Well, we had plenty of it for Stacey & Guy's wedding at The Blue Pigeons in Worth, Deal Kent. However, this lovely couple didn't need luck - they had love.

Around 40 people attended the intimate ceremony which included and involved Stacey's nieces being flower girls and with Stacey's Nan being present it truly was an occasion with every generation! I love seeing when kids enjoy weddings and they all loved this one - especially throwing confetti.
Rain relented right as we decided to light up the sparklers outside and from there the music started. Blankets covered those wanting to get cosy and "Pimp your own gin" was there for those wanting to celebrate.
Stacey & Guy I LOVED photographing your wedding day - your family is super fun and the personal touches throughout the day made it so clear to see the love that surrounds you. I hope that marriage brings you much joy over the coming years

Scantlebury-Roach Wedding 2019, Deal Kent Wedding https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/scantlebury-roach-wedding-2019-deal-kent-wedding On the 31st August, on a bright Saturday in Deal, Sam & Madeline became husband and wife.

Deal is a beautiful and quiet seaside town however on a Saturday morning it can feel like London with all the hustle and bustle - yet tucked away in the calm of middle street and a house on the strand Madeline & Sam dressed and headed down to Deal Town Hall by foot and by Jaguar.
Though Madeline & Sam have known each other for many years they have only had the company of their dainty daughter Daphne for the latest two years and she behaved superbly throughout the day. 
Weddings can be serious, but the Scantlebury Roach clan were raucous and full of cheers, laughs, and emotion throughout the whole day - Beth and I as photographers felt just as much part of the family!
The Astor Theatre was a field of flowers for the sit down meal and it was miraculously turned over for partying through the night with performances from Mercedes Scantlebury.
It truly was a pleasure and a joy to photograph your wedding Sam & Madeline, I hope these photos make you laugh, cry and delight in your wonderful family!

Oakley Wedding 2019, The Old Kent Barn https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/oakley-wedding-2019-the-old-kent-barn-tokb On the 20th July, at the stunning venue The Old Kent Barn, Karim & Jo became Mr and Mrs Oakley.

With the morning weather threatening to turn against us our hopes became reality as the sun broke out at midday.
Jo & Karim have been together for over 12 years and have had the joy of their son Theo for the majority - Theo was amazing throughout the wedding, with the help of his buddy dog "Cilla" and two helpers he smiled through the service, greeted all the family and on top of that delivered a tear-jerking speech. He is a true inspiration on what was a joyful day.

The Oakley family is as solid as the oak tree: full of love and life and their wedding day was just a glimpse of that.

Congratulations, Mr & Mrs Oakley (+ Theo + Cilla!)

Hennessey Wedding 2018, Deal Kent https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/hennessey-wedding-2018-deal-kent-wedding Ethan and Jess married on a stunning summer day in May. While Ethan patiently waited in the ceremony venue, their home church of St George's Church in Deal, Jess got ready at her parents home a stone's throw over the road.
It was always a dream of Jess's to walk from her old home over the road to the church she had grown up in and thankfully the sun was out just for that.
Jess & Ethan are evidently best friends and the day was surrounded by exactly that: friendship and family. 
Following a wonderful marriage ceremony cakes and champagne were handed out to all; not only that, a popcorn machine made for a special treat!
It is always ideal when the distance is minimal between the ceremony and reception - this allowed us to capture some lovely couple photos down Middle Street.
The speeches were hilarious and the tears were flowing on the top table. The Hennessey and Ball family wear their hearts on their sleeves and all 90 people in the reception were included in the celebrations.
Those celebrations continued well into the evening and a glow stick and sparkler tunnel were the perfect send off to a perfect wedding day.
Jess and Ethan, you guys are a wonderful team.

Baker Wedding 2018, Dover Wedding https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/baker-wedding-2018-dover-wedding Michael & Emma married at St Pauls Roman Catholic Church in Dover on a stunning summer Saturday in June.
Help for Emma's mother came all the way from Texas in making the bouquets - it was beautiful to see everybody helping to put finishing touches on every detail: the confetti, flowers, necklaces and even the dress!
When Emma was finally handed over to Michael it was evident to see how comfortable they felt in each others' company - the nerves appeared to peel away and, surrounded by friends and family, they were ready to make their marriage vows.
The faith of the family was infectious as so many of them played a part in making the worship happen, including Michael's mother beautifully leading us in song.
After the formal ceremony Michael, Emma & I made our way to a stunning location to shoot some couple photos in some stone ruins.
Meanwhile the celebrations were just getting started over at Emma's mothers' farm. Pimms was flowing, food was cooking and the sun was shining.
The laughter continued into the night and turned to competitiveness as the men played a football match dressed in their suits!
Blessed by the weather, the Bakers had a truly idillic wedding day of fun, laughter and family from all over the world.
Michael & Emma, you complement each other greatly. It was a pleasure capturing your special day.

