Last week I was hired to take photographs of a client who just became a certified Yoga instructor for her new website. The session was actually purchased by her sister as an early Christmas gift, which is never a bad idea during the holiday season! We spent a few hours in Jersey City at Liberty State Park, Paulus Hook, and a few other spots. I was shooting with my Canon EOS 5D III and alternating between my Canon 27-70mm 2.8II and Canon 70-200mm 2.8II. The telephoto lens always gives the most beautiful depth of field and color when shooting from a distance in a colorful setting. The late Autumn foliage around the park provided that perfect background and the pants Caitlyn wore really made her stand out in the foreground in all of the shots. I suggested she wore something colorful but those were really perfect!
I was able to capture a nice range of scenery, from a city backdrop to having the frame filled with nothing but nature. I think the tranquility of yoga and the connotations that go with it certainly warranted the need for plenty of Mother Nature in the shots and Caitlin could not have been happier with how they came out. I have been busy with Engagement sessions, Headshots, and Portrait sessions over the last few weeks leading into winter and I am excited to share the rest of those photos with everyone soon. Whatever it is that you want to capture, I would love to chat about your ideas or thoughts and discuss working together. Reach out anytime!
