CELEBRATION // Safia @safia_designstudio is a florist and mosaic artist. Originally from Melbourne, Australia now in Oxford. She enrolled on PHOTO PROUD just weeks after arriving in the UK. She created these incredible images during and after the course.
"Over the course of 8 weeks, Ria covered all you need to know about your camera from the way it functions to how to get the perfect shot. In addition to that you also learn how to edit your images and develop your personal style. Ria was absolutely fantastic at personalising the course to each participant and made sure that she provided each and every one of us with all the resources that we needed to completely benefit from the coursework. There was no question too small or insignificant to be discussed. Within 8 weeks I went from a clueless camera owner to a confident photographer. This course is worth every penny and I couldn't recommend it enough!"
I am immensely proud of what Safia achieved in the time we worked together! Help me celebrate her in the comments below with your favourite celebratory emoji!

For those of you who like taking pictures, here are some quick tips to take pictures in markets:
- Try filling the frame with the display of fruit (see three previous pics)... try different compositions which you can later decide on
- Visit the market early in the morning to have more chances of capturing different moments (e.g. setting up for the day) and have less tourists around
- Pick a spot and wait for people to come and go... at some point you will find that nice moment or gesture with a snapshot - Buy some products, engage in a conversation to learn about those products you are unfamiliar with... you will leave having contributed and expanding your knowledge of the local culture 📍 Mercado de la Boqueria, #Barcelona#Spain
“If you are marketing to everyone, you are reaching NO ONE.”
WHOA. That concept seriously SHOOK me when I first read it. Think about it. If I was posting newborns, seniors, weddings, families, kids, fresh 48, boudoir, real estate photos, (TAKES AN EXAGGERATED BREATH), branding photos, engagements, pet portraits, you would have no idea WHO I am or WHAT I do. Right?
Which is why I gotta say to my fellow senior photogs, what makes you different?
+ Do you specialize in something? Like sport portraits or feminine natural light seniors?
+ Do you adore quirky things, like seniors that bring their pets to their sessions?
+ Are you the queen of finding unique locations?
People WANT to see you shine, whatever your domain is! So be YOU! Be comfortable being yourself, sharing what you want to shoot, and specializing in your niche. Because when we support each other in our own special areas, we all get to do what we love. WIN. WIN. WIN. (Insert Oprah gif here - you get a win, and you get a win!)

Aunque la fotografía de producto tradicional puede ser interesante, las marcas necesitan adaptarse al estilo más atractivo en redes sociales, donde predomina el retrato y lo espontáneo. 📷⚡ Lee en cameo22.com ➡️ Fotografía de producto: tips para capturar la atención 👁️✨
Quick Tip Tues: Getting fast and furious with shutter speed... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shutter Priority mode, TV or S depending on your camera brand, is the fastest setting to understand. It allows you to change the speed of the shutter while the camera chooses the correct Aperture and ISO to obtain the correct exposure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Imagine a window with a curtain. If the size of the window is your Aperture then the Shutter Speed is how fast you open and close the curtain. See, easy peasy it’s so speedy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quickly opening the curtain will freeze the action but holding it open for a longer period will create motion blur. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Swipe to see a couple of examples.➡➡➡ Some suggestions for shutter speed are ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast-moving sports/kids or pets playing 1/300th – 1/1000th sec ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Waterfalls 1/4th – 2 sec depending on how much blur you like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Urban Nightscapes 1/2 – 4 sec ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Milky Way and Starlight 20 – 30 sec ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now go out and give it a try. Got a question? 🙋♀️ Ask me or better yet, tag me in the photo. Would love to hear and see how it’s going. 👇👇👇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have fun #capturingmemories and let's take #allthesideroads together and #enjoytheview along the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Photo Tip ☝️ When photographing others at sunset or sunrise on the beach, try a wide angle lens (17-24), f/8 aperture, ISO 400 and a 1/40 shutter speed minimum (presuming the person isn’t moving too fast). A warmer white balance setting like cloudy, overcast or kelvin 8000-10,000 will result in bolder reds and oranges. Compose your image so to capture the subjects full reflection / shadow plus a little more foreground space.
