Meet Paula, our Happy Pear Quality Systems Manager, with a passion for photography! Paula took her first photography class three years ago, after she received a digital SLR camera as a birthday gift. Since then, Paula has taken part in many more classes and has been working on perfecting her pictures. We love a good Instagram picture; whether it’s styling our food for the perfect shot, or snapping a beautiful sunrise on the beach, we enjoy playing around with photography. So we thought we would pry Paula out from behind the lens to share her top photography tips with us! Cheers Paula!
How Paula Perfects Her Pics
The first photography course I took was a great way of learning the basics of how to use my camera properly. Since then, I’ve taken part in courses on street photography, using flash, black and white photography and travel photography. I do try to go out and practise everything I have learned and I have gone on a few organised photography walks in places like Bray Head, Killiney beach and Glendalough.
My favourite shoot was getting the opportunity to take star trail photographs in Glendalough. Star trail photography is a type of photography that uses long exposure times to capture the movement of the stars across the sky. You can get some amazing pictures! I also love taking photos of people when they aren’t looking. I was recently at a hen party and got some great, candid pictures of my friends. Taking a good picture is all about having an eye for it, which is something I am working on. It is pretty common to take 600 pictures on a shoot and come back with only one or two decent ones.