Thankfully the weather stayed dry for the entire day which made for stunningly even lit portraits!
Adam and Liberty have known each other for over eight years and have been dating for three: their marriage has been rooted on a strong friendship full of laughter. It was evident to see that they are the best of friends.
The service was full of worship which Liberty's sister Lou led. It was great to see so many of their family and friends coming together to enjoy the day.
It's lovely not having to travel far between ceremony and reception and for this wedding it was as if the locations had been made for the Gardners; with a relative having a gorgeous garden and the reception over the road, the timings were seamless.
Mr and Mrs Gardner, you were a lovely couple to work with: your love is clear to see and I know you will make a beautiful family together.

3 Head Shot Photography Top Tips https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/3-head-shot-photography-top-tips

 

 

"What are your top 3 tips for head shot photography?"

Ooo, another good question!

Head shot photography is essential for a professional image.

It is no good reusing that "valencia" filter selfie to show that you are serious about your trade.

 

Am I right?

 

Whether you are an actor, dancer, performer or a business professional, you need a head shot that looks sharp, but also shows your personality.

So, for each of these reasons for needing head shots, here are my top tips.

Tip #1

Be you.

 

If you are smiley, be smiley.

If you are serious, be serious.

Equally, if the reasons you are needing the head shots require a certain facial expression, bring it.

There is only one you, and you are the best one at being you. People want to be able to see YOU in your head shot.

Tip #2

Light it properly

 

I am thankful to have 8 years worth of experience under my belt.

Ranging between fashion photography and almost every other type of portraiture.

Before you arrive in studio, I have sat down thinking through who YOU are, and what lighting is best going to suit you. Beauty dishes, accent lighting, fill lights, natural light; you name it, it's in my skillset.

Tip #3

Choose wisely

 

When you have finished your photo shoot, within the next week or two a process called "curation" takes place. This is where I remove the "chaff" (the naff photos) and put together a selection of photos for you to choose from.

Now, if you just need the one image, that's fine!

But if you have spent the time in studio & location with me, you are going to want to choose a few. Thankfully, the more images you buy, the more discount is applied!

VARIETY IS KEY. Choose the photos that represent you best.

 

Enjoying these blog posts? Let me know! I am a real person, and like a bit of encouragement.

Thanks!

Well, here's some of the big kids!

Alison had the idea of booking a family shoot during the 75th Birthday surprise weekend away for her mother Carole. It worked out really well, as family were down from far away to celebrate Carole.

The photos are gorgeous, and they co-ordinated their colours really well.

Young children, are so cute.

They also prove pretty hard to photograph in a "set up" fashion.

Now, "set up" isn't better than "natural", and visa versa. If you get the shot, you get the shot.

For the Soto's, the natural shots really captured them with where they are at as a family right now. They were so pleased with the images!

3 Portrait Photography Top Tips https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/3-portrait-photography-top-tips

 

 

"What are your top 3 tips for portrait photography?"

Great question!

I've been teaching photography for the last couple of months to two students, and we are beginning to get on to working with people.

Almost 100 million of you own an iPhone: and I won't be surprised if you, that are reading this, have one.

If you're one of the 4 people that don't own an iPhone, fear not, you probably have two cameras on your phone. Happy days.

Summer is just around the corner and there will be times that you are out with your family and you want to take a photo to remember the day. How beautiful!

Tip #1

Shoot lots

Different facial expressions, different angles, different lighting.

Don't overkill the moment, but you want to be able to tell a little story.

The great thing with Instagram now-days is that they enable you to upload a few photos at a time to tell the story. You also won't have an arm as steady as a pro or as steady as a tripod, so limit the possibility of having the dreaded blurry photo and click click click!

