Mother & Daughter Shoot|Trina Baker Photography Lawrence, KS

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 ❤️

Pink Lily Macros|Trina Baker Photography, Lawrence, Kansas

Some quick photos shot with the Lensbaby Velvet 56 using the macro function. This lens is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Although it is a little tough to focus, especially at f1.8, it creates such dreamy photos that it’s worth it to me to spend some time getting the perfect focus. I edited these images with AlienSkin Exposure 7 using the Fuji 100 film preset. I like how the images have a vintage film look.

Lensbaby Velvet 56|Trina Baker Photography

I got an early birthday present yesterday! A lovely new Lensbaby Velvet 56. It is such an elegant lens. The build quality is solid and the focus ring is so smooth. I just couldn’t wait to shoot with it! Today, after lunch with friends, I ventured out around downtown Lawrence to try it out. I found so many flowers, my fave, and just had a blast shooting with this lens on my D800. I shot on my Mobi EyeFi card so I could transfer the images to my iPad to edit with VSCOcam.  Love the result. I can’t wait to shoot some portraits next week with my senior model.

Sara In The Studio| Trina Baker Photography

Sara came into the studio and we played dress up with the crinolines, tulle and neck pieces I have been working on. So many combinations! She was a natural in front of the camera. We shot in a few different outfits but I wanted to play with these immediately. I edited these photos on my iPad using the RePix and VSCOcam apps. Fun to play around with adding a bit of texture and painterly effects to the work. I will share more from this shoot soon ❤️

Spring Iris Macro|Trina Baker Photography

I want to print some floral images for my kitchen so today I went wondering around with my Lensbaby to get some shots. The Iris had some really amazing abstract shapes to them and I decided to shoot them with the +10 macro attachment. Edited in AlienSkin with the Polaroid 669 with cyan preset, I love how ethereal and whimsical these turned out. Now to pick three for the kitchen. Sigh. Decisions. Which three would you choose? Leave a comment!
