Inquisitive minds

One of the things I love the most about photographing babies is seeing the world through their eyes.  For babies everything is new and interesting. Different textures, sounds and looking at their own reflection pique their curiosity.

Happy Valentine’s day!

Spiderwebs

Considering spiders are not the most popular creature it’s amazing what that are capable of creating.   I love to photograph spiderwebs. Something about the slightly disorganised order and the way the light reflects off them. They really are quite magical.

Catching waves

  There is something very dramatic about capturing waves on camera, especially during sunset.  It seems I was not the only one trying to photograph and catch the wonderful moment when the waves hit the rocks and splash in the air!    

music and photos

The other day I had the pleasure to photograph talented  musician Daniel Hoffman.  Here are just a small selection of photographs from the session.

Looking at or away from the camera

natalie4 | May 14th, 2015 - 7:11 pm

After this particular portrait session I started thinking about whether I prefer the subject looking at or away from the camera.  I concluded that  there is something nice about both. When the subject stares at the camera it feels as if he is somehow engaging and communicating with the audience in a direct way whereas when he is looking away there is a feeling that there is something else going on besides what we can see in the frame and a feeling that we are more of an onlooker capturing an expression or moment.

Portraits at midday

natalie4 | May 7th, 2015 - 4:45 pm

On a sunny day in spring, I would not ideally choose to do a portrait session at noon. However often there is no choice and we can’t always pick the perfect hour when relying on natural light. So with a bit of extra thought we can avoid  harsh shadows and unflattering light by  staying away from direct sunlight and opting for shaded areas where the light is more diffused such as, underneath buildings or trees, and indoor spaces which are well lit from outside.

 


Springtime

I love taking photographs in spring!  Everything looks more colourful, the winter is finally over and the days are getting longer.

Holiday fun

Together with Style coach Elana Shap (www.stylecoaching.co.il) I spent the morning photographing this lovely couple who were visiting from Germany.
Rather than buying each other a christmas gift, Jan and Vanessa decided  to have a photo session done (a yearly tradition of theirs).

 

Thoughts on street fashion

natalie4 | February 25th, 2015 - 2:22 pm

On Monday Elana Shap, Style Coach and I headed off to the Noga area to see who we could find to interview and photograph for our monthly Jpost fashion article.  We look for people who have an interesting style or look like they have put some thought into what they are wearing. It is not important where their clothes came from or how expensive they were. As well as photographing these people, it’s always interesting to find out who is behind the face and in this case clothing. We walk past thousands of people each day without knowing much about them. How often do you pass someone in the street and make an assumption about what they do or what “type’ of person they may be. What I enjoy the most about this piece is that we never know who we are going to find and what to expect. Every article is a new experience!

Our first interviewee found while we were having morning coffee.  See the final article next Friday 6th March!

fleeting moments and waiting to click

When taking photographs and in this case outdoor photographs, sometimes the moment catches you by surprise while at other times you wait for the perceived image.   I was at the beach on a photoshoot for a documentary movie taking portraits, when I suddenly caught sight of this beautiful flock of birds. I wish they [...]
