Hey! I'm Sophie and I'm a Content and Communications Coordinator from Leicester.

I love handbags so much so that I can hear my bank account crying when I go shopping and I'm nearly always listening to music. If you want to send me some new music recommendations that you're loving, please do!

Stay at Home Portrait Photography | At one with nature

Photography is one of my passions; I love being behind the camera, editing and seeing the final photos. My camera is my way of escape, it builds my creativity and allows me to develop my skills. I have no interest in pursuing a career in photography (although I wouldn't mind earning money from it), this is purely my hobby. Being behind the camera is a way that I relax and I thoroughly enjoy it.

A little side note: I'm definitely open to taking on some paid shoots if there's anyone local to Leicester that would like a photoshoot with me!

Each time I get my camera out, I'm trying to stick to a theme: light, eyes, black and white, personality, etc. It definitely gives me a purpose and helps me get that little bit more creative. I'm a massive perfectionist (not always a good thing) - the smallest things make the biggest difference and I definitely think that's a rule in photography.

Be as creative as possible, use the most random objects, play around with the editing and don't be afraid to fail! Not every photo I take works out. What you can think is a really great idea doesn't always come out well on the screen and that's just that. Some ideas you have to give up but there's always another which will look even better than the last.

Moving onto the work that I've been shooting recently. This series of photos were a result of my 'at one with nature' portrait photography shoot. You can find out a bit more about my shoot below:






Where better to shoot than the garden in this lockdown? It's full of life! Unfortunately, I don't possess the same green thumb that my sister, mum and grandparents have but I certainly love taking photos surrounded by greenery.

Portrait photography is great when flowers are blooming, you can get some really delicate shots. In this shoot, I tried to capture some photo of my sister and her personality but also some more sultry, more natural ones too. She was wearing a top at all times but something as simple as pushing the straps of her top down creates a more natural look.

Capturing the right angle is key to making your photos seem less boring. There wasn't a cloud in sight so I made use of the sky and the sun. Angles facing upward can create an alluring yet dominate the image. Composing the photo is also important, having flowers and nature in the foreground often work better for portrait photography as they can be used to frame and draw attention to the face.

Have you been doing any photography while in lockdown?
