All you need is love

Hello everybody !

I’m back from a four months break from the blog and I’m happy to blog again and show you these portraits I did last August.

It was a nice end of late afternoon summer day, a gentle breeze was blowing and a perfect summer evening was about to begin.  A field of goldenrod and a barn was all I needed to capture the love flowing between these two beautiful souls.

Joël and Audrey-Anne

Shooting portraits in natural light without flash or reflectors is always a challenge.  I definitely need a reflector to have better light.  Light in portraits is so important.  It’s so much better to have a good exposure in-camera than trying to fix it later.  I had fun doing this shooting and I would really love to do one in Winter next time I see them, and, of course,  also with my muse, Fanny.

A beautiful week to all of you !

  1. Wonderful work as always Jocelyne 🙂 You have a variety of talents with photography, from people portraits, to nature, to landscape and of course still life. You have a real skill for capturing your subjects emotions visually and I think your lighting worked out well. If you didn’t mention that I wouldn’t have known you were having any issues with lighting. Beautiful 🙂

      Ils ont vraiment bien compris ce que je recherchais comme émotion, ils ont été parfaits !
      Oui la deuxième photo est spéciale, on voit bien tout leur amour.
      Merci beaucoup ma belle amie, ça me fait tellement chaud au coeur, merci ! xxx

    Bonjour Jocelyne, heureuse de te retrouver sur ton blog! Une pause qui fait du bien. 😉

    Une belle série d’images, la lumière est superbe et les sujets aussi. Pas facile le portrait, tu as réussi haut la main. Un réflecteur aiderait sûrement, en lumière naturelle c’est l’ami du photographe. J’ai lu sur une blog que la photographe portait un tee-short blanc pour ajouter l’étincelle dans l’œil de son sujet. Pas bête, qu’en dis-tu?

    J’en profite pour te souhaiter de joyeuses fêtes!
    Anne xx

    • Jocelyne says:

      Allô Anne ! Merci beaucoup pour ton beau commentaire 🙂
      Le réflecteur est sur ma liste des nombreuses choses que je voudrais avoir pour la photo, il est aussi très abordable alors c’est sûr que j’en aurai un bientôt. Quelle bonne idée le t-shirt blanc, je n’y aurais jamais pensé, merci de m’en avoir fait part 🙂
      Joyeuses fêtes à toi aussi, profites-en bien ! xx

  7. Dear Jocelyne, It is lovely to see you here after such a long absence. In these portraits, you have beautifully captured the sun’s radiance and that of your young subjects. The photos affirm your quest to discover the light in everyone, in every situation. My very best to you, Vivian

    • Jocelyne says:

      Hi Vivian 🙂 It’s so nice to see you here, thank you so much for the great comment.
      If I could capture, even just a little, the light coming from the heart of these beautiful souls,
      then I can say these portraits were a success. Thanks again Vivian and I wish you a wonderful Holiday season 🙂

    Hello, Jocelyne. How wonderful to see a post! These photos are stunning! You’ve captured the love and the tenderness beautifully, and the lighting is excellent. I am a huge fan of outdoor lighting in portraiture. You captured the atmosphere wonderfully! Well done!

    • Jocelyne says:

      Hi Jenna ! I much prefer outdoor lighting for portraits than in a studio. I think the possibilities are endless to find a great location to do the shooting. I’ve been doing them mostly in fields with barns and now I would love to do one in a big city ! I hope it will be possible next time I go to Montreal. Thank you so much for the very nice comments, they’re always very much appreciated 🙂

  9. Wonderful images Jocleyne with the soft light adding a tenderness to the work. Glad to have you back in the blogging world and I do hope all is well. Have a wonderful and Happy Christmas and may the New Year bring you joy and good health.

    So glad you’re back – all the photographs are lovely, but the third one is particularly beautiful. Looking forward to seeing what your camera captures of the winter.

    • Jocelyne says:

      Thank you so much Tom ! I hope we’ll have more snow but we had some before Christmas and I could capture some beautiful winter scenery. Happy New Year to you 🙂

  12. David says:

    Merci beaucoup Evelyne ! Une très belle année à toi aussi. J’espère que les semaines et mois à venir seront moins noirs que cette terrible semaine… Et oui, nous avons besoin d’amour plus que jamais !

  19. Those are all beautiful portraits. My favourite is the third one. Such beautiful light. And, yes, all we need is love…
