Maternity pictures close to the heart
This year I took a different approach on my maternity shoot, letting go the perpetually happy expression that is always presented on social media in exchange for something closer to heart. Something raw & (almost) unphotoshopped images. I though what better way to commemorate this pregnancy by having myself behind and infront of the camera. So I set up my tripod and get this ‘selfie’ going. With the aide of my mobile phone, I linked both devices (camera and phone) and placed it on timer. Needless to say, running on a one man show makes everything a notch harder. I had to make sure everything looks ok; lighting, perspective, angle etc. Though I didn’t specially act posey for every shot, I still have to grasp hold of some quality angles that are deemed ok-ish.
