Background: Seattle Family Photography Mama Papa Photo Happy Hours were started in December of 2014 by Seattle Family Photography founder, Jennifer Loomis. Jennifer had just had a baby and was looking for something fun to do that involved a camera, costumes, her baby, other parents and maybe a beer or two. So the Mama Papa Photo Happy Hours were born! Some months we have 40 plus parents, other months we have five, but we are having fun. Our themes range from Christmas, to Safari to our craziest happy hour where we had special guests, two cute baby goats!

May Photography Tip

Incase you missed our May happy hour, here is a great photography tip from Seattle Family Photography. Remember to find us on Facebook to be the first to know about upcoming events!

SEATTLE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY May TIP:

Beginner’s Tip: Fill the frame

When taking a photo it’s easy for the photographer to stay stationary and only zoom in with the lens. Using zoom can create great images however try physically moving closer to the subject. Filling the frame can simplify the subject and creates more interest.

 

Intermediate’s Tip: Avoid midday lighting

When taking a photo outside, early morning or right before sunset is always best. Midday lighting creates harsh unflattering shadows on your subject. If you are stuck photographing in the midday light, try moving to the shade. This will create even lighting, or if shade isn’t available try backlighting the subject (backs to the sun).

Seattle Family Photography April Photo Tip

Incase you missed our last happy hour, here is a great photography tip from Seattle Family Photography. Remember to find us on Facebook to be the first to know about upcoming events!

SEATTLE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY APRIL TIP:

Beginner’s Tip: Check your backgrounds

When taking a photo it’s easy to click away and disregard the background. However if you put thought into what is in the background you can get some amazing images. Let the background do the work for you. Look for opportunities to frame the subject.

Intermediate’s Tip: Use aperture or shutter priority.

Most beginners use auto for everything. Try taking the camera off auto and try using aperture or shutter priority. This allows you to have more control over the final image without having to fumble with both. Read your camera manual on how to switch to both of these modes.
