Natural Light Photo Studio

I photograph in many lighting situations. My favorite lighting is natural light. And it seems natural light studios are all the rage of high-end photographers around the country these days. I’ve always used natural light more than studio lighting (though some situations defintely call for studio lighting) because natural light is so much softer, kinder and has a fresh feeling that I really like. I think it works really well for children and babies especially.

We’re lucky at our studio because our space accomodates both studio lights and natural north side soft light bouncing in from neigboring warehouses.

What natural light does for our photos can be seen in this baby’s eyes and the beautiful healthy skin tones.

Montana Photography Workshops

Filed under Uncategorized • Written by Doug Loneman @ 5:54 pm

We’re getting closer and closer to nailing down the classes and subjects for the Montana Photography Workshops this winter, spring and summer. Recently I played with a friends point and shoot image from Monet’s garden outside Paris. The original image was flat and dull and not at all what she saw in person. After a little photoshop the image came to life, somewhat in the way Monet may have seen the scene. (see below)

We think our Workshop students will be empowered to create their own works of art after learning some easy and simplified photoshop toning techniques, editing and capturing images correctly when they are taken.

You can follow the workshops on Face Book or on the Montana Photography Workshops blog. Classes will be available for amateurs who just took a digital camera out of the box at Christmas and also for emerging and professional photographers who want to learn secrets to making images that sell.

The Kinney Kids came in today for Kolt’s 4-month-old photos. These kids are so great; sweet with lots of personality. We needed no props. I like to keep it simple and straight forward so nothing gets in the way of showing off kids’ personalities. I look at these images of the Kinney kids and know they are the kind of kids you’d like to know.

Livingston Wedding Party

I am working thru wedding edits from a recent wedding in Livingston, Montana and came across this wedding party group photo and was reminded that this bunch was so much fun. I assured them the photo would not look “stupid” as I told them to kick like the Rockettes. It was the joy and fun in their faces that came toward the end that I wanted.

Wouldn’t be great if we could all be this happy everyday and be thankful for what we have.

Loving Parents + Ducks + Bright Colors = Happy Baby

Every baby loves to be sans clothes. This baby has everything she needs to make her happy; especially two loving, attentive parents.

Mom and Son Bond

Yesterday I was photographing this newborn when his mom reached in to soothe his uneasiness of not being in her arms. It was that moment that I could see clearly the strong connection and bond mother and son already have.

Today Frank and his human family came into the studio for a session. Poor Frank was so apprehensive about the whole thing. He couldn’t be any sweeter. He’s the kind of dog who needs a hug, I look at dogs and see their nature and in Frank I see sweetness and gentleness, so that is how I photographed him.
