Wedding Day In LFK| Trina Baker Photography

About a month ago I met with Lucas and Steph to talk about photographing their wedding. They were so obviously enamored with each other. So in love. I was excited for them an couldn't wait to document their day. We were met with a beautiful, sunny and crisp Kansas Autumn day. A rarity in November for sure. The trees around Danforth Chapel were brimming with color. It was the perfect backdrop for their photos. Here are a few of my favorite shots from their day.

Ms. Summer and I wondered around campus finding beautiful Autumnal scenes to shoot her senior photos. We the went to shoot some urban shots in lovely downtown Lawrence. Such a fun day with a fun girl❤

I was out and about in downtown Lawrence today. A cloudy, rainy day makes the Autumn colors pop! I simple had to share.

My Top 5 Photo Apps for iPad|Trina Baker Photography 

My iPad has quickly become my mobile editor of choice when I am out shooting. I have five go to apps that add drama and flair to my images. VSCO is the first app I open. It has some amazing film stocks and the editor is quite good as well. I love that you get a live preview of the filters and you can control the intensity of the filters as well.

After VSCO I take my image into The Mextures app.  From this app I can choose from over 150 textures to add to my photos. Complete with unlimited layers and the ability to change the opacity of those layers, it is a pretty powerful app. You can save your “formulas” share and import them on social media.

Another favorite texture app I use is Stackables.  Quite similar to Mextures with the addition of layer masks. Easy to use interface and pre loaded formulas. A really solid app.

Diptic is my favorite collage app. I use this app to add text to images and make collages of social media sharing. Easy to use and loads of extra features.

Lastly I love WordSwag. This app allows me to add fancy text to my photos. It even has a quote generator and a searchable database of patterns and photos if you want to use them.

So there you have it. I use a lot of other apps to process my photos but these are my favorite and I use them on almost every photos I edit. The iPad is a fun tool and is getting more powerful with every version.  

Yellow Calla Lilies|Trina Baker Lawrence, KS Photographer

I saw these Calla Lilies and wanted to shoot some floral images with my Lensbaby Velvet 56. I went to my studio to shoot in the amazing light. After taking a few shots I decided to explore the abstract nature of the flowers. The results are magical. The Velvet 56 allows you to focus really close and the nature of the lens adds a dreamy quality. Love.

I had the pleasure of shooting these lovelies last week. Their bond is so sweet and loving. We giggled, smiled, twirled in tutu’s and had a really fun afternoon shooting. Memories to be treasured for a lifetime❤

Grinter Farms|Trina Baker Photography

Here in Kansas we love our Sunflowers. After all, it is our state flower.  Over at Grinter Farm’s, Farmer Ted (yes that is his real name and not a nickname from 16 Candles) has planted one million sunflowers on his land for all to enjoy. The blanket of golden blooms has become a pilgrimage for fellow Kansans. A rite of passage from Summer to Autumn. It’s also an amazing place to take photos. Yesterday I had an engagement session scheduled so I arrived a bit early to snap some photos. 

Shot with my Nikon D800, 80-200mm, and Lensbaby Edge 80, then edited in Lightroom Mobile on my iPad. Trying to decide if I like the app or not, however, that’s for another post. Until then enjoy the photos!

Natural Light Studio| Trina Baker Photography

Recently I have been working to shoot in the “backlight” in my studio. I have a lovely space with giant ceilings and loads of natural light streaming in that I wanted to take advantage of. The first images I took I was scared to put my models in front of the window even though I knew it would be an amazing shot. Finally, after doing some research and some trial and error, I finally figured it out.

I hung some sheer white panels on the windows to diffuse the light. I also employed a large white sheet of foam core to reflect light back to the model. Finally, I set my camera to spot metering and shot at 640 ISO at f2.o.

The images below were all shot with my Nikon D800, 85mm f2.8 lens and some amazing Northern light. You can see more of my portrait work at Trina Baker Photography.

South Park Summer Blooms|Trina Baker Photography

I needed to get out and shoot for fun today. My portrait studio is keeping me quite busy this Summer. This afternoon I ventured down to South Park to take some photos with my Lensbaby Velvet 56. It is super hot here today so I only shot for about 15 minutes, however, I love the images I captured. These were edited with VSCOcam on my iPad with the “Essence” preset. I love the look of old matte film. Thanks for looking. Leave a comment so I know you were here ❤️
