I had a magnificent sunrise photo session with Lynn and Tara last week. They live right on the beach in St Leonards, on the Bellarine Peninsula. From the front balcony they have sensational views looking over Port Phillip Bay to the sun rising on the eastern horizon. We had planned the shot for the morning before but the weather looked a bit off so we rescheduled. We couldn’t have planned a better day for it in the end with a cloudless sky and zero wind the colours were just beautiful. I had two shots in mind that we had discussed at our planning meeting. A silhouette shot against the rising sun, which I managed to persuade Lynn to be in herself as well as a pre-sunrise shot using the studio lights on the beach. Both shots came out exactly as planned and it became a real challenge for Lynn to narrow down the selection.
With the help of some nifty software, I was able to capture a photo with my phone of the wall spaces she was thinking about and used these to mock up a wall display with the images from her session so that she could see exactly how the image would fit into the space she had available. It helped Lynn a lot to narrow down the selection.
In the end, she selected the images she loved and went with Wood Panel prints, which fits perfectly with her current setup at home. Her home has a real beachy feel with worn timbers throughout. The wood panel prints with their rough sawn edges will fit in perfectly so I’m delighted that she went with this option. Here are the wall mock ups from our ordering session together.
