photoshoot for Valentines

Hello everyone

We all need a Valentines day Photoshoot! Its that time of year again where all the ladies and gents become so romantic and show one another just how they much we mean to each other.

You know us humans are strange creatures, we get stuck into routines and every day life takes over and we forget to show each other just how important we are.  We shouldn’t though. Time passes too quickly. Before you know it we are old and time has disappeared.

 

Its good that we have such occasions to give us a little nudge. A nudge in the right direction to bring out the romantic side of us.

 

For those of us lucky enough to have that significant other in their life. Now is the time to spoil them.

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 3

 

Get the best from the App Perfect 365 tip 3 on day number 3 of my secrets to achieving that flawless  look.

Lips

This is a wonderful too. The Deepen smile tool is great for enlarging our smile.

Whiten Teeth tool is fabulous if the light has not quite managed to hit them and make them dazzle so this tool will! But once again, don’t over do it. If your teeth are normally extremely white then its ok but if they are just a shade lighter then just gently use this tool.

The Lipstick tool is great to add a bit of colour to make your smile appear brighter and also the teeth as red lipstick will always make the teeth appear whiter. The only problem with this tool is that the mouth has to be kind of centre to the picture as it pre set to the app so if your face is  not centred and you add the Lipstick tool you might end up with a moth shaped lipstick on your cheek!

Contouring tool 

I love this tool, If you have just been shot at the wrong angle and your face looks slightly plump then you can slim it down with the slim face tool.

You can lift your cheeks too but don’t do it too much as we will look silly if our cheek are right under our eyes and they are not usually!

My favourite tool in the contouring is Enhance The Nose Tool. It casts a shadow which can slim the nose and cover bumps and lumps we don’t want to see. I have a small bone on the left side of my nose which is prominent when I turn to the side and I dislike it so this tool disguises it. Tool, I love you!!!!!!The sample is a pictures taken in the morning last November when my nephews and nieces were visiting.

Here are a few examples of where these tools are perfect.

Example one now look at example 2 the skin looks so fresh and smooth without being over done! You can see that I don’t look so tired. I love this tool!! I also opened my eyes a little bit as they seem smaller when you smile.

How to get the best images using photo editing Apps on the phone

Good afternoon everyone.

My friends always tell me that my pictures look great from my phone and even when we are out and we all take pictures they whatsaap them to me then I will edit them and send them back to them, my work never stops ha!!

I use 3 different Apps that I find very easy and simple to use. Sometimes when we over complicate things we get confused, even me who works with images and editing every day of my life!

Each App I use for a different purpose.

Today I am going to talk about, “Perfect 365”.

This is a fantastic app for smoothing out blemishes on the skin and generally just giving a little brightness to the face. Its like having a permanent Make Up Artist in your phone.

Here are a few  examples of my images that I have used it for, my skin looks kind of flawless but without being too plastic.

Its so easy to over edit but you have to take a step back and don’t go too over the top. Just remember the saying, ” Less is More” !

Example 1 is the original shot. Example 2 is my edit using Perfect 365 and Example 3 is just how NOT To Edit, its far too much.

Please let me know what you guys think.

Tune in tomorrow for some more examples!

SECRET number 8: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

Well the best secret ever and always is the best tip I can give you all.

ALWAYS shoot from above!

When i train photographers in the studio. I get them to do a shoot and I edit their shots and I can tell immediately from looking at the image the mistakes and the classic one is that they always shoot from below and shoot upwards. Now unless you are a supermodel and are creating a Vogue front cover then this is not going to work with the average person.

Doing  this will always always give the person a fat chin, neck and fat everything unless they are super skinny!

I am always conscious of this and its not such a bad thing as pictures are always memories! You will hide any double chin or any imperfections of the neck! It in fact makes you stretch the neck out so giving the impression it is longer than it is and also with gravity makes your wrinkles push back and stretches the skin on the face making you look younger! TRY IT, it really works!

SECRET number 7: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

Final Tip on Posing is to LOOSEN UP!

7. Loosen up.
Unless you’re a professional model, which rules most of us out! odds are that most of the photos you find yourself in are fun, casual shots with friends. As much you think “posing” for these types of pictures will make you look better, the fact remains that loosing up and having a little fun will almost always make for a more flattering snap. Since you’re not trying as hard, there will be less room for error.

Basically its a continuation of my tips yesterday. Relaxed and natural always captures the best shots. I have got some fabulous shots that are casual but with a little arrangement from me they always look like they have been put together but I ALWAYS think about the composition. Its in my blood, I can’t help it.

As I said yesterday, memories are EVERYTHING.

Always think about a shot before just taking it. You will get better each time you take them and you will love the fact that you can think quickly as how to arrange people. Its a marvellous tool but as I have been a photographer for over 25 years sometimes I do wish I could give my brain a rest, but I CAN’T!!!

Here are some great example of casual shots but the composition is spot on. All taken on my980783_10153993806375789_1454927778859113029_o  1919086_10153807369675789_4569564220349095838_n12004967_10153634543340789_4187454578221149755_n 12138432_894851407258609_249917141209498609_o 12743674_10153926624690789_2803081202949219206_n i Phone.

SECRET number 6: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

6.  Learn to smile for the camera.
Smiling is a tricky thing when it comes to photos. Too big, and you look silly, but none at all can make you look broody or angry or if you get it right sultry and attractive! The solution? The ‘natural’ smile you so often do when the camera’s not on you.

I always tell my friends and clients in the studio or on location  to talk to each other this way they feel silly and immediately laugh when they look at each other and we get the the best photographs.

Smiling too wide on purpose will cause your face to tense up, your eyes to squint, and your cheeks to puff out, which aren’t the benchmarks of an attractive photo. Instead, take a beat to relax your face and open your mouth  slightly, so that your lower lip matches the curve of your upper teeth. This is universally flattering, and allows you to decide how much teeth you want to show. Not a fan of smiling with teeth? Laugh and look to the side, behind you or downwards, anyway to create angles and interest.

One thing to note: When you smile naturally, the area around your eyes tends to crease a bit, which reads as much more sincere than stiffly smiling just with your mouth. It also shows your character and personality which makes shot so much more interesting.

A classic example of this . My friends and I went to a ball the other day and here are 2 shots from the same moment but me being me, I always like to make a picture have interest so shot 2 you can tell just because of what I said  that I told my friends to talk to each other.

I am trying to use all shots from the phone so you can see the results you can achieve. Thees are not shot in the best of light hence why they are pixelated but it did record the moment. In fact, a very special moment as 2 of my best friends on these shots are leaving Dubai for good so the value in these shots are priceless. Basically sums up everything I have been talking about creating memories.
