Jorgensen Family: Hawaii Family Photographer.

I love the Jorgensen family. They're bright, they're happy, they're sassy (at least the Mrs. . . ), they're my cup of tea. I'm not gonna lie though folks, this was one of the most challenging shoots of my career. It was DARK DARK DARK when we started shooting. The light dropped so fast that my auto focus was even struggling catching my focal point so I was forced into manual focus a few times. . . try that with active kiddos. Sheesh! We had a blast nonetheless and got some awesome memories for this AWESOME family! Enjoy.

















This is the first in a series of mini shoots I did for friends of mine from our local playgroup. Each shoot was appx 20 min (usually a little less).

Ok, so I enlarged these expecting to find a bunch of noise, and didn't see any!
Beyond your creative talent, your technical skills are amazing.
Please, tell me. How in the world are these so clear and crisp without noise! They are absolutely beautiful!

I'm Natalie. said...

Millie,

Even enlarged these images are still pretty small. I wish I could say there was no noise at all when they're viewed full res full size. . . :) HOWEVER, obviously a good camera with good iso capacities is a GREAT friend in this kind of a situation. :)

I also reduced the noise a little in photoshop.

Wish I could just say, "yes I'm amazing!" But alas. . .
