Such a fun Detroit Family Photo Session! I just love shooting in Detroit! The city is vibrant these days and it’s feels great to be down there. So many things have changed since my days of in-line skating around the city, but also lots for familiar sites. I was especially excited about this session because I was working with my new light. Mid-day sessions can be really tough to photograph. But we can’t always hide from the sun. We just need a few more tools to help us deal with it and make people look their best. A standard flash is not strong enough on a sunny day, to fill in the shadows that are a result of the strong mid-day sun. Being able to shoot in full sun opens up so many more opportunities and provides us with fun, vibrant images. Note: if you are a geek like me, you would want to know that the light I used is the Godox AD200.
These guys were so great to photograph! Turned out to be a great day for Detroit family photo session. Such sweet guys and up for anything involving exploring Detroit and stopping for some photographs. We started off on a pedestrian over pass to/from Eastern Market. Quite a feeling to be standing over the expressway with the cars and trucks whizzing by below!
Inspired by a ‘monkey’ competition, hanging from the railing earlier…
And this is what you get when you ask for a photo for their future rock band poster…
They were such good sports and we shared a lot of laughs!
We explored more of the city and made a quick stop at the huge library on Cass, after checking out Mid-Town and then the New Center area.
Who’s ready for a fun Detroit family photo session? I know lots of great spots around the city and metro Detroit. Let’s find a spot for your family or high school senior and get a session on the calendar!
