Taking Pictures for a Career
It’s safe to say that we have the best jobs in the world. We’ve done lots of work in Baltimore, Maryland and York Pennsylvania. The best days our road tripping with the family and exploring nature.
Looking at pictures from the past brings us great joy and it’s a great way to relive the best moments of your life. That’s what makes it so fun for us is to share that feeling with others.
Photography is more than just a process, it’s an art form that everyone can enjoy. Some of the best pictures I’ve ever seen weren’t taken by a professional.
There are a few things that you should look for when hiring the right photographer. When you’re sitting down with them it’s important to be honest about what is most important to you and your family.
Do they have experience photographing events, kids or professionals?
Does their personality fit well with yours and your families’? Once we had a couple on our last shoot who didn’t get along very well so we had to leave early because of an argument.
We don’t want anyone feeling uncomfortable during our sessions so this was obviously not going to work out . That being said, sometimes personalities just clash so there isn’t always anything wrong with that as long as everyone still feels comfortable enough to pose for pictures together.
Some funny pictures have been taken though when families are arguing and we send it to them later so they can have a good laugh. We like to make it a fun experience.
Other photographers are so boring and sometimes you’ve just got to spice things up!
What’s a Portrait?
Portrait photography is one of the most popular types of photography that people take. Whether it be for family pictures, senior portraits, engagement pictures or anything in between, portrait photos are everywhere. However with so many different styles out there, how do you know what to choose? Here are some tips to help make choosing your style easier!
When choosing a portrait style for your photo, you need to think about what kind of picture you want to take. Do you want something more traditional and serious, like the standard headshot? Or would you rather do something fun and creative with props or scenery in the background? Maybe an action shot is more up your alley if you’re into that.
Maybe you need a professional head shot. Or maybe you want your family or friends to look their best. Here are some tips on choosing which style is right for you!
The most traditional portrait photo is the headshot, sometimes called a “head and shoulders” picture. This shows just one person’s face from above their eyes up, usually with no other distractions in the background. Head shots are popular because they are simple and easy to do, but they can also be limiting.
If you want your portrait photos to have a more serious tone, choose this traditional style where the person’s eyes meet the camera directly. This is especially good for people who might not look their best in other styles of portraits because it puts them at ease by being so straightforward.
Family style portraits are usually done during the Holidays for Christmas cards. Everyone is standing together, smiling and looking towards the camera. These are great for family photos where everyone can be included in one photo. They usually include an even number of people, however if you have a large family this may not work well or it might make your portrait too big to fit into an area that’s small or confined
Every photographer has their specialty. Some photographers are great at taking family style portraits, while others excel in photographing people who might not look their best. With that being said it’s important to find a photographer whose specialty matches your needs.
The next time you’re considering having professional photos taken make sure to think about what type of portrait the photographer specializes in and whether or not this.
The best photographer I’ve ever seen was actually on a cruise. My dad and I decided that we would like to document our trip by having some photos taken. We didn’t know much about the photographer or their style, but were blown away with how great all of the pictures came out!
When thinking about photography styles it’s important to remember that each type has its own etiquette. For example a photojournalistic portrait is a more complex shoot where the photographer aims to capture a moment, not direct it. On the other hand something like traditional portraiture is more formal and directed by you as the subject.
