Easy Techniques For Better Portraits

Easy Techniques For Better Portraits

Change your angle when shooting. Move left and right up and down. Just the slightest angle adjustment can create a whole new look. Once you find angles that you like you will start to find yourself using them more often.

This shot was from up above shooting down. You can use a small step stool to gain some height.

This was shot down below from our knees.

Try adding these techniques to your shots and you'll be surprised what a difference it can make.

Let us know how this works for you.

Sitting Example...Being Creative

O.K, I am posting a link to one of our Portrait Sessions we did the other day.

I am hoping you will learn a few things from checking this out.

First: We want you to see how many shots we presented to our client. We usually give between 18-30 depending how the shoot goes. We only guarantee 18 proofs with every sitting we do. This way when the client receives more proofs at pick-up, they are usually very thankful and surprised.
We always over deliver to our clients.

: We also would like you to see the kind of style we represent. We are very unique and creative and this is what has separated us from the portrait studio chains. (example: Sears, JcPenney, Walmart..etc.) You can be different and unique as well and dominate the market in your area if you do it right. Trust me, you will be a celebrity.

Third: Seeing how we present our pictures as an online slideshow. This slideshow is the same way we present our pictures online for our website. (our online storefront) Were going to show you a step by step video tutorial in a later Module.

Tip: Your website or slideshow is how people will see you and your business. Don't cut corners. Be Professional.

Make sure your volume is not muted on your computer. Listen and see how adding audio to a slideshow creates emotions. Just picture this being your child or loved one.

We'll talk more about this later.

Post a comment and let us know what you think.
