All in the moment
Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog again! I got a new lens this week! The 50mm 1.4 lens and I was eager to test it out over the weekend. So let me tell you more about my shoot with Dara at the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken.
I contacted the sweet Dara to see if she was up for a shoot. I've done a shoot with her once before, but it was a pretty short shoot, so I was happy to shoot with her again.
We went to the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken, a vast complex of monumental heated greenhouses in the park of the Royal Castle of Laeken in Brussels. I wanted to shoot here for a while now but the royal complex can only be visited each year during a two-week period in April–May, when most flowers are in full bloom.
It was very crowded at the time while we were there shooting, so we weren't able to get a lot of different shots. We spent more time trying to get past the crowd then actually shooting lol. But because I had my new 50mm 1.4 lens I focused on taking portraits near/with the flowers in the greenhouses. The 50mm is a very soft lens which fits perfectly with the vibe I was going for. Soft, sweet and feeling like the model is inviting you in the moment.
