Top 3 outdoor locations for family photography in Pakenham.
Outdoor locations are perfect to create a change in your photo’s backgrounds. Using an outdoor location means you can have a huge variety in background just by moving one metre. To change backgrounds in the studio takes a lot more time and effort. The best part about using an outdoor location is having a wider range of different looking photos based on different backgrounds. Outdoor locations can be used for family photography, maternity photography, newborn photography or wedding photography……any type of photography (provided the weather is fine!)
The best time to photograph using an outdoor location is in the morning or late afternoon when the sun is not so strong. Photographing in the middle of the day should be avoided as the sun is high in the sky and it creates harsh shadows on the face. Sometimes it is unavoidable and there are a couple of things your photographer can do to change this. The first is using shade and the second is using flash so that it lightens up the whole face evenly.
I love using outdoor locations particularly for family photography. My top 3 locations in Pakenham are:
- Duck Pond, Henry Lawson Drive, Pakenham
- Lake, Lakeside, Pakenham
- Quarry, Windermere Blvd, Pakenham
All of these locations have one thing in common, many areas to take a variety of photos. There are many other places but these are my favourite places for photography, in particular family photography.
Remember memories fade…..but photographs last a lifetime!
