• sorry for reposting yesterday’s photo i made some adjustments such as closer up, created a shadow and got rid of the distracting yellow butterfly, i’ve also included one of the many before pictures of the smoke bomb literally just blowing out from the umbrella so you can see the epic fail but i liked how i fixed it after
one of the hardest edits ever because of all the mistakes i made during the shoot
first mistake the umbrella used was ugly af and it was uneven and too small which is why you can barely see the umbrella
second mistake smoke bomb was tied too low on the handle which made the smoke just blow outwards even before hitting the roof of the umbrella and it was also a double sided smoke bomb which didn’t help - should have used a single but didn’t have any on hand which is why a double was used, i had to spend a lot of time in photoshop blending the smoke together to create this something that could have been prevented if i had just done it right from the beginning
third mistake should have shot model in an area where the plain was flat and not against a slope which makes it difficult for the eye to tell that she’s floating
nevertheless i take all this experience as practice and it’s all part of my journey into photography and becoming a better photographer and i shall remember this for the next time i shoot :) •
Ok, here’s the story behind the laughter...
We had rescheduled Ashley & Carlos’ Baby announcement shoot a think 3 times, but every-time the day would come it was so ridiculously windy which doesn’t really work with smoke bombs! .
Finally it was getting down to the wire and we had to get this down, the three of us both set all the smoke bombs in place, (mind you these things were supposed to last a good 5 minutes) and we literally sat there until the wind died down. We thought we were in the clear and I warned them just to be ready to run around if we needed to. .
And action! As soon as we lit them another huge gust of wind came out of nowhere and we were literally running around the smoke trying to catch the good spots! Which I’m so glad they were up for because the smoke bombs ended up lasting less than a minute..😑 .
Moral of the story...when using smoke bombs don’t do it on windy days or just be ready to run around like a maniac if you do, and smoke bombs don’t last nearly as long as they say...
But I’m sure you can tell by their faces, they had fun!

You must have a pure spirit with people who treat you kindly and humanely and must be wary of people who have malicious and evil behaviors 😌😏 ____________________________________________
