Portland Oregon Fun Photographer
Living here in Portland, Oregon during the winter is difficult for us moms who just want their kids to play outside! So when we get a semi-nice day where the kids can enjoy our backyard, we take advantage of it. These photos were 2 different days from the past few weeks when my kids just happened to be playing outdoors around sunset, which is my favorite time to take photographs! So I grabbed my camera and these are some of the photos I was able to capture. Obviously this was before we got all the snow this week 😉 Portland Oregon Fun Photographer
This first set of photos are of my kids playing on the trampoline… one of their favorite things to do outside.
Now onto the best part! I had seen this technique used before and really wanted to try it out. It’s done by carefully holding a copper pipe (purchased from Home Depot!) up to your camera lens, and the light reflects off of it and makes this light ring. It’s called Ring of Fire and its gorgeous! You get different effects depending on how you tilt it. It works best at sunset when the sun is low in the sky, and definitely can’t be done on a cloudy day, so I was waiting for a sunny day to try it out.Portland Oregon Fun Photographer
I love this next one because it looks like she’s drawing on the light with a magic wand 🙂
