Laura, a photographer based in Fife has reached the Final of the fiercely contested Guild of Photographers Image of the Year Competition.

The Guild is a highly respected UK based association for photographers, which has members from overseas as well. Each year it runs an online monthly photographic competition, judged by internationally respected judges, with awards given to the best entries. 

During 2021, the competition has attracted over c13,000 entries from the most talented of photographers. 

It has recently been announced that from all the entries across the year, the Guild’s Judges have selected JUST 10 images in various genres to go forward to the annual Image of the Year Final. Those selected really are the best of the best, and an image by Laura is one of those selected as a Finalist!

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “One of the Guild’s aims is to drive standards and creativity amongst photographers. Our competition certainly does that, for the standard of the entries we see each month is quite staggering. To have an image recognised by the Guild in the monthly competition is difficult enough, so to have an image selected as being one of the best in a category for the end of year Final is without doubt an incredible achievement, and shows just how talented photographer, Laura is.”

Name said “I am so delighted be a finalist in this years image of the month competition. In my time with the Guild of Photographers I've seen the level of work involved and the huge amount of entries and I still can't believe two of my images have made it to the final”

In December, highly regarded Judges gathered together from across the country to choose the overall winner. 
The results will be announced in early February 2022.

Photography at home. Laura's tips. https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2020/4/photography-at-home-lauras-tips Laura's Top Tips for Photographing at Home

 

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and staying safe at the moment. These are unexpected and troubling times for all. I feel for all us mums who have given birth during these uncertain times. You may have had plans for visitors, outings and celebrations that have now all been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. Not having that newborn photoshoot you planned for could be just another one of those things you feel your missing out on. Having had a baby recently myself I understand how it feels to not be doing anything you thought you would be when you had your baby.
Just because you can't make it to a studio for professional photos doesn't mean you can't and shouldn't still try to capture these times at home.  I must stress that the posing done in studio should not be tried by anyone untrained in baby photography but there are some simple sets that can be achieved. Baby safety is priority at all times. 
Being at home myself and having no props or equipment of any kind at home I guessed it would be a great opportunity for me to try and achieve what I'm asking everyone else to try. So I found some stuff from the Scottish baby box that I thought everyone would have and I gave it a go. It didn't go exactly to plan, the lighting at home is terrible, I'm not lucky enough to have any nice big windows BUT we did our best so I can post them as examples for you all. 
First things first, your camera...
Be it an entry level DSLR or a mobile phone camera I urge you to capture these first days, you'll be glad you did in the long run. For these photos I shot with an entry level that costs around £100 (cannon 100d) that I got for taking on outings with the kids, it's small and lightweight and I was impressed with how it performed over the mobile phone camera. I also shot some on my mobile which was tricky and I noticed a huge difference but still they gave me photos that were acceptable and treasured memories of a brief time I won't get back once this is all over.



 

Settings:
You may not feel confident changing the settings and that's fine but I would suggest to check that you are using the highest quality setting, default setting is often lower than what it is capable of if using a mobile phone camera.  If you do fancy looking at some of the settings or are using manual on a DSLR then there are 3 settings you can work with, I will explain in the simplest terms I can:
ISO, this is basically the quality of your images, lower this number the better quality will  be. If you have less light you can increase this number to compensate, lowering the quality. When working in the studio my ISO is 100 as I can have as much light as needed from my lights. When taking these photos I was at around 400 on my mobile shots.
Shutter speed (S on my phone)
This is how fast your shutter is and is important to freeze any motion from either hand shake or movement of the subject. As a general rule this shouldn't be lower than 1/60th. The higher that second number the faster it is and the better at capturing any movement. I used around 1/200th as Eris was awake at start and wanted to be sure I wouldn't get any motion blur.
Aperture
This is how shallow your focus will be. I usually use 5.6 as this tends to get most of their features nicely in focus. A lower number will give you a softer look and a higher number you would need for group shots to get more depth of focus.
Hopefully I've explained these simply enough. You can choose to play around with these if you wish or stick with automatic settings or even semi-automatic settings. TV setting for example on a dslr will allow you to set shutter speed and then will automatically set everything else for you and AV is the same but with aperture.
I must admit to not having had used much of the settings on a mobile before. I have the DSLR for outings so mostly don't use my phone unless for in the house and don't really look at the settings on it. my bad!  

 

Next thing to consider is your lighting....
I always avoid the built in camera flash, I find it gives horrendous lighting most of the time but this is just my preference. Everyone's different and likes different things, there's no right or wrong, these tips are my preferences for lighting and photography, feel free to change it up. Other photographers might do things very differently. 
You want to find your biggest light source around your home. Ideally you want big patio doors or something similar. I wasn't that lucky at home we don't have great windows but I managed so if your in the same situation don't despair. find a nice bright area with plenty window light.  I set up in my daughters room so I could use her bed and move it to a 45 degree angle to the window or as close to it as I could so that the light would fall across babies face nicely. This backfired on me as it looked nice when set up and by time I fed baby and came baby their was some bright hotspots of light in the area. I decided to just go for it and grab some shots as we were all set up ready and I had just got baby settled. This is an example of how you can really still capture some nice shots even when lighting isn't what you would like, nothing here went to plan!

