At our studio, we incorporate many different types of lighting techniques and light sources into our repertoire so that we can be fully prepared for any type of lighting scenario. We utilize various types of artificial light sources into our in-studio sessions as well as our on-location photography shoots.
Cultivating and perfecting the use of artificial light is very important to achieve the desired lighting for a particular photograph and accomplishing a spot-on exposure every time, regardless of the availability of light.
Let’s face it, one of the true joys of a professional photographer is to see the fruits of their labor displayed in a physical format, preferably as a large-scale photo print. It just feels like the proper way these photos should be exhibited, the form in which they reach their true potential.
With this in mind, I’m here to talk about what exactly makes large-scale photo printing so appealing and why it’s the right choice for professional photographers.
One of the most important things about professional photography is lighting. Light is the one element that can make or break a photo shoot. Having the correct lighting at the right time is of the utmost importance.
Yet, many photographers, especially beginners, tend to overlook this fact.
Photographing people is a deceptively simple process these days. It seems with the wide availability of high-quality photo equipment and digital editing software that every Tom, Dick, and Harry is now a professional photographer. The reality is that true pros know technical knowledge is not the only thing that sets them apart from the amateurs. Connecting with your subject when taking photos is the real difference in professional photography sessions. The ability to get to know your subject relatively quickly and put them at ease can turn a session into a fun, easy experience where, as a photographer, you’re able to capture the true essence of your subject.
Getting amazing smiles from your photography subjects is as easy as one, or all, of these 11 tips. We hope these will help you create memories that your clients will treasure for a lifetime.
