Couple Shoot Practise

[dt_fancy_title title=”Couple Shoot Practise – A Walk in Hampstead” title_size=”h3″]

The weather is definitely starting to improve! These days, Winter just seems to consists of a few weeks of grey and wet. It never got really cold here in London. The sun is shining again and the blossom is beginning to show on the trees.

As my brother and sister-in-law were down for the weekend, we thought we’d take advantage of the congenial climate with a leisurely stroll around Hampstead and surrounding environs (actually, the plan was to make it to The Freemasons Arms, but via some circuitous route).

Not wanting to miss an opportunity for photography, I took along my D810 and a 24-70mm lens with the intention of coercing them into a little ‘couple shoot’ practice. I still find posing people the hardest aspect of photography. It’s just so damn tricky! I have quite a few books on the subject, but at the end of the day, there’s really no substitute for finding a couple of ‘volunteers’ and practicing.

N&C are pretty good. They grumble a bit when I try to get them to do ‘stuff’, but they’re generally willing to help. They usually manage to get a new Facebook profile pic out of it. Can’t be all bad! 🙂