 

Next....the set up and props
I put the mattress form my little ones crib on my daughters bed with the big white blanket from the baby box over it.  I then had a box on the bed to put one side of the blanket up on as a backdrop, you could even use your baby box for this. It might be easier to use a helper and get them to hold up the blanket when your ready to take the shot. I thought about all the things at home I could use for this like her beside crib or the couch, even a coffee table with the crib mattress on it and someone there to hold blanket, there are a few ways this could work.

 I used plain white body suit to keep the natural white theme going. I used the muslin cloth to roll up and put under the mattress at her head to bring her head up slightly. 
other great prop ideas are, little teddy toys you've been gifted and hats. If you've had a girl little bloomers with some of the outfits can be nice as nappy cover or little headbands, some come with outfits, I had one at home from Next, as seen in the photos. If your brave enough you could go with simple naked baby shots, just watch out for poo! 

ok, now a little bit posing....
your baby should be within your reach at ALL times and you should not attempt any professional level posing. Keep it simple and safe. I had her just lying on her tummy, I let her have her legs however she was comfortable as I only wanted to get a shot of her head and arms. The first shot I have just slowly moved her hand under her face which is quite a simple pose. 


For another set I have taken the box away and had her lying on her back on the mattress and folded the extra blanket up over her like a little bed set. I've shot these from above her and have let her lie how she is naturally comfortable. This would be a good one to cuddle them up with a little toy though also but Eris wasn't up for it (she's 6 weeks now so not totally up for newborn posing).

Another great pose for at home is the swaddled pose. I didn't get around to this but it's great for settling baby and an easy set up to try at home. Even better if you have a nice fluffy rug to pose baby on for these shots.

Don't forget to capture those little details like hands and feet also, you'll love looking back at those! 

Here's some examples of what I managed to capture at home with my horrific lighting and no props or lights other than the window. Each photo has on it if it was taken on a mobile or my little DSLR.  Check back soon for an update on basic edits you can try also. Good luck capturing those images everyone!

I plan to have these all printed to look at quality differences between camera options. Will update you all with the results! Thanks for reading.

This weeks cake smashes https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2016/7/this-weeks-cake-smashes Had a couple of great cake smash sessions this week. These are a fantastic way to celebrate babies first birthday if they love a good messy play.  I love putting together little themes or matching colours for these shoots. Cake smash sessions tend to be bright, colourful and lots of fun.

At the start of cake smash sessions we take a couple of photos of our birthday boy or girl in a nice outfit for some more traditional portraits. we then get them changed into a little nappy cover and let them lose on a Giant cupcake. most babies just love squishing it all and painting the floor with cake. After they've had their messy fun we put them in my freestanding baby bathtub for some nice splish splash photos. one of my favourite types of session.

Prices and more info can be found on the website.

Maryann and Ryan Wedding at St Serfs and Lochore https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2016/7/maryann-and-ryan-wedding-at-st-serfs-and-lochore Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Maryann and Ryan on their wedding day and what a day it was! They were so much fun and welcoming it was great to be a part of the day. Don't think I’ve ever seen Lochore institute look that amazing, weather was better today but a bit unpredictable but we did get a few of the Bride and Groom at Lochore meadows.

Again St serfs is a no flash and no movement kind of venue but I still managed to get some really nice shots of their ceremony. LOVE the one of the Groom looking like the happiest man ever. Hope they all had a fantastic day and are enjoying their weekend of celebrations.

Chrystal and Billy Wedding Friday 15th of July https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2016/7/chrystal-and-billy-wedding-friday-15th-of-july I had the pleasure of photographing Chrystal and BBs big day on Friday. it was fantastic to be part of it. The weather didn't turn out as we had hope though and it rain pretty much non stop all day so no outdoor photos for us. 

Since the weather was so bad we had an indoor set up for a while at the venue which was Hill of Beath Club and we still managed to get some gorgeous photos of the bride and groom and of course lots of their family members too.

Chrystal was surprised on her day with a horse and carriage to take her to the church. I braved the rain to get a photo of her inside, I love it with all rain and her framed perfectly in the carriage. 

unfortunately the local church doesn't allow flash or even movement of the photographer during ceremony but lucky we were permitted to take some photos during it, all in all the weather and the church rules didn't make it easy but we still managed to capture some fantastic memories of their day. wishing them all the best for the Future. 

You were all brilliant.

My own little Merida https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2016/7/my-own-little-merida One thing that i LOVE about my job is how involved my family and kids can be. They are all in and out of my studio frequently and enjoy doing fun projects with me that gets all of our immaginations going. Alexis is 4 now and loves to dress up and role play so she asks to have photos taken regularly with her new costumes and accessories. 

I was excited when she got this Merida dress, mainly because she's my little ginger curly haired scottish merida so it was fitting for her. it's taken quite a while to put this all together as i had to get a bow that looked right to use and to source a horse of course. it all came together and here's the final result.

