Family Shoot- Ramsgate - Ben Bowles

What was the shoot?

Family portrait session, Ramsgate. Kent

So how did it go?

Awful weather outside (we had planned an outdoor group shot), absolutely no natural light (the rented house's curtains wouldn't open) and a small space to fit 13 people in the photos. However, as a portrait photographer I take a great amount of satisfaction from trying to make great photos in these circumstances. The old adage that asks for solutions not problems was useful in this shoot! No natural light? Set up the studio lights! Weather rubbish? Be original inside! No space? They're all family, so get close to one another!. It also helped that the 3 generations of family were lovely to work with!

Favourite shot

Taken right at the end of the shoot when packing up my stuff, I spotted a moment between father and daughter. I love the look the little one is giving the camera!
