What I Photographed Today (actually yesterday!) | Real Estate Photography and a Location Portrait Session

In this recap video, I show what I was photographing today in Lake Mills, WI and later in Madison, WI.

The first was a gorgeous country home and I was doing a photo and video shoot for their realtor.

The family portrait was for a Mother's Day Promotion and that session was held at Olbrich Gardens on the east side of Madison.

It was a great day -- a long one -- though very fulfilling. There are some Straight out of Camera (SOOC) photos in the video.

The interiors will require more post production because of the layering technique I used. The portraits though were very straightforward...I used natural light (mostly backlight) and occasionally I used a Godox ad200 with the round head and round diffuser which worked very well to fill the faces in back lit scenarios.

On all of these shoots I used my Sony a7RIII and Sony a9 cameras plus mostly the 12-24 and 16-35 for the interiors.

For the portraits I used the 55 1.8 and the 70-200 for virtually all of them.

The interiors required lighting so I used a combination of strobe (from the ad200) as well as LED lights from PRL Lighting.

Support on the interiors came from Sirui's line up of carbon fiber tripods and heads and they performed flawlessly.

The bags that I used to transport all the gear were from Think Tank Photo. They make wonderful bags and I know the folks that are at the company and they are so supportive of my efforts.

If you have any questions, be sure and post them in the comments below.
