See you next time Super Blood Moon

As you are probably aware, we experienced a Super Blood Moon last night, well technically it started this morning at 3 am. We were really lucky to have clear skies however this made it really cold so I didn't want to travel far from home, especially at 3 in the morning.

Astronomy is a subject that I've always been interested in and passionate about and I would love to visit the moon one day; until then all I can do is stare up at the sky, and when something interesting catches my eye; to get my camera out and point it towards space and see what I can capture.

I stayed up all night, on the phone with my girlfriend, Shanice, talking about all the superstitions that are linked to the BloodMoon and joking about werewolves and aliens.

I set up my camera and tripod, I was using my 70-300 and dialled in my settings; I was shooting between f5.6-f8, between 1/400 to 1.6 seconds when the Super Blood Moon appeared as there was less light and so my sensor had to remain exposed for longer to let more light in.

Here is my favourite image that I captured this morning.

Thank you for reading, I hope you have found this interesting and feel free to read more from my blog!

The Photobooth at Alykhan and Sultana's Engagement Party

This year I've been experimenting with my photography business, branching out into new areas and incorporating new experiences into the services I provide at Jamil Teja Photography.

One of these experiences is a Photobooth.

The first photobooth I set up was earlier this year at Luke and Hannah's Wedding, they provided the props and we took pictures using our lights. The second photobooth I worked on was under Osborne Photography, I was the second photographer John and Laura's Wedding and working under Karl was a really good experience and I learnt a lot from that wedding, I saw how he set up his photobooth, what props he uses and I was able to draw influence from that experience and bring some aspects into my own photobooth.
At Alykhan and Sultana's Engagement party I set up my third photobooth. Before the event, I went out in search for props that I thought the couple would enjoy.

The Happy Family
The Beautiful Couple

It's been a while, but I felt like sharing

I know I haven't posted here in a while, but I've been working on something new things that I will be sharing in the new weeks!
But I just wanted to share this beautiful picture with you all.

I've just finished editing the pictures from my last wedding and wanted to share one of my favourites with you all!
The first dance has always been a struggle of mine, getting the lighting right as well as capturing a beautiful moment, well I guess all that hard work finally paid off and I managed to capture this beautiful image of the bride and groom looking beautiful together seemingly just lost in the moment.
I would love some feedback to see what you all think of it, I'm really happy with it!
