturing the Perth wedding photos from a distance makes the telephoto lenses also important. Another sort of lens is the wide angle and the prime. They are essential while capturing a wide area, especially for the wide angle lenses. On the other end the prime enables photo-shooting on dark grounds. Lens cleaning kit for cleaning or wiping the lenses should be accompanied with the lenses.

Speedlight is essential for capturing photos in darker places that are difficult to capture without a flashlight. In wedding photography that involves capture of up to a thousand photos, there is a need for larger memory cards and fully charged batteries. Memory cards summing a memory of up to 60 GB are normally involved. Battery backup of fully charged two to three batteries is essential.

Tripod stand will also serve right to ensure that the positioning of the cameras is relative to those being captured. It is also important in balancing the light beams. Light stands are also important, especially if images have to be captured from a poorly lit room or place. Flashlight diffuser also plays a major role whenever the lights do not have to be set. It diffuses the light through the area of coverage, especially for wedding portraits. A sizeable bag to carry all the equipment in is also necessary for easy mobility and comfort while carrying the gear. Umbrellas and strobes are also needed, especially if it is likely to rain, or there is much colder.
