We began the shoot around 5-5:15pm.  The wind was challenging at times and the sun was a bit harder than I had hoped.  Regardless of this, we were able to get about 42 great images in roughly 45 minutes!  This is a huge win considering one of your models is 23 months old!  Almost all of my images were taken with ambient (natural) light and no flash, however, on the last few I did use my speedlight to practice a few techniques.  All of my images were taken with my Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens.  Here are a few of my favorites:

First Blog Post! https://www.bobbycornwellphotography.com/blog/2020/5/first-blog-post Hello and welcome to my very first blog post!  If you haven't already read it or noticed, I am a photographer that is local to the Vail area.  I have been here for the last 14 years and have no plans to leave! I have always had an interest in photography but it wasn't until my wife bought me my first camera that I really got into it.  I soon realized that I wanted to make a career out of it.  For the last few years, I have been working to grow my business and hope to one day make it a full time career.  Enough about me as a person.  This blog is going to tell the story of my work through photos (and of course some text).  I hope to share the photos that I am most proud of, along with a little insight as to how and why they were captured.  I hope you enjoy and please, if you have any questions or comments, always feel free to reach out to me!


The New Normal   5-25-2020

I have been trying to use my longer lens more often on all family photoshoots.  Its a 70-200mm and 2.8 aperture, meaning its better in lower light.  Little did I know, I would be getting plenty of practice with it, but not by choice.  The social distancing hasn't given me a choice.  I have had a bit of time to shoot landscapes, which I truly enjoy.  However, I know I need to continually shoot families to sharpen my skills and constantly improve.  For this reason, I was very eager to take pictures for the Carson family.  They are longtime friends of mine and recently had a new addition to the family, making a family of 4.  They have a beautiful property and I was able to utilize it for the photoshoot.  I arrived around 9:45am and we began taking pictures around 10-10:15am.  Only two of the photos were taken with a flash, the rest were natural light and all were edited using Adobe Lightroom.
