Winter Girls – Portrait Photography in the Snow

20141230-DSC_8445

I came back home for winter holidays and my lovely cousins came to visit. A couple of days after christmas it began to snow so of course we had to use this opportunity and take a few winter portraits messing around in the snow. We didn’t plan anything in advance & didn’t have much time, so while I see room for improvement I’m quite happy with the way these pictures turned out despite (or because?) the spontaneity. What do you think? Do you have a favourite?

Winter in Paris

Paris by Reverine

In December I managed to spend a few days in Paris, some of it was spent wandering around the Christmas markets. It was incredibly warm and sunny but it didn’t diminish the Christmas atmosphere of the city. Next week I’m moving to Paris for real. So naturally I’m terrified that it’s not gonna work out. I’ll keep you posted, in the meantime you can check out my photos.

Winter Landscapes in Auvergne, France

Winter arrived to Murat before the end of November and snow covered everything. Thankfully, most days it was still sunny which made for some great landscape photos. Here are some pictures taken in and around Murat, Saint Flour and Dienne in the Auvergne region in France. Enjoy.

Winter was always my favourite season. At first mainly because both my birthday and Christmas are in winter, so I had a lot to look forwards to. Now, while I still look forwards to these things my winters feel more melancholy, which is fine by me as in winter you can always blame your un-cheerful dispositon on the weather. Winter feels with you, doesn’t force you to go out and meet people because it’s freezing cold and snow on the ground so you can just stay home, covered underneath a blanket and read books or catch up on the TV shows everyone talks about. That’s why I don’t like autumn and spring, winter doesn’t pretend that things are better than they are. Oddly enough I like summer, because summer means freedom, at least for now.

These photos were taken on the Christmas morning, I woke up and the garden was filled with snow. After breakfast I ventured outside to take pictures of the stunning icicles and managed to take some self portraits. I stupidly forgot the most important part of my tripod in Glasgow which made it completely useless, so I had to improvise. I propped up my camera on the stairs to my house and after some manoeuvring got a good angle. I would have preferred to get more snow on the pictures but due to these limitations I couldn’t. But I still got acceptable results, which only shows that you don’t need to have all fancy gear to take a good picture it’s just a bit more challenging.

Lady Winter

I had a great time shooting this winter themed editorial with the lovely model Jenna McGuiness with makeup by the very talented Diana Mackenzie. The weather was good, although not very winter-looking but it got pretty cold. Despite that the shoot was a success, and both girls were amazing, and didn’t mind being dragged through mud and nearly falling into water just to get the shots. Now, that’s dedication.
