Teaching My 6-Year-Old Daughter The Art of Photography: A Cozy Home Studio Experience

As a parent, there’s nothing quite as rewarding as sharing a passion with your child. For me, that passion is photography, and I recently had the pleasure of teaching my 6-year-old daughter the basics of using a camera. We set up our cozy home studio at Ozgo Productions and got to work. I started by taking photos of her and my wife, trying out different outfits. Shortly after, she took over. I showed her how to zoom in and out, adjust the aperture, and frame a subject. It was amazing to see how quickly she picked up on everything and […]

A Proud Parent Moment When My 6 and a Half Year Old Daughter Took Over a Professional Photo Session

As a professional photographer, I have been taking pictures for years, but nothing has ever compared to the experience I had when my 6 and a half year old daughter took over an ad hoc studio photo session our friends ask me to do. After a few images, my daughter offered to take over the session for me. To my surprise, she did an amazing job! She showed a level of maturity and skill that I hadn’t expected from someone her age. She captured some beautiful images and also had a great sense of humour, making sure everyone was having […]

332-2020 – Little Princess

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a little princess who visited our Ozgo Productions studio to celebrate her birthday with a photo session. I used a Canon 5D Mark 3 with a 70-200mm f/2.8L lens and a black background because she was wearing a yellow dress and I wanted the greatest contrast between the subject and the background.

308-2020 – Bananas

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about two bananas on a mirror in the Ozgo Productions studio. The setup was really simple, one flash head shooting through a snoot, about 45 degrees from the subject pointing down. The main benefit of using a snoot is controlling the light. It restricts the spread to a narrow beam, so that some areas of the frame are not lit at all. In our tabletop example, the bananas are highlighted and the background is totally black.

274-2020 – Panda Bear Plush Toy

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my daughter’s Panda Bear Plush Toy on a black background. This images started with a black background and a white surface made of polystyrene. I was intrigued by the contrast and challenged myself to capture a black and white object in this environment. If you look closely in the toy’s eyes you can see where I got the lighting setup idea. Three-point lighting setup In order to achieve this setup I needed 3 lights. I had the back light (Elinchrom D-lite 400 flash head with […]

269-2020 – Pineapple on a black background

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a pineapple on a black background. This image was taken in Ozgo Production’s small studio with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, a manual macro lens (F22), an Elinchrom flash head with a snoot on a light stand shooting down from above, but the key light was from a Canon speedlight flash on camera pointed at the object, exposure, 1/200 sec, ISO 100. In Ozgo Productions studio we captured different fruits on a black background like this apple or a small Daddy Pig toy, to […]

190-2020 – Daddy Pig

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is a portrait of Daddy Pig on a black background in the Ozgo Productions Studio. This image was taken with the iPhone 11 Pro with the 55mm lens and Slow Shutter app using a torch swinging from above as a main light. In post, I cropped the image 1:1 in Lightroom and adjusted the levels a little bit. I am not very happy with the reflective surface I used as the floor and retrospectively I think I should have extended the black background and let the toy […]

179-2020 – Perfect Pose

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is a perfect pose of Diana, which technically she took it herself. The camera was setup for a group photo of our family, on 10 seconds timer when Diana suddenly pushed me aside demanding to take the photo. She pressed the shutter and quickly run in front of the lens and stroke this pose. In Adobe Photoshop, I extended the background a little bit and exported it as *.jpeg full resolution and smaller version for web use. Below are a few more images captured during the same […]