Tip #2

Limit distractions

Objects, buildings or people in the background are rarely things that enhance the look of a portrait. You want the attention to go straight to the subjects in the portrait. Using a long focal length or narrow depth of field will help you to blur backgrounds, but when you're using your phone with a large depth of field, make sure you haven't got a dog poo bin in the background, or some randomer bending over.

Sometimes this is hard to do because of the location - but you do have the option to crop in post production #helpful.

Tip #3

Have some fun

I haven't had a family go away from a shoot thinking "wow that was boring" - we keep it fun, and have a laugh during the shoot. Obviously the corporate photography I do is a completely different context, but who wants a boring photography experience? Not me.

Going back to my note about the summer - really live in the moment (#cheesy). Seriously! Don't spend so long on your phone trying to get the best filter while you're out with your friends / family, have fun, and be savvy enough to capture the moment on your phone.

(psst, for the record, I shoot family photography, so book me for a session and I'll shoot memorable portraits of your family!)

Thanks!

Self Portraits 2017 https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/self-portraits-2017 Self Portraits

Portraits are not easy - self portraits are REALLY not easy.

If you know me at all, you will know my "look" has changed significantly in the last two years or so. I've gone from having short to long hair.

I look really different.

So, I set out to take some new self portraits. I put together a studio set up and new the type of look I was going for.

Here was what I achieved:

Now, the other thing that has changed over the last two years is that I've gone and got myself a wonderful girlfriend, Bethany-Rose White:

 

 

Thank you Jesus.

When I showed Beth the self portrait I achieved, her reaction was underwhelming.

And a bit disappointing.

But the thing we have learnt in our relationship is complete honesty - she knew that the self portrait I took may have looked sharp and professional, but it didn't represent my personality.

After a lot of denial, I had to agree with her.

She then took this portrait of me on her polaroid camera when we were out on a date together: I knew it was tonnes better.

Thank you Betty!

What do you think?

Bob Dowsett https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/bob-dowsett Bob Dowsett

Well, this was an interesting shoot.

A couple of weeks ago I had an enquiry for a head shot shoot.

Fairly simple, you would think.

I then proceeded to have a chat with a lovely chap on the phone, from Australia, 81 years of age, who called himself "Crocodile Bob" - we booked the shoot!
Trouble was, Crocodile Bob didn't have a mobile, or email.

How did he get in contact with me then?

I'm glad you asked; Bob went through the lovely Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury and they recommended me to take his head shots!

I felt privileged.

The tough part was getting him his invoice, and finding him for the shoot.

I then found him in a pub over an hour early after receiving a phone call from a local newsagents who figured it was me that he was looking for. We ended up having a pint in the local pub and then we did the shoot.

Considering all of that, Bob did spiffingly. Check out the shots!

So no matter how old you are, or what communications issues you may have, I can cater for them. Here's the evidence.

How do you choose a location? https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/alice-keenan

 

 

 

I put out a message last week inviting you to ask any question to do with photography and here was one of the questions:

"How do you go about choosing a location for a family shoot?"

Good question.

If you're lucky enough to have been brought up in a family that did stuff together; going out together and doing fun things, you'll probably have a handful of places that have some sort of meaning to them.

For me and my family, the beach and the glen up in Walmer are places we love to go and walk our dog at. But for you, it may be a specific part of the beach, your very own garden, or a street you always tend to walk through together.

So when I have a booking with a family, I ask them the question:

"Is there a place of significance or meaning that you and your family like to go?"

If your not a deep and meaningful family you're not necessarily boring, but you may not have a particular place you like to go to with your family. That's not a problem!

Here, I then have a list of places that look LOVELY and are fun to go to.

We then choose a place that suits each family.

Simples!

If you have a question you'd love to ask, send me a message or comment on this post.

Thanks!

Who's ready for an honesty bomb? Alice was insanely hard to cater for - she's my sister, and pickier than 99% of the clients I've worked with.

I love her to bits though, and it's her vision of excellence which sets her above the average performer. She pushed me, I pushed her, and we achieved some of the best head shots I've shot to this day.
I'm not being funny though, you could be in these shots if you booked with me. You might not be blonde and look like Alice, but I'm sure you'll still look beautiful.

You wouldn't think this set of photographs was shot in the middle of October!

But it sure was! Lovely family: super friendly, and they have bought a load of products to create an inventive collage on a feature wall in their house.

Brilliant idea.

This shoot was so beautiful. And as I post this, I miss the summer!

