It doesn’t matter whether you are using your portrait for a website, business card, personal, dating photos or linkedin. What matters is that you look great in your portrait and have a good time creating it! Here are some awesome portrait tips for women and men to clarify how I help you find your message. I guarantee you will be thrilled with your portraits.
Helping you find your message
I have experience with branding so I’ll ask lots of questions to help you define what is important to you. This message is important for business websites, corporate photography, LinkedIn and dating sites (really!). I love to work with people who are uncomfortable in front of the camera.
I help every step of the way with clothing and background colors so you are the focus and the rest of the information is supportive.
I’m continually checking in with you as I’m working. I will be showing you the digital images and we’ll notice what your face and body look like. Do you like what we are doing? How can I help you relax more? We’ll keep experimenting with expressions and posing. I want you to be comfortable and have fun so we’ll take breaks and breathe or laugh. To get it right I have lots of solutions to send the message you want.
This is one of the things that everyone is concerned about. Some issues are double chins, wrinkles or darkness beneath your eyes. Are you wondering about that few extra pounds? I have lots of experience with what looks good and what doesn’t. I know what types and colors of clothing adds pounds. We can take care of these issues with clothing, photoshop (I’m very good at it.), lighting and posing. They all work together to make sure you look your best.
Professional photographs that are well lit feature the front of the face. The side of the face should have just a little gentle shadowing. Also, if the background is dark and you are wearing dark clothing there should be light to separate you from the background. Lighting can add or take off ten pounds.
