Editing Photos and Watching Footy

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, September 27, 2008

So while the big Geelong Vs Hawthorn footy match was on today  [See my earlier post]  I spent time watching the game while editing photos.  Editing was slow because the game was so riveting.

Eventually I stopped editing and grabbed 3 pics from last weeks Romance Shoot with Kristy and Joe.  These were in front of a fabulous display of native everlasting flowers in Kings Park.  Flowers looked awesome but I wanted to put the pics into timeless old chocolate sepia toning.  Here’s the result.

Couple of Saturdays ago I shot a Pre-Wedding shoot.  That day we had a little 1 year old along with the cute name of Secoyah.  Now she has got a great personality shining through.  She took in everything and I even think she knew what was happening with the cameras and photography! Fascinating sense of humour too.  Such  placid little angel.  So tonight we have a collage and a couple of others.

Check out the bottom lip – she is going to have one fabulous pout.  You can bet that will come in handy in about 12 years time … or before.

Ok and here’s a collage with her practicing walking with Dad.

Melissa was fabulous to photograph on her recent pre-wed shoot. Here’s a pic of her listening to what I have in mind for this part of the shoot. Even then she had this amazing smile!!! I just know we’re going to get brilliant wedding pics of her and Sean. Here’s one with a bit of extra post processing. For family and friends the proofs are up for viewing on the AkessonPhoto gallery [ click on that and it will take you to the gallery] A password is required – it’s Melissa’s surname.

Listening Attentatively


Tomorrow I’m second shooting a Macedonian wedding with Chris Brown. Chris takes fabulous wedding photos,… and this one is going to be huge and heaps of fun. All the celebrations and ceremony, symbolism and splendor that goes with the mix of traditional values in a relaxed contemporary society.

And I have some really great pics of one year old Secoyah to come soon.
