I took this shot when it was overcast that way I wouldn’t be competing with any bright sunlight reflecting off of the door. My other tip is to have the subject in bold colors. It helps pop through the glass more and easily over powers any weak reflections popping up on the glass. This way you only have to bring up the contrast a little bit instead of having to do a ton of editing post shot!

This is a wall in a parking lot. It’s almost a white but has grey undertones. To make sure my seven year old got the shot I put my @canonusa to AI SERVO (good for movement, I use it for jumping shots too) she is short so I also changed it from single point to seven and had the top points selected. I knew she would naturally angle the camera up! The overcast was perfect for light so I didn’t have a problem with the ISO and shutter. To make the wall white I used the selective tool and erased us and bumped up shadows and exposure and lowered the saturation. This photo was at a wired angle, so after my edits I cropped it and layered it with a larger white background and blended it!
Thank you💕💕👏🏽 it was an absolute mess😂 so after a while with trying I got some help getting it the way I wanted! The shoot it self took under five minutes! The girls were not hard to ask to play with this box 😍 it was so fun! Thank you for sharing! . . . Created an empty template, but after struggling how to do the line up i got some help from a ps wizard! Its very time consuming but so worth it! Its 9 images all taken within 5 minutes. Box has to be places on top of something (i used a table to get the foot hangin out etc! Make sure all images a shot in the exact same spot! Good luck its so much fun!
The shutter speed was 1/40 and I basically just told the parents they had to hold still while the kids ran in front of them. I wanted a motion shot because it’s just what life feels like during this stage. I had this image in mind before the shoot and so glad it turned out how I envisioned- not all my ideas do. 🙂
Oh my goodness!! Thank you so much @merrakaiphotography!
Top tip for getting started with film: buy a camera and just start shooting. They are not expensive, and it is not all that hard! Just put the camera on auto if you’re unsure of yourself. You can even use a toy camera so you literally can’t think about anything but composition. Just shoot. Load a roll and go. Just see how it feels. Seems too easy? That’s just because it really is. ❤️❤️❤️
