Family Photography by Denver Family Photographer

Some time ago, to be more precise in 2014 I had an opportunity to photograph a wonderful family in Roxborough State Park (blog post here). So after some time the family had their baby boy who is very cute and always smiles, so I had an opportunity to photograph for them again with the new addition to the family.

I do want to say that I enjoy photographing this family and not just because they are very good friends of mine but also because they have wonderful kids who are very photogenic. But this time we decided on a park in DTC which is Silo Park and I love this location. Yes, it’s used by many photographers and it’s because of so many areas in the park that are great locations for photos. Yet this post is not about the park it’s about a family photos.

The funny thing is the first time we had scheduled the photo shoot is was bad, the weather turned from sunny to almost a thunderstorm in few minutes and we had to cancel the photoshoot. But the second time around was great weather which the photos do reflect on. I would love to talk about how I enjoyed photographing this family and how much fun did the everyone had at the photoshoot. But I want to show you the photos because I think they are great photos, so here are the photos.

One last thing that I would like to mention is that my daughter and their oldest son are very good friends and I couldn’t resist of photographing them together so here is one photo of them both.

Fuji X-T1 Review by Shutter Avenue Photography

So now that I had my Fuji X-T1 with XF 10-24mm F4 IOS lens I can finally say something good and bad about it. But first off all just like good review of anything I will start with good part(s) about the camera and the lens.Fuji X-T1 and Fuji XF 10-24mm F4 IOS Review

Fuji X-T1 the good stuff:

I LOVE THIS CAMERA!!!! Sorry had to get it out of my system. By this time I photographed everything with it from Architecture, Interior Design, Real Estate to Portraits, Weddings and so on. It’s a bit smaller from a regular DSLR camera like Nikon D300 but it’s light weight. I love it that is light because when I was photographing my first wedding I didn’t even get tired from having two X-T1s’ on me. They are light, and fast. What I mean is: I would just have one on left side and one on right side of me and also so that I would not kill the battery so quickly (since I don’t have battery grip) I would turn it off and then when I needed to turn it on and it’s fast to do the job.

Fuji X-T1 and Fuji XF 10-24mm F4 IOS Review

The ISO on this camera is amazing and because of dynamic range option they have it is great. The image quality even with high ISO is just wow. Shooting photos at a wedding in dark rooms was a piece of cake. I didn’t have to worry that ISO will overwhelm the photos and I will need to do lots of post production to correct this issue.

Fuji X-T1 and Fuji XF 10-24mm F4 IOS Review

Now for Architectural photography, it’s even better. I love it that I can customize the white balance on this camera (meaning not only select the K value but also customize even that value if I want more or less blue, yellow, green and red). By this time some of you will say “Just shoot RAW”, well I could but if I can get it out of the camera right why waste hard drive space. Yet for interior design or specific architectural project I will shoot in RAW but for real estate photography, not even once.

The features of the camera lets me customize to my likings of how it should photograph to even specific buttons to do what I need them to do. Also the adjustable-tilt screen is fun to have. There are times in portrait or wedding photography where this is very beneficial. For real estate, architecture, interior photography not really since I use my iPad to photograph.

Fuji X-T1 not so good stuff:

Battery, battery, battery. They need to do something about this, I have no words to explain how the battery’s life is only good for short period of time (up to 300-500 photos if turning it on and off but is the camera is on all the time then maybe 3-4 hours before the batter starts to die).

Wi-Fi mode – good but only for short distances. I found out from out in the field testing I can get range from 50 feet to 200 feet depending if I am inside or outside the building. This is a good time to talk about Fuji X-T1 remote app. Its very hard to say lots of good stuff about it because it need major update. The app is slow sometimes, and you get only 25% of options while photographing from full potential of the camera. The best way I found out to use it is make sure that the camera is fully set to the setting you need then connect the app.

Fuji XF 10-24mm F4 IOS lens:

Love this lens! Its sharp all around, almost no bowing effect at the edges, and its fast. Now this is a good portrait lens for wide angle but not the best. This lens is best for architectural style of photography. I have been using this lens for the past few months and from every other lens which I have used in the past (in the same aspect ratio) this is far by the best lens. I don’t know if I have anything bad to say about this lens.

Well this concludes my short review of Fuji X-T1 with XF 10-24mm F4 IOS lens hope to get more lenses and maybe update my review some time later next year.

Jake and Jenny Portrait Photography |Shutter Avenue Photography

So I have mentioned Jenny in one of the previous blog post about logo design, it is the person who designed my new logo for my business. But one thing I haven’t mentioned is that last year in November I photographed her and her husband Jake.

Denver Portrait Photography

I have to admit they are a great couple, I loved hanging around them and photographing them. The location that we have selected was in Cherry Creek Reservoir Park where there are stables for horses are and apparently Jenny takes care of one of the horses there. So yes we did do some photos with her horse and it was lots of fun and we did get in trouble because even though we were at least 300 feet off the path we got bad wrap from the instructor since she told us that the horses were getting afraid of flash. 0_O But in the end we still walked around and found lots of areas for backgrounds. Yet I want to talk a little bit about Jake and Jenny who have become good friends of mine. Hanging around them you get a good vibe from them, it was easy to photograph them because they value photography and listen to the photographer, so in the end we had plenty of photos for them. Well take a look for yourself at some of the images below.

Evan and Jordan | Denver Engagement Photography

Denver Engagement Photography

It’s been some time since I wrote any blog posts but it’s been incredibly busy for me lately. Yet few weeks ago I had this engagement session not far from Denver in Roxborough State Park. I love this location for not only the variety of locations to photograph with different backgrounds but also because in few locations it looks like Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs (without driving to Colorado Springs).

I have meet Evan and Jordan for very brief moment and they liked my photography, so eventually they wanted me to photograph their engagement session. What a great couple, they were easy going, fun to be around, and they have great personalities. I enjoyed photographing them (untill park ranger kicked us out) but as my own personal opinion I think the photos are great. Well take a look for yourselves.

Sort of Recent Family Photography by Shutter Avenue Photography

Just before we moved into winter, and the cold weather stopped or slow down everything in photography I had an opportunity to photograph this family (sorry no names for privacy). Yes I do know them and they are very good friends of mine so it made it easier for them and for me to photograph.

But honestly, family photography is very special to me, because its very different from weddings or portrait photography (oh wait it still considers portrait photography). Yet family photography does involves kids and making sure everything runs smoothly. Not that I am saying kids are bad, don’t forget I do have almost three year old daughter my self, but with kids its different to photograph then lets say couples. Kids always want to move, make faces, and have very short span of attention. But what I think, thats what make is great. Even with this family I got plenty of photos were the boy moves so much and makes faces that at one point it was pure fun to photograph (even though knowing that the photo will not be that great but the parents will love it). That is the point of family photography, its not just “come here, sit here, smile and we are done” its all about memories. As a photographer I have to understand what make each family unique, and try to capture that in the photo. Yes, you could go to “global studio” where you will get x amount of photos but all photos will be the same, because those studios don’t have time to spend on negatives they strive to produce only similar result every time to have a profit only case.

But back to this family, by knowing them ahead of time I really enjoyed photographing them and the final result does speak for itself. Why am I trying to convince you look for yourself at the photos below.
