A few opportunities to photograph people have popped up lately, which is nice since I really want to develop my skills in this area. These pictures are from a sweet-16 photo shoot, and I have an upcoming infant session, a toddler session, a family portrait and a wedding. "Yikes" on the wedding, but I have several months to prepare!
I found that I need to find out a few important things about people pics:
1. Poses. I really felt lacking in figuring out poses for this gal.
2. What should people do with their hands.
3. And their feet.
4. Staging people is interesting because you always have to be on the lookout for what is behind them. A few pics had buildings and trees I didn't notice while shooting the picture.
5. Beautiful subjects make for pretty good photographs!
This lovely gal is my friend's daughter and she is a beauty, for sure. Her smile lights up everything around her and she is just the sweetest.
If anyone has any great photography resources, I would love to know about them. Websites? Books? Videos? I am looking to learn....:)
