My name is Louis Blythe. I'm a photographer based in Sydney. I work in one of the most exciting fields in the world, photography. I have the best job in the world and I'm extraordinarily lucky to have it. I absolutely love my wife, Eva. I love life and its crazy twists and turns, which I do my best to capture. Although I predominantly shoot weddings and portraits I also enjoy shooting personal work. I spend all my spare time stalking light in the city or waiting for the sun to rise at the beach.
My aim is to deliver immersive visual experiences frame by frame with little if any post production. Simple candid moments that you and your family can cherish forever. People often ask me “What inspires you?” It’s a big question but if I had to answer it I'd say: Eva, Family, Espresso Coffee, Film, Music, Photography, Waves, couples so in love they don’t know you are there, kids, positivity, and maybe the odd slice of pizza. I shoot a mix of film and digital. I love to create still and moving images for my family, my friends and my clients. I never make my bed, but I wouldn't say I'm lazy.
I'd go insane without photography and bigger stories.
This blog is broken up into a few sections which I have detailed below in an attempt at making things more accessible.
The process covers the nuts and bolts of photography specifically the aspects associated with shooting and the feelings and thoughts that run through your head while you are shooting.
The camera section consists of alternative views and reviews of camera systems. They are not detailed image comparisons but more my opinion on particular shooting systems and there applications.
The negative be it film or digital looks at the steps following image capture.
Be it a JPEG or a fine art print shipping work is important for all photographers. This section is dedicated to the delivery of the images
The work is the result of all the above elements folded together into real world deliverables.
