Rural Photography – Drought relief Fundraiser

Like many people over the past months, I've seen the distressing photos and videos of drought stricken Aussie farms, the skeletons of livestock dead from starvation and dehydration. The exhausted faces of farmers desperately fighting to keep their remaining livestock and themselves alive and the harrowing stories of those who just cannot face another day. I don't know about you, but I am disgusted at the way our elected government is hell bent on sending our farmers to the...

Boyup Brook Rural Landscape Photography – South West Photography

I have just changed over from using Photoshop CS4 to Lightroom 2.4 for processing my photographs – all I can say is I wish I had done this sooner!  As much as I resist learning new computer programs (fuzzy mummy brain I think), Lightroom is so quick to use compared to CS4, the time out I have taken to learn how to use it is going to be a huge benefit in improving my workflow, especially for batch processing. ...

Farm Family Photography sessions – Fundraising project for Drought Relief

Last week I wrote about a special project that I will be undertaking to help fundraise for several of the registered rural charities assisting Australian farmers and livestock struggling to survive the crippling drought in the eastern states. No-one knows when this drought will break, but what we do know is that financial assistance is needed immediately and its also going to be needed long term.  To help both short and long term, this drought project has two parts...

Boyup Brook Lifestyle Family Photography | Michelle Wrighton

As a lifestyle family, children and pet portrait photographer, I find it is helpful to know a little about the people and pets I photograph, their personalities and unique traits.  This is why I have a questionnaire for my clients to fill in before their session - the answers also help me to plan and customise the experience to suit my clients individual needs. In preparation for their recent family photography session, mum, Estelle, told me that some of...

10 Reasons Why Family Portraits are Important

We get so focussed on the future that we forget about our past. Children grow so quickly; the years pass in a blink of an eye and the next thing you know they are off to boarding school and university.  Family portraits document your family’s growth and progress through the years and capture sweet memories of your life together. Life gets so busy and stressful, you don’t think you ever will, but it’s easy to forget special characteristics, unique...
