Hear us talk on the podcast how Ellen made this image below…
Ellen Talitha is a talented photographer and Mama of three little people who lives on the Mornington Peninsula in Melbourne, Australia!
In this episode we chat about how she creates self portraits [she is incredible at making sure she gets in the frame with her kids], children with additional needs + photography and also getting professionally photographed herself…. as well as how she learnt photography!
It’s a jam-packed episode with so much value. I hope you love listening to our conversation just as much as we enjoyed having it!
Enjoy this weeks episode, Mamas!
Ellen uses a Canon 6D Camera and Nifty-Fifty 1.8 mm Lens. She also uses that Canon App (for a photo trigger) in conjunction with her wifi enabled camera in order to take self portraits.
The movie Ellen mentions in this podcast episode where she draws some inspiration from is called Given.
The photographer who Ellen was photographed by is called Amy Woodward. You can see some of the image Amy and Ellen created below.
It’s basically a set of instructions (much like how a cooking recipe reads) thats takes you through a series of simple steps to create your own beautiful scene at home or out and about. Perfect to use while practising your own photo takin’ skills and when you need some inspiration or fun things to do with your kids while snappin!’
Have a look at a few of Ellen’s self portraits she’s taken over the years… simple and so beautiful! I hope these inspire you to give it a go, too!
From Ellen: “I spent time really talking to Amy about my vision and what I wanted to capture. I wanted to really show the tenderness between Zay and I. I wanted to capture the strength we have as mothers as well as the gentleness.”
Five kids between us, two photography businesses, 12 cameras, 23 lens caps and 20 years of photography experience! That makes us credible, yeah?!
