Then and Now

August 7, 2017

Hello lovely blog readers, 

 

This week we wanted to do an update on our first blog of the year! If you remember back in January Capture House hired me, Sam. I just wanted to show you guys how I started with the company to where I am now. The skills I have learnt in all aspects of media from photography to social media management to design have been invaluable and I wanted to share that with you all.

I'll start with photography and show my progression over the months. When I joined Capture House back in January I had experience in headshot photography and food photography. Now I have developed my own style in various other types of photography including commercial, event, weddings and sport. On Friday I went out on a headshot session and when I went through the edited photos I was genuinely surprised at the difference 8 months can make. Here's a little example: 

The left headshot, which I took on Friday, is taken slightly wider to allow for cropping to 8x10 and it's a far more natural look, which is right for this type of photography. Over the months I have learnt new ways to edit photos which I think have improved my photos drastically, I've also developed better techniques in helping my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera. 

In terms of food photography I feel like the improvement is even greater. Below are a few snaps I took recently of food from several local business':

 

 Here's an example of my work before Capture House: 

 

As you can see (hopefully anyway!) the colours are a lot cleaner on the more recent photos. Plus I think the recent photos pop out a lot more and the primary focus is on the main element of the food. 

In terms of Design work I came to Capture House with a very basic knowledge and little understanding. Since then I've gone on to design 50 pages brochures, intricate flyers and detailed posters. To show a little progression here's a menu I designed in my first month for The Cork House and one I designed this month for them:

 

So far I feel like I've come on leaps and bounds with the help of Capture House and I cannot wait to see my improvement by this time next year!  

 

Speak soon,

 

Sam
