Yulia-Curtis Hixon Park: Tampa Portrait Photography


Hello everyone I am back with some new photos from my recent portrait session with Yulia at Curtis Hixon Park in downtown Tampa. It is one of my favorite places to take portraits, the park has multiple levels and endless possibilities for backgrounds. Plus you can continue to shoot there after it gets dark allowing for even more variety during a session.


Here you can see the Tampa Photographic museum in the background.



Yulia changed into this beautiful yellow dress as the light began to soften and I brought along some flowers I knew would look amazing with it for some of the photos. I had been wanting to use this colorful piece of art as a backdrop for some time but it doesn’t work if the subject is wearing a pattern of any kind. With this dress it worked perfectly.


I used my Canon 580 Flash in my Westcott Apollo Softbox for most of these images-it worked great with the amazing sunset these are my favorites of the shoot.




It was breezy on this evening which made things challenging since I did not have an assistant and the soft box kept wanting to turn the wrong way! We ended the shoot in the concrete amphitheater where there was some additional light after another wardrobe change.


The wind has challenged me a couple of times lately! My next post will feature photos of a high school senior I photographed at Fort Desoto Park where fortunately I did have someone else to help. I really enjoyed this session with Yulia she is beautiful and kind.
