Be Best At Portrait Photography
When you look at portrait photography, you will see that it is different from other branch of digital photography. You can see that your subjects are human beings who speak their own words, have personal feelings and want to look good in the pictures. Surely you won’t hear the mountain complain when you didn’t capture the best side of it. Right?
One of the important portrait photography tips is that you will want to look at the around your subject before you snap the picture. Sometimes it only takes a small thing to ruin the perfect picture. It can be an old scar, a folded skirt, or simply a pole in the background. Imagine your client complain about the slipped bra strap in the picture. You will have a lot of trouble explaining to your client why you didn’t notice that.

Wedding Photography Tips
Weddings are one of the most deserving and difficult occasions to photograph. Lighting, distance from the subjects and lots of movement are all challenges with wedding photography. So, here are 8 wedding photography tips you can use to help make sure that your wedding pictures are just what you (and the bride and groom) want.
– This is especially true for digital cameras since digital uses far more power than film cameras. And if like most guests with digital cameras you’re showing your pictures to others at the wedding and reception, that LCD will zap the power even more. So bring lots (and I mean lots) of extra batteries.
– You never know which pictures will end up being the ones you want to frame or make prints of for the photo album, so be sure that your camera is set to medium or better yet, high resolution. Having extra memory cards will help make sure you don’t run out of space.
Use Hard Light for Portrait Photography
By the request of a photographer seeking tips on how to do portrait photography with only hard lighting due to lack of equipment, this video gives tips and tricks for using basic hard lighting for portrait photography, with and without modifiers and reflectors. Outlined are the benefits of each form of lighting and accessory. Mark Wallace tells us when to avoid shadows, and when to use them to our advantage. At the end of the segment, we see how to use shadows to create depth and contrast in black and white photography. The results are stunning.
First, Mark uses two Pro Photo D1′s to light his studio area. He explains that most people immediately take the reflector off when they first get these strobe lights, to replace with a soft box. Instead he takes the reflector off and creates a very basic, hard light with no modifiers. He places one light directly in front of his model and the other off to the side behind to light the background. This does create shadows, and he explains that he moves the model and the camera and also sometimes moves the key light (the light in front) to avoid these shadows. However, he recommends moving the key light in such a way as to move the shadow completely off of the background and out of the shot instead of moving it directly behind the model to hide it.
