Stage 1 - from an idea to an image for a photo shoot mom and daughter

Choosing the image for the photo shoot of mom and daughter, I was guided primarily by the ideas of color compatibility. In other words, the color palette in the clothes of both models should be harmoniously combined with several factors at once: Autumn (autumn, cloudy weather), nature (park, embankment and fallen autumn foliage from the trees), hair color of mother and daughter. For this image, it was necessary to buy (rent, buy, return) raincoats of one style and color. As it turned out, this is not so simple in Kiev, because there are shops where there is only clothing for adults, and shops where everything is for children. In general, in my observation, stylish clothes for children are a problem, there are very few of them. But by joint efforts with the Mama model, we managed to find 2 very similar in style and color to the women's raincoats: for Mom and daughter. Bottom - wear jeans and sneakers to enhance informality and lightness. Take similar black backpacks. On the hairstyle, we approved to make curls, but wrap them in a roll, so that during the project, expand and complement the image.

Stage 2 - Time and Place

Based on the fact that the “Mom and Daughter” project took place in the form of the “Day of Life” service, we decided to spend the morning awakening and training scene in the W studio, where there was everything necessary for the maximum recreation of the morning atmosphere of domestic life. After, use the locations of Kiev for a photo shoot in the following order: Pedestrian bridge across the Dnieper (Park Bridge). From it, walk along the embankment to Postal Square, visit McDonald’s, then shoot the scene of a walk along the Dnieper at the very water and end in Lower Mariinsky Park. The day for this was chosen weekdays in order to minimize the passage of passers-by into the frame, who could potentially walk in the approved locations. The weather at that time was supposed to be traditional for the second half of October - cloudy, cool and damp.

Shooting day: How it was?

It all started with how we all arrived at the photo studio. Since the first part of the photo session, Mom and daughter assumed scenes related to awakening and morning gatherings - there were no makeup or styling on the models. We started working at 8:00 in the morning, barely having time to drink a cup of coffee. By the way, in the photo studio there was a small kitten who also became a participant in the photo shoot. The shooting took place without the use of artificial light sources. But, at 8 in the morning, in the second half of October, especially in cloudy times - natural light is not quite enough for comfortable work. This is exactly the situation when the aperture ratio of optics matters. Fortunately, my values ​​were enough for comfortable work in such low light. All photos were bright and sharp, without the need to greatly overestimate ISO. For focal points, for the most part I worked at 35mm to capture the scene and transmit the atmosphere. Next, we went to the second part - the street. Mom and daughters made hairstyles, after which we started shooting. Everything went according to the chronology of the plan. The walk lasted about 4 hours, for which we managed to do everything. An important point will be to indicate that for small children, projects of such a duration are not easy, and care should be taken in advance to make the child comfortable. Hold a photo shoot as a game with nice prizes / bonuses.

Selection, color correction and retouching

During the shooting day, we visited more than 5 locations: In the park, on the embankment, on the bridge, on the square and in the photo studio. As a result, it turned out to make 950 source pictures. Small children are harder to predict than adults. That is why, you have to literally catch them by chance to get the desired result. After importing into LR, and selecting, a series of 250 excellent shots was released, which were stained and adjusted. Dale retouching stage. So, as the photo shoot mother and daughter mostly took place on the street - the main retouch fell on the cleaning of our Kiev streets. As a result, 70 photos were received, which will go to print a photobook from the project “Mom Daughter Photo Shoot”.
