Photograph like a Pro

Make my photographs

look like theirs!


Here are some easy ways to take your Portrait Photography to the next level:

  • Dynamic Compositions – Utilize the rule of thirds and experiment with placing your subject to the left or right of center.  This forces your eye to move around the photograph, making the image feel more interesting.

  • Soften the Background – Use Portrait Mode!                                                              Focus your camera on your subject, and the camera will blur out the background.   Blurring the background helps to draw attention to the subject, and quiet any chaos in the background.

  • To capture emotion…Get in Close! – get close to your subject, the photo will become more dynamic and personal.  Then have your subjects interact with eachother!  Now, this is a nice Portrait Photograph. Look what happens when I zoom in and catch Mom and Daughter talking!…Which image do you think sold?