Hazell & Patrick are soon to be married and wanted to get some post engagement photos. So, we shot at their house and a nearby park which they love to hang out at.

Soon, there will be no more green, and just twigs.

That makes me sad.

But the photos we got were stunning, and the products they chose were choice!

Julia came prepared.

She booked her hairdresser the day of the shoot and came to the shoot looking sharp!

We shot some beautiful head shots in studio, and then headed down to a local location (within 15 miles of Deal).

All it takes is a glance at these head shots and you KNOW they are far superior to taking a selfie.

Travelling is so much fun, especially when you're visiting warm countries.

Damien, the professional singer, has been there, done that, got the t-shirt, and I'm pretty sure he's my age... Jealous!

Since looking into independent work, Damien wanted to get some professional portraits to use for his social media, tour posters, artwork and YouTube.

He came to the right place ;)

You'll recognise the name, no doubt, from the photos I took of Alex Rose a little while back.

Well, AM Marketing, the company that booked me, loved the photos so much and saw what a difference they made that they booked me for themselves!

I must say: good move!

In 2016 more and more companies are finding that iPhone photography for businessmen & women just doesn't quite cut it, and the need for professional photographers is still very much there.

Group Head Shots https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/4/group-head-shots Group Head Shots - Deal!

It's nearly that time of year when booking group head shots is wise: exams are just around the corner and before you know it University will be beckoning!

With this deal, booking with groups of more than 5, you can save an awful lot of money.

To show you how much you can save, check this out.

​If one dancer, for example, gets in touch, it would cost them £140 for the session, & £15 for a digital image. This is professional industry standard.

But, when that same dancer gets together 4 or more friends, she can book with me for just £35 each.

It's that simple.

I'm really thankful for the amount of assistants I have - I couldn't do all of this stuff on my own, and I'm not ashamed to admit that. If anything, it's nice being able to talk through my ideas with someone, and to pass on any knowledge I've been fortunate to gain over my years in business. A great leader once said "pass it on, just pass it on" - I want to do that with my photography and business savvy; pass it on.

Brian and Clare booked me for their parents' 60th Wedding Anniversary, they came down to Deal and had a big party going on. It was so well organised that I thought they were local - nope! They'd come down from a few hours away, family travelled in from as far as Australia!

Here's a few of the shots - it was a brief session, but we achieved exactly what was desired.

Emma Seymour... Express yourself! https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/10/emma-seymour Emma Seymour - Head Shots

Emma booked with me earlier in September for some head shots and portraits. Similar to Kate Spencer, a previous client, she wanted us to shoot both on location and studio. Unfortunately for us, the weather turned against us and we had to postpone the location shots (unless we wanted to get absolutely soaked).

Emma is a professional singer, dancer & performer. She absolutely smashed it - her confidence grew as the shoot went on, and actually put her in great stead for the location images later in the month.

Client = Friend. https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/10/kate-spencer Kate Spencer - Head Shots

Clients always become friends after shoots, but when they're friends beforehand it's even funner! This was the case here - I've known Kate since the age of 11. Kate is a professional singing teacher, dancer & actress.

Talented much!

We shot both in studio and location - Kate also wanted some full length, professional dance images, so we made sure we had enough room in studio to achieve the best results.

And wow, you have to check out the second image of her; it's stunning.

So... I'm now a celebrity photographer.

That sounds cool, right?

Gemma got in contact with me to have some portraits,

promo and head shots done for her business.

Gemma is a presenter for CBeebies Swashbuckle Show and she

wanted some in her costume, but also some fashion-Y portraits.

It was great spending time in studio & location with her, we got some great shots!

Alice Keenan Portrait https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/8/alice-keenan-portrait Alice Keenan - Spontaneous Portraits

Growing up is strange.

It's even stranger when it's your little sister you still see as being a 10 year old, turn 18. Mind blown.

I was shooting for Parochial School recently (unfortunately I can't show you the images!) & as the sun began to set the light outside looked beautiful against a bush, so I took Alice outside to photograph her.

Have a look, and pray I don't cry too much when she leaves...

David Denton @ Domus Organising new this too; he wanted the option of formal, studio head shots or location portraits. With this in mind, I gave him the choice by shooting both.

The difference is huge between having a photo your husband or wife took on their iPhone compared with hiring a professional to take time orchestrating a sharp, high end photograph.

Here's one of David anyway; a great bloke to have met.

Hey, you... Listen closely.