Huge thanks to Jacob the horse and of course his owners chrystal and skye for letting me photograph him for this. was worth all the hours to create. Alexis is keen to have this displayed in her bedroom.

Rockstar puppies by Laura Spence Photography https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2016/6/rockstar-puppies-by-laura-spence-photography It was about 4 weeks ago when i learned i'd be photographing 6 gorgeous Rottie puppies in the near future. The thinking cap went on and i started thinking about a wee biker theme.  I learned of a company called "off our rockers kinross" who you can find on facebook, a friend was able to hook us up with a rocker as a prop and it was AMAZING. Teamed with the little leather jackets and of course a cool pair off shades we were ready to bring in the puppies.....

Puppy photography can be hard and time consuming but it's worth it when you see the results. These guys are 4 weeks old and had been running around for a while before hand so that they were just getting ready for a wee nap. made for perfectly calm and cuddly wee models. It was pretty hard not to smuggle one out the door with me if I'm honest. :)

 

Hope you all like the end result. and thanks to all who comment and share my work, much love....LAURA X

Going a little Disney Daft https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2016/3/going-a-little-disney-daft A huge part of my job is keeping my own style of photography and still encorporate elements that my customers would like and to try and make each photo something special.  

sometimes it's so much fun to just do something a little cartoon crazy, we usually laugh so much creating these photos and just look how adorable they all look. I find this type of session great for older kids aswell as younger ones as they often like to role play and dress up. 

we have seen a lot of princesses, fairies, mickey and minnie mouses and of course jedis recently so thought i'd put up a little blog with some of the cartoon crazy creations in the past few months.  hope you all like them as much as i do.

Laura Spence achieves national acclaim https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2016/1/laura-spence-achieves-national-acclaim Local photographer achieves national acclaim!

Local photographer Laura Spence has been granted membership of the 'Photographers Bar'.

Membership of the 'Photographers Bar' is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild of Photographers over the course of a year and have attained a score that evidences an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency throughout that a full year.

 The Guild of Photographers is a highly respected association for all photographers and it's competition attracts up to 1000 images for judging by an an expert Panel of Judges each month. Points are given to entries and these are then totaled at the end of the year. Those who reach the required threshold are then awarded membership of the 'Photographers Bar'.

 That membership of the 'Photographers Bar' is a distinction that is very difficult to achieve - in fact less than 100 photographers have achieved it in the 3 years since its inception, during which time  over 30,000 images will have been entered for assessment by photographers across the UK and from overseas.

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said "I am delighted for Laura as this is a great achievement! Submitting and having images assessed every month for a year and reaching the required standards to become a member of the Photographers Bar is very very demanding. It illustrates her commitment, skill and consistency. She should be very proud of what she has achieved!"



You can find out more about this award and the Guild of Photographers at their website (www.photoguild.co.uk) and more about Laura at her website www.lauraspence.com

Fine Art photography https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2015/12/fine-art-photography Fairy and outdoor sessions are proving really popular going into 2016. I think these are wonderfully imaginative and great not just for babies but especially for older children.

If your not a fan of the overly posed cheesy smile photos then these might be for you.

Typically these Fine art images combine a fantasy element, old fashioned outfits, elaborate decorations, fairy wings, animals etc and a lot of photoshop magic to make these photos into works of art for you home.

Contact for more information on these!

all about baby safety ! https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2015/5/all-about-baby-safety There is a lot in the press at the moment about Newborn photography and how popular it's become with many photographers urging people to ensure they choose a photographer who is competent in the safe handling of babies. I myself am part of BANPAS an organisation that is all about safety and about using composites, merging and photoshop techniques to achieve images like the one you see in my profile picture. we have hands on the baby at all times when doing this head in hands pose. here's their website where they have a directory of safe practice photographers (including myself).

This is an amazing way to capture your baby's first year in photographs. the first of 3 shoots is Newborn followed by one at around 6 months and a cake smash first birthday shoot.

It's been so amazing for me to watch all these babies grow up over this past year, looking forward to many more of them turning one over the next couple of months. Thanks to you all for your continued support.

another 3 awards this month https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2014/6/another-3-awards-this-month Feeling so blessed, i added to my award count this month and also recieved an email from the guild of photographers stating that it's now halfway through the year and it's possible that i might make it into the photographer of the year rankings. OMG so exciting. obviously there are another 6 months to go but to even be close is a real achievement.

Thanks to you all for your continued support!

British Association of Newborn Photographers (BANP) https://www.lauraspence.com/blog/2013/7/british-association-of-newborn-photographers-banp Hi guys, you all know that I love working with newborns and do so on a weekly basis. Baby safety 

is my No.1 priority when doing these shoots and i've therefore decided to join the BANP (british

association of newborn photographers).  I have now been approved to joing this organisation

which has a directory of photographers across Britain of photographers who are approved and

follow a safe code of conduct for babies.  Here's a link to some more info on this:
