Nottingham Portrait Photography - Wollaton Park fashion shoot

As a Nottingham Wedding photographer I'm always looking to hone my skills in all areas of Wedding Photography. Thats one thing I love about photographing weddings is that it incorporates so many photographic styles and techniques throughout the day . Commercial photography, portrait photography, product photography and others all have skills and techniques that can help a wedding photographer. Because of this I treat myself to many types of photography including Portrait Photography.
    Last week I photographed a portrait session at Wollaton Park in Nottingham with my friend Karis.  She's a great model to work with is quick to understand what I'm looking for.  It was a brisk  windy Winter's day but the sun was still out in dribs and drabs giving us lots of opportunities to play with lighting. These shots below are a few of my favourites. I'm looking to do more Nottingham Portrait Photography in the new year and work on my portrait skills and lighting skills which can all be applied in my wedding photography for my Nottingham Weddings. Each shot involves bits of experimentation and new things I can incorporate into my work. I'd love to hear your comments below.

 For this shot it was very windy so I wedged my speedlite and softbox into a tree to keep it in place.

 I loved shooting against this walls and tried a few styles using off camera flash and natural lighting.

 Something I always do with couples on engagement shoots is instruct them to walk towards me looking anywhere but at the ground. I snap away and normally get something I'm happy with the first time.