I've just launched a brand new type of photography that no other professional photographer offers in the United Kingdom. It has generated a monumental amount of intrigue and enquiry, gentlemen are getting excited about their proposals, and they want ME to capture it.

 

"Covert, undercover 'catch the proposal' photography."

hush hush... {Check it out!}

 

 

You may have seen the photos I took of Emm & Jonny recently, as Jonny proposed. This is now something I am offering with my business to ALL of you!

Are you a bit of a hopeless romantic? A soon-to-be Fiancé thinking of proposing soon? Got a special plan of doing it, or, just want the proposal captured? Well, this is for you!

So keep your eyes peeled!

But, Emm & Jonny got there first.

Well, Jonny did. Jonny got in contact with me with an idea: an idea to propose to Emm. Not just any idea though, he had a plan of where he would hide the ring, where he would take her, and how he would propose.

This in mind, he asked ME to covertly document the whole thing! It involved me hiding in a bush for over 15 minutes until they hit the rendezvous point... True story!

And wow, the pictures, are so authentic and beautiful.

Rumer Carey https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/3/rumer-carey Rumer Carey - Portraits

Your motivation for getting portraits is normally different to the next person.

​Rumer wanted to get some up to date, fancy looking portraits for her Facebook profile, but also wanted to be able to send the shots off to modelling agencies to get feedback, and to see if there was any potential work there.

Great idea! Why not eh?

Rumer lived a good hour and a half away from me, so travelling to Deal was a bit of a big request - so we met half way in Canterbury, and got some beautiful shots on location.

A great idea Rumer had was to bring a close friend with her: photo shoots can sometimes be a bit nerve racking, naturally when you've got a massive camera in your face! But I was happy to agree with her bringing a friend along (I also knew her, which was great too!).

Have a ganda :)

Here's a little update with my business.

If you go to my "pricing and packaging" page you'll see some updates.

IN FACT I have been connected with the amazing supplier "Loxley Colour" & will be working with them for all your showcase needs!

Stay tuned, but there are some really exciting products I'm going to be getting in samples of over the coming weeks! Better personal quality.

AND, if you follow me on Facebook, you'll know that I launched a KIDS PORTRAITURE COMPETITION last week (which I'll be announcing at 8pm this evening!) - since then there has been a lot of interest with Kids Portraits - if this is something YOU'RE interested in, get in touch and book your shoot :)

I am so pleased with how these portraits turned out, and musician Bree Smith was chuffed too! She'll be moving soon, and this was a great opportunity to "send her off" from where she lived before.

We journeyed from her attic, to her garden and right to the end of her road and achieved some fantastic shots.

Amy Ogilvie https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/9/amy-ogilvie Amy Ogilvie - Portraits

Ever been to Westgate Gardens?

It's gorgeous.

So many flowers, it's ridiculous, and apparently really brave pigeons!

​The job here was portraiture, & with portraiture I normally begin in the clients home first - it's always naturally quite an odd experience at first, being photographed, so in starting in a home, we find that it is common ground, familiar ground more like. Which then gives us the ability to more comfortably move onto a snazzy location! (Westgate Gardens)

Check out the shots below - if you've noticed in my "Portfolio" section of my website, I'm developing "KIDS" photography! Do get in contact if you're considering this - your kids do grow up fast, and what better way to remember this particular stage in their lives by getting photographs taken!

Stay tuned ;)

Recent Lightstock https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/9/recent-lightstock Recent Lightstock Shots

I love a bit of routine.

And now I have my steady working days planned both with my Worship Leading job @ St George's & my Photography business, I have now been able to give a lot more time to stock photography too!

Here is some shots I've produced recently - both of praying & the bible.

DEEP.

The way Lightstock works, in short, is that churches or charities create an account & buy photographs (digitally) to use in their media/graphic creations. So if somebody wants a picture of women gathering around a bible over coffee, they can search for that - if nobody has shot that yet, they can "request" a shot.

Brilliant eh?

Kent Officer Chris Tompkins retired a couple of weeks ago - he wanted a photographic record for his mother, but also wanted some head shots for his film extra work.

His police attire was really impressive - medallions, whistle chain & hat, he looked very smart.

Like every shoot of mine, I always get to know the client during and before the shoot.

Secondly, I also got a new lens... 70-200 2.8f Nikkor lens for all you shooters out there! I used it for this shot :)

Clive was recently doing up his website, and like many of us professionals, needed some decent looking head-shots!

