Discovering My Love For People Photography

These photograph's were captured on a winter's afternoon (6th January) in 2013. 
I was given the Panasonic Lumix FZ45 Digital Camera as a present for Christmas in 2012. I had been wanting a new camera ever since I started a course on art and design at college. I couldn't contain my excitement when I received the camera and began to experiment with the different settings straight away. When I started to get to know my camera a lot more over the Christmas holidays, I decided to go out and start taking some pictures.
I hadn't had much practice with photographing people and wanted to try taking photo's of people around a pretty setting. As a favor to help me gain experience, my cousin Yazmine modeled for my photograph's.

Myself and Yazmine went on a walk around my area so I could decide on what scenery I would like to capture. I noticed how beautiful the woodlands near my house was looking at the time and thought that it would be a lovely place to take the pictures. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the structure of my photograph's to be like. I kept trying out different arrangements and if the image appealed to me, I would adapt on it. I found that I had to be quite creative and imaginative with what I was doing.

Looking at the photograph's, I find they look more autumnal than wintery due to there being so many leaves on the floor and the yellowy/brown colours. This was my first practice with photo-shoots and is where I discovered my love of people photography.

I hope the post was enjoyable to read and that it has given inspiration in some way. If you would like to leave a comment, I would love to hear about any stories where you may have discovered a love for something from trying out something new.
