I recently had the experience of photographing a really fun Bat Mitzvah at Broken Sound Country Club. Located in Boca Raton Florida, Broken Sound Country Club is one of my favorite places to photograph. One reason I love photographing at Broken Sound Country Club has to do with all the beautiful shooting locations and all the gorgeous backgrounds available.
Below are 3 photos if Sara at some of the more popular photos sights at Broken Sound Country Club.
There is no shortage for places to shoot fabulous family portraits at Broken Sound Country Club. The Bat Mitzvah portraits below were around the club grounds. The mitzvah photo on the left was taken using a 200mm portrait lens which I used to throw the background of of focus. This was taken just behind the main clubhouse. The middle photo was taken at the front entrance off Yamato Road. The photo on the right was taken at the same location. Since the actual party didn’t start until later in in the evening I had plenty of time to cruise around with the family an select different photo locations.
The photo on the left was taken at the bottom of Broken Sounds Clock Tower. When you drive past the guard gate the first thin you see at the end if the road is this awesome clock tower. At the bottom of the clock tower is a star case water fountain. Since the fountain is circular your photographer has the option of photographing in any direction and still having the fountain in the background. By changing the camera angle I could put this beautiful backlighting behind the person being photographed.
In the center image of our Bat Mitzvah girl is standing on the sidewalk leading back to that famous clock tower. The sidewalk is lined with very nicely manicured palm trees that create a beautiful visual background. By having our Bat Mitzvah girl shift her weigh to one foot she is able to strike a pose using her other foot to add style to this pose.
On the right is Sara doing a simple hands on hips pose. This was taken at the entrance of Broken Sound Country Club along Yamato Blvd. Sara is facing east and with the low glow of the setting sun she has a nice hair light and beautiful face lighting. I also added a small amount of flash which gave a nice catchlight look to her eyes.