But Clive wanted something unique, not too corporate, so I suggested him go for a Portrait session instead, whilst also doing a few 3/4 length studio shots (which we did on a pink background, effective or what?).

DAPA Girls https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/8/dapa-girls DAPA Vocational Group

I was booked by a good customer of mine - Sarah Dean, the founder of DAPA in Deal, Kent - recently. She asked if I could do head shots of a number of her vocational students, and a couple of group shots.

Now, my gear is reliable, and kept well, and for some reason I had a FREAK accident with my backdrop pole - it jammed, and we couldn't put it up!

So, we had to think on our feet, by cutting a square of material and securing it to the wall - meanwhile I'd called my Dad (what a babe) to come down and check it out. He took it to his garage, fixed it, and sent it back JUST in time for group shots.

Stressful stuff...

Photography isn't all about running through forests eh ;)

The Basfords https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/4/the-basfords Joel & Matthew Basford

A few weeks ago I was commissioned by these cheeky boys parents to shoot their portraits! Our choice of location was the beautiful Kersney Abbey!

On arrival of the location, we realised other people had realised what a good idea it would be to go to a park when the weather is nice... How annoying? KIDDING! We found the optimal places to shoot and we achieved some beautiful photographs.

Here is their choice! Pat, their mother, had in mind to give one of these shots as a gift to her mother (the boys' grandmother) - what a brilliant idea? With a wide variety of showcase products including canvas', acrylic prints & framed prints, there's an endless selection of gifts for loved ones.

Check them out!

Jasmine Le Ny https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/4/jasmine-le-ny Portraits for Jasmine Le Ny!

For this portraiture shoot we decided we would shoot at the "Golden hour" (the time when the sun is either rising or setting!), but, unfortunately, a massive cloud got in the way at the ideal time!

​So, with a bit of flash savvy, I created a sun out of a speed light, and after post production it looks remarkably realistic!

Would you agree?

It's great investing in a quality product that will help propel a business or a vision - values, warmth and personality can be caught on camera, and this is a prime example of it!

Wouldn't look quite the same with headshots caught on a Kodak or Instagram eh?

Recently I had a Skype call with the founders of "Lightstock" - a Christ Centred Stock Photography company in the USA: this basically means, they have photographers who contribute photo's that are "faith focussed" for churches, charities and organisations that need photo's like this.

The catch up involved us talking about how I was doing with my contributions to the company, and how I could improve my partnership with them...

The main step I have taken is to shoot at least one Stock Photography shoot per month.

Here was my first!

Retouching? https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/1/retouching What's the point in "Retouching" then?

I haven't heard this question raised much, but I can see how the average, non-photography-savvy customer would wonder & question what the heck I mean when I say about "retouching", so I thought I'd cover it with photographic help & explanation.

Sounding complicated eh?

It's really not!

Retouching is basically making slight adjustments to a perfectly good photograph, making it even better than before: getting rid of unwanted spots, stray hairs and more. I always tend to use the phrase/statement "I like to make my clients look like they normally would, but on a really good day."

Many photographers BLITZ their subjects' skin, making them look somewhat creepy and alien...

Not something you'd really want to hang on your wall eh?

I believe in taking time and precision with retouching; see my examples below. Note how the subjects still look the same! But "retouched".

Attached is a shot I did of model/make up artist Ryo Love!

Google her. She's awesome. Great lady, great model, great make up artist.

 

We photographed her in studio, on grey background, and I superimposed her into my old primary school!

Crazy.

Here's the shot anyway.

Check out the other PhotoTraining4U photographs I've shot in my portfolio on my website.

2013 Highlights https://www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/12/2013-highlights 2013 is over… And... It's 2014!!!

I've decided to design & make a new blog, built into my www.tomkeenanphotography.co.uk website!

2013 has been an awesome year for me, I feel really blessed.

I have...

- Finished my apprenticeship at PhotoTraining4U (Now "The Photographer Academy)

- Redefined my business from Fashion to Portrait, Headshots & Family Portraiture

- Sorted my studio out

- Shot for many clients

- Got myself a snazzy corporate business shirt (snazzy)

 

I'm stoked for 2014. Thank you so much for all your love, prayers and support. I pray this year is a great year for you. Big love, and big blessings.

 

All the best,

Tom Keenan
